Claude Julien Intrigued by U.S. History, Says Shaking Barack Obama’s Hand Was ‘Highlight of My Day’

Claude Julien might be a native of Canada, but that's done nothing to squash his interest in the history of the United States.

NESN's Naoko Funayama caught up with Julien during the Bruins' White House visit on Monday, and the head coach discussed how fascinated he is with U.S. history, particularly in terms of the country's presidents and the choices they've made over the years.

Julien considers the opportunity to visit the nation's capital special, and said that shaking President Barack Obama's hand was the "highlight of his day."
