Brad Larsen is the Assistant coach of the Columbus Blue Jackets.
I played PeeWee with Brad back when we were kids, and we carried on to be teammates and friends.
Brad is one of the hardest workers I have ever played with, one of the best leaders, teammates and defines work ethic.
He was not always the most talented, but he knew the game and how to get the very most out of his skill set.
Brad is a perfect example of someone kids should look up to and stride to be like in the hockey world.
I hope you enjoy this episode, on Up My Hockey.
