The St. Louis Blues have announced that Claude Julien will join their coaching staff as an assistant coach for the next season, general manager Doug Armstrong confirmed on Thursday.

Julien, 64, returns to the NHL bench for the first time since being fired from his head coaching role with the Montreal Canadiens during the 2020-2021 season.

Hailing from Blind River, Ontario, Julien brings over two decades of coaching experience to the Blues. He won the Jack Adams Award as the NHL's coach of the year in 2009 and the Stanley Cup in 2011, both with the Boston Bruins. Julien is also Boston's franchise leader in regular-season wins with 419 and playoff wins with 57.
Julien began his coaching career with the Montreal Canadiens in 2002, spending three seasons with the Habs before coaching the New Jersey Devils for one season. He then led the Bruins from 2007 to 2017 before returning to Montreal for five more NHL campaigns.
Julien will join Drew Bannister's staff in St. Louis, which already includes 14-year NHL veteran Steve Ott, Mike Weber, and David Alexander.
