Distinguished Achievement Award

In 2012-13, Phil Housley helped the United States capture medals at two international competitions. As head coach of the 2013 U.S. National Junior Team, he guided Team USA to the gold medal at the IIHF World Junior Championship in January and then in May, as an assistant coach, he was part of Team USA’s bronze-medal-winning effort at the IIHF Men’s World Championship. Housley also served as an assistant coach for the U.S. National Junior Team in 2007 and 2011, helping each team collect a bronze medal. In addition, he was an assistant coach for the 2010 U.S. Men’s National Team.
