Five from B\'s Invited to Represent Team Canada
BostonBruins.com \u2013 GM Peter Chiarelli and Head Coach Claude Julien have been named part of Team Canada while three Bruins forwards have been invited Team Canada\'s training camp.

BostonBruins.com – The Boston Bruins will be well represented on Team Canada for the 2014 Winter Olympics that will take place in February in Sochi, Russia. GM Peter Chiarelli and Head Coach Claude Julien have been selected to managment roles on the Canadian national team while forwards Patrice Bergeron, Milan Lucic, and Brad Marchand will have a chance to represent their country in the 2014 Olympic games.

In the 22 playoff games Lucic played in 2013, the winger recorded seven goals and 12 assists for a total of 19 points. He was one of the most dominating forces in the playoffs both physically and offensively. He is ready to bring both aspects to Team Canada for the first time in his career.

This will also be Marchand’s first time attending Team Canada’s Orientation Camp. During the 2013 playoff run, Marchand contributed offensively with four goals and nine assists creating a point total of 13.

Bergeron will attend Orientation Camp for Team Canada for the second time in his career, his first being in the 2010 games in Vancouver, Canada. Bergeron played in seven games for Team Canada, notching one assist to help the team take home the gold medal.

Along with the players, the B’s coaching staff and front office will be represented as well. Head Coach Claude Julien will be one of the assistant coaches standing behind the bench for Team Canada. Julien has led the Bruins for six years and brought the team to the playoffs every year, including one Stanley Cup Championship finish. He has a total win percentage of .622 for his six years as a Bruin.

Joining those four will be front man Peter Chiarelli, Bruins’ General Manager. He will take on an advisory role with Team Canada in the management group. In 2012, Chiarelli was named Assistant General Manager for Team Canada in the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship. The team lost to Slovakia in the quarterfinals that year.

The NHL season will go on a brief hiatus during the two weeks that the Olympics take place: Sunday, February 9 until Sunday, February 23. The Bruins will resume play on Wednesday, February 26.
