Bryan Erickson

If you are looking to buy a car in the Roseau, Minnesota area, Bryan Erickson is your man. The longtime Team USA player owns and operates Bryan Erickson Auto in Northern Minnesota. Erickson is back home after a long career in amateur, international and professional hockey.
Erickson turned pro with the Hershey Bears directly out of the University of Minnesota. After a single regular season game with the chocolate and white, Ericksson netted his first pro goal in the 1983 Calder Cup playoffs. He liked it so much, he scored two more to complete the hat trick.
Erickson spent half of the 1983-84 season in Hershey before landing the coveted NHL position with the Washington Capitals. In all, Erickson compiled 205 points in the NHL with the Capitals, Winnipeg Jets, Los Angeles Kings and Pittsburgh Penguins.
