Bruins coach Claude Julien keeps busy during lockout, helps charity by coaching youth team

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 cancelled the entire 2004-05 season.

Many Bruins players, including Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron and Tyler Seguin, have decided to play abroad while waiting for a new collective bargaining agreement.

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.
