Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien will be honored Wednesday by the Gatineau Olympiques of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Julien coached the franchise when it was known as the Hull Olympiques, leading the team to the Memorial Cup championship in 1997, his first season as coach. A banner will be unveiled at Robert Guertin Centre honoring the occasion.

Julien went 141-109-16 in 266 games coaching the Olympiques. He left in 2000 to coach the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
