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.
You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far.

Those are tough places to win.
