CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty reports that the Boston Bruins signed head coach Claude Julien to a multi-year extension. The exact amount of years isn’t clear yet, although that might be revealed during tomorrow’s press conference.
Boston represents the third stop of Julien’s head coaching career (Julien began with three seasons in Montreal and one season with New Jersey). The Bruins won a Stanley Cup in 2011 and three Northeast division titles during his five seasons with the team, making the playoffs in every campaign.
