Canadiens Coach Claude Julien Hospitalized With Chest Pains

Montreal Canadiens head coach Claude Julien was hospitalized Wednesday night after experiencing chest pains.

According to multiple reports, Montreal Canadiens head coach Claude Julien was hospitalized Wednesday night after experiencing chest pains. Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin made the announcement Thursday and said the coach is not expected to rejoin the team before the end of the Eastern Conference Quarter-Finals series and the Philadelphia Flyers.

Kirk Muller will take over Julien’s duties as head coach in his absence.

Julien will be undergoing tests today and the latest word is that this is not COVID-related.

The head coach, who turned 60 in April, will be kept for observation and we’ll make sure to have news on his condition as it is revealed.

The Canadiens lost Game 1 of their first-round series 2-1 to the Flyers earlier Wednesday night but their season has been considered a success to date after knocking the Pittsburgh Penguins out of the play-in rounds.

Julien’s former team the Boston Bruins sent their thoughts when they wrote on Twitter today, “Sending Claude best wishes and hopes for a speedy recovery from everyone at the Bruins organization.”
