Julien took advantage of the opportunity to express his empathy for the former bench boss.

He’s excited about the new challenge.

“I like the direction this team is headed.” explains Julien.

It also seems like Bergevin pressed the issue.

His contract will last 5 years beyond this season (2021-2022)

As for style of play, there’s some good news in that department

“This team has the best goaltender in the world, defenders that can move the puck well, and good forwards.”
