QMJHL: One season, won championship. Won Memorial Cup.

Canada: Head Coach World Juniors (bronze), Assistant on 2006 World Championships Team (fourth).

Defensive-minded coach that works very well with two-way centermen. Loves defensive players that can move the puck effectively and does fine with transition even with limited puck-movers on the backline. Will hide offensive defensemen that may be liabilities deeper in the lineup. Runs defensive systems that actually encourage shots against, but very low quality ones from the low-percentage areas, then has players collapse back to the goaltender to retrieve or clear rebounds. Has had remarkable success with even journeymen goaltenders.

QMJHL: His starter had the best save pct. in the league (0.908). 3rd in GAA (2.74). (Christian Bronsard - career journeyman, spent most time in French league and second-tier German league). Before Julien got there, the team had Jose Theodore post a 3.38 GAA and .889 save pct. The year after Julien left, two scrub goalies posted 3.53 & 3.90 GAAs and .875 & .881 save percentages.

AHL: In his final season (the one in which he's called up late to Montreal), he oversaw Mathieu Garon post the league's best save pct. (.937), Eric Fichaud was 4th (including Garon) at .925. Both of their career best AHL seasons. [Min. 20 games] ...Garon also led the league in GAA (1.77), Fichaud was 7th (2.28).
