NHL notebook: Bruins coach Julien signs multiyear extension

Claude Julien, who led the Bruins to the playoffs in each of his seven full seasons as coach, signed a multiyear contract extension. Julien coached the Bruins to the Stanley Cup championship in 2010-11 and is the longest serving coach in consecutive seasons in the team’s history. The length of the extension was not disclosed. He also spent one season coaching the Devils in 2006-07.

• Kings forward Jordan Nolan was handed the second suspension of his short NHL career, a two-game penalty for boarding the Red Wings’ Darren Helm. His previous suspension, for one game, was in March of last season for punching Oilers left wing Jesse Joensuu. The league suspended him “punching an unsuspecting opponent.” Before that, Nolan had been fined by the league but never suspended.

• The Kings had two of their top offensive players back in the lineup Sunday when center Anze Kopitar and forward Marian Gaborik returned to play against the Hurricanes.

• Captain Ryan McDonagh will be sidelined 3-4 weeks with a separated shoulder, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault told McDonagh was injured in the first period of the Rangers’ 1-0 shootout loss Saturday to the Jets when he was checked into the boards by Jets forward Evander Kane.

• Predators defenseman Anton Volchenkov was suspended four games for an illegal check to the head of Calgary forward Michael Ferland.

• Oilers forward Taylor Hall will be sidelined 2-4 weeks with an MCL sprain, the team announced.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
