Bruins coach Claude Julien  was named an assistant coach for Team Canada at February’s Sochi Olympics.
Red Wings coach Mike Babcock  will be the head coach — as he was in 2010 when Canada beat Team USA to win the gold in Vancouver — with Ken Hitchcock (Blues) and Lindy Ruff (Stars) also serving as assistants.
The NHL  announced Friday that its players will be made available to play in the Olympics.
Julien, who has coached the Bruins since 2007, was an assistant to Marc Habscheid at the 2006 World Championships, where Canada finished fourth. Julien was the head coach of Canada’s national junior team that won the bronze medal at the U-20 World Championship in 2000.
