The Boston Bruins have signed Head Coach Claude Julien to a three-year contract extension.
Julien, named the 28th head coach in Bruins history on June 21, 2007, led Boston to the club's first Stanley Cup Championship in 39 years in 2011, following a 4-0 victory over the Vancouver Canucks in Game 7.
In five seasons behind the B's bench, Julien has led the club to an overall record of 228-132-50 (.617 win percentage). His 410 Bruins games coached rank third all-time in club history and he is fourth all-time in Boston wins, trailing only Art Ross (361), Milt Schmidt (245) and Don Cherry (231).
Julien joined the Bruins in 2007 with 10 years of coaching experience at the junior hockey, AHL and NHL levels, in addition to a 12-year professional playing career. He has coached 648 games for the Bruins, Montreal Canadiens and New Jersey Devils in his NHL career, while posting a 347-218-14 record (.535 win percentage) and 40-34 (.541 win percentage) all-time record in the post-season.
