Claude Julien
took the long road to Navan, Ontario, where he  arrived at his family's home. It is also the location of his family's business. The shiny garage door at the entrance of his father’s roofing company was covered with a photo of Claude lifting the Cup after Game 7. This new edition of garage-door art gave coach Julien a chance to re-enact that moment for his family. Julien then proceeded to set up the Cup in the backyard. Now the procession of photos and autographs has begun and will continue for a while.

Claude Julien made the drive up the canal to the Tudor Hall reception hall with his wife and daughter. Joined there by more family and friends, Claude invites everyone around to feel free to pose with the Prince of Wales trophy and the Stanley Cup. And with that the line kept going and going, as hundreds had the chance to be photographed with one of the most famous trophy in sports.

Rideau Canal

Coach Claude Julien started his day off with the Cup on the Rideau Canal. Joined by his wife, Karen and his daughter Katryna, the Julien family posed for pictures in front of the beautiful canal and other amazing Ottawa city scenes. Many other onlookers joined their photographer and broke out their cameras and cell phones to enjoy the Cup.  5-year-old Katryna seemed to enjoy posing with the Cup the most -- she asked if she could lift the Cup on her own several times.
