    The Winthrop Squirt B team won the chance to be Coached by Julien in a raffle benefitting the Boston Bruins Foundation and Massachusetts Hockey.

     Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien is looking forward to the end of the NHL lockout.

    He managed to have a little fun Sunday when he served as a guest coach for a youth team that won a charity raffle for his services. He was on the bench for Winthrop's 3-2 victory over Watertown.

    Julien addressed the team made up of 8- and 9-year-olds before and after the game. He also met with the other team and signed autographs for as long as it took for everyone to get items signed.

    Julien is anxious to return to his job and says "the people that are involved in those negotiations want the same thing as well."
