Claude Julien headed back toward the Boston Bruins’ bench following what he appeared to think was the end of Thursday’s ceremony, which honored him for becoming the winningest coach in franchise history. But the Bruins still had one more surprise in store for Julien.
Boston mayor Marty Walsh, former Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers, former Red Sox manager Terry Francona, multiple NHL coaches, current Celtics lead man Brad Stevens, current Red Sox manager John Farrell, designated hitter David Ortiz and New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick all congratulated Julien on his milestone in a video tribute at the end of the ceremony.
Hear what they all had to say about Julien in the video above.
