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

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
