Former Bruins Head Coach Looking to Make a Return to the NHL

As first reported by NHL insider Pierre LeBrun, a former Boston Bruins head coach is looking to get back behind a bench in the league.

Since the 2007-08 season, the Bruins have had two head coaches leading the storied franchise, Claude Julien and Bruce Cassidy. The Bruins moved on from Julien during the 2016-17 and turned the ropes over to Cassidy to right the ship and get the Bruins back to Stanley Cup glory. Both coaches successfully led the way behind the bench as Julien brought the Bruins to two Stanley Cup appearances in 2011 and 2013, winning it all in 2011 and Cassidy once in 2019 but falling one game short of winning it all. Before his firing, Julien was the longest-tenured head coach in the NHL.

Claude Julien was initially intended to be the head coach of Team Canada for the 2022 Beijing Olympics. Jeremy Colliton coached the first game while Julien recovered from fractured ribs from an on-ice injury.

After being fired from the Bruins head coaching job, Julien latched on as the head coach of the Montreal Canadiens from 2017 to 2021. In 1,275 games coached, he has a record of 667-455-10-152. He won the Jack Adams Award for coach of the year in 2009.

With the experience and pedigree that Julien has in coaching, it’s just a matter of time before a team adds him to their coaching staff. Whether Julien is fine accepting an assistant coaching job or will only settle for a head coaching job is still unclear. Only time will tell if the former Bruins and Canadiens head coach will make his return to the bench this coming season.

  1. I think as a long time Bruin’s fan from Kingston, that the whole front office fron Neely to Sweeny should have been fired not Cassidy, who has done wonders with the players he has been forced to put in the line up game after game!!!!!
    What a she reminds me of shades of Joe T. and what did the Nruins get in return.
    There is nothing coming up from the farm!!!!!!!

  2. That will give the management a scare and something to think about and I hope their key players get traded or find better contracts. The Bruins don’t deserve a good team now that Cassidy is out, nor should the fans go to any games, I say boycott. Bring Cassidy back!
