Bruins coach Julien keeps busy during lockout
BOSTON -- Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien will keep busy during the NHL lockout.
Julien has agreed to coach a youth hockey team later this month to raise money for charity. The team will be chosen by a raffle.
NHL owners have locked out the players for the third time since commissioner Gary Bettman took office in 1993, including a work stoppage that canceled the entire 2004-05 season.
But coaches don't have much to do.
Money from the raffle will support the Boston Bruins Foundation and Massachusetts Hockey, the sport's governing body in the state.
