NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Nashville Predators assistant coach Phil Housley was named assistant coach of Team USA Hockey for the upcoming World Hockey Championships.

The tournament will take place in Belarus from May 9 through May 25.

Housley will serve as one of the assistants to Peter Laviolette who was named head coach Tuesday.

Housley is still under contract as an assistant with the Predators while Laviolette is considered, by many, to be the leading candidate as the Predators' next head coach.  

Housley was an assistant coach for the U.S Men's National Team in 2013 and 2011.

In 2013, he helped Team USA capture bronze at the IIHF Men's World Championship.

He was also the head coach of the U.S. National Junior Team that won the gold medal at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship.
