MONTREAL - It’s fitting in a summer that saw a reboot of the Star Trek franchise dominate at the box office that the man they call Captain Kirk will remain behind the Habs bench alongside new head coach Jacques Martin.
Coming off his third season with the Canadiens as an assistant coach, Kirk Muller will continue to pass on to his players what made him a successful player for 19 NHL seasons and a Stanley Cup champion with the Montreal in 1993.
