Dan LaCouture was born April 18, 1977 and is an American former professional ice hockey left winger who played in the National Hockey League (NHL). LaCouture is a graduate of Natick High School in Natick, Massachusetts.
During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, the Providence Bruins signed Lacouture to a contract. He played for the NHL's Boston Bruins and Switzerland's HC Davos in 2005–06. An unrestricted free agent in the 2006 offseason, Lacouture signed with the New Jersey Devils, playing in six games with the NHL club and thirty-nine with the Lowell Devils of the AHL. He signed with the Anaheim Ducks in 2007, but was suspended by the team after he failed to report to Anaheim's AHL affiliate in Portland, Maine. Lacouture returned to the Swiss League and played 15 games for HC Lugano in the 2007–08 season. After a tryout that made an impression on the Hurricanes organization, he signed a one-year, two-way contract with Carolina Hurricanes of the NHL. He was called to Albany River Rats, but left the club on December 27, 2008 and signed a contract with Barys Astana of the KHL.
He completed his final professional season with Norwegian club, Lørenskog IK of the GET-ligaen in 2011.
On April 10, 2014, LaCouture was revealed as one of nine former NHL players to file a major class action lawsuit against the NHL, alleging that the league has generated billions of dollars while subjecting its players to 'the imminent risk of head trauma' leading to 'devastating and long-term negative health consequences.'
