Claude Julien will be an assistant coach for Team Canada at 2016 World Cup of Hockey, Team Canada announced Thursday. Julien will be joined by Barry Trotz, Joel Quenneville, and Bill Peters as assistants to head coach Mike Babcock. The announcement comes as no surprise, as Julien was one of Babcock'€™s assistants on Canada'€™s Gold Medal-winning Olympic team in the 2014 Winter Olympics. Julien was also an assistant coach of Team Canada at the 2000 IIHF World Junior Championships. The World Cup of Hockey will take place in September of 2016, with eight teams competing in Toronto. In addition to six teams representing individual countries (United States, Canada, Russia, Sweden, Finland and the Czech Republic), there will be a Team Europe for European countries not represented, as well as a Team North America for North American players ages 23 and younger. Former Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli is the general manager of Team North America.
