Philip Elzer Gade Larsen (born December 7, 1989) is a Danish professional ice hockey defenceman. He is currently playing with the HC Ugra of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).

Playing career[edit]

Larsen came to Rögle BK's junior team at age 15. On October 9, 2005, Larsen made his senior hockey debut for Rögle in a 3–0 win over Nybro Vikings. For the 2006–07 season Larsen was acquired by Frölunda HC. On February 24, 2007, Larsen made his Elitserien debut for Frölunda in an 8–2 win against HV71. On April 20, 2009, following his season at Frölunda, Larsen was recalled to the NHL club that drafted him, the Dallas Stars, who then signed him to a three-year entry-level contract.[1]

On January 21, 2012, he scored his first NHL goal against Josh Harding of the Minnesota Wild in a 5-2 defeat.[2]

With the 2012–13 season delayed due to the Lockout, Larsen signed a contract for the duration of the dispute with Lukko of the Finnish SM-liiga on September 27, 2012.[3]

After completion of the lockout-shortened 2012–13 season, on July 4, 2013, Larsen was traded, along with a draft pick, by the Stars to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Shawn Horcoff.[4]

On May 28, 2014, HC Yugra of the Kontinental Hockey League signed Larsen to a one-year contract.[5]

International[edit]

At international level, Larsen has represented Denmark at the 2008 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships, and at the 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2014 IIHF World Championships with the Denmark men's national ice hockey team.
