Northeastern assistant Laplante takes job with AHL’s Aeros

Northeastern assistant coach Sebastien Laplante has left the Huskies to take a similar job with the American Hockey League’s Houston Aeros.

Laplante spent the last three seasons with Northeastern, where he also played from 1989-1993 and posted 61 goals and 140 points in 134 games.

On a related note, former Michigan defenseman Mike Van Ryn (1997-1999) was also named an assistant coach with the Aeros.

Northeastern will reportedly name Laplante’s replacement in the coming days.
