Montreal Canadiens’ Head Coach Claude Julien Rushed To Hospital, Not Expected To Rejoin Team Before End Of Philadelphia Series

Canadiens head coach Claude Julien was rushed to a Toronto hospital Wednesday night following his team’s Game 1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers, GM Marc Bergevin said Thursday.

Bergevin told reporters that Julien, 60,  was taken to the hospital after experiencing chest pains. Bergevin said it was not COVID-19 related.

Sports Illustrated is reporting that Julien is undergoing tests Thursday while he is kept under observation.

He will not be back on the Habs’ bench until at least the conclusion of the series. Assistant coach Kirk Muller will serve as the team’s interim head coach in Julien’s absence.
