BOSTON, July 23 (UPI) -- Boston Bruins head Coach Claude Julien has signed a multiyear contract extension, the team said Monday.

Julien guided the Bruins to the franchise's first Stanley Cup championship in 39 years in 2011, and then followed that up with a second straight season above 100 points (102) in the 2011-12 campaign, before Washington ousted the Bruins in seven games in the first round of the playoffs.

Julien -- the 27th head coach in Boston's franchise history -- has led the team to a 228-132-50 overall record in five seasons behind the bench.

His 36-27 career playoff record ranks first in all-time post-season wins among Boston head coaches.

Julien was head coach of the Montreal Canadiens (2002-06) and the New Jersey Devils (2006-07) prior to coming to Boston.
