Julien contract extension expected to be announced
|09.03.09 at 4:28 pm ET|
The Boston Bruins have announced a 10 a.m. press conference at the TD Garden for an “announcement regarding” B’s coach Claude Julien, who was entering the final year of a three-year contract signed with the hockey club during the summer of 2007. It’s expected that the Bruins will announce a contract extension for last season’s Jack Adams Award winner at the press conference.
When Peter Chiarelli signed his own contract extension with the Bruins earlier this summer, the B’s GM said that retaining the entire coaching staff was high on the club’s priority list. An extension for Julien would appear to be one of the last orders of business prior to the opening of training camp on Sept. 12.
