Malcolm Subban was cheering for his older brother, P.K. Subban in Montreal's 2014 second round series against the Boston Bruins.

That's getting some attention because, obviously, Malcolm Subban is a member of the Boston Bruins. The two franchises are heated rivals, but for now the younger Subban is honing his skills in the minors while he waits for his shot in Boston. If he ever becomes the Bruins' starting goaltender, which won't happen anytime soon given Tuukka Rask's presence, and P.K. Subban signs a long-term deal with the Canadiens, then that will be another fun element to the contests between these two squads. You can rest assured that Malcolm Subban wouldn't have been rooting for his brother if Malcolm was the one playing between the pipes.

Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien doesn't plan on retiring any time soon.

Julien turned 54 in April. "I'm still enjoying it, it's a lot of fun," Julien said. "And even if you have some disappointments like we did in the playoffs, you have to look back and say, 'Okay, we had a great season.' [You] let yourself revved up for the next challenge, and so on and so forth. I may look old, but I still feel young at heart." After serving as the bench boss in New Jersey and Montreal, Julien has been the Boston Bruins head coach for seven seasons. The team has been very successful under him though and as long as that persists, the Bruins will be happy to keep him on board.

Brad Marchand was asked to name the NHL player that irritates him the most and he didn't need time to come up with his answer.

"Tomas Plekanec from Montreal…I hate him," Marchand said. "I can't stand him. No, I probably shouldn't say that. I dislike him very much. Now somebody is going to call and get mad at me tomorrow." The rivalry between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens is always heated, but tensions are particularly high after Montreal edged out Boston in seven games in the second round of the 2014 playoffs.

David Warsofsky thinks the 2014-15 campaign will be an important one in his career.

At the age of 24, Warsofsky has played in six NHL games with Boston and he's still fighting for a regular roster spot. That will be a difficult thing for Warsofsky to earn though given that the Bruins have a bit of a defensive logjam. Currently they have six defensemen signed to one-way contracts, plus RFA Torey Krug and Dougie Hamilton. With that in mind, Warsofsky currently looks like the ninth defensemen in the Bruins' depth charts, although any trade or significant injury could push him into the lineup next season.

Joe Sacco is thrilled to be joining the Boston Bruins.

Sacco will serve as an assistant coach under Claude Julien. "Well it's obviously an exciting time to be a part of the Bruins organization right now and the success that they've had in the past number of years," Sacco said. "Moving forward especially with the group now, I feel pretty fortunate right now to step in and serve in the capacity that I'll be doing so." Sacco hasn't worked with the Bruins' organization before, but he's from Medford, MA and played at Boston University, so he should feel comfortable in Boston.

Bruins coach Claude Julien suggested that Loui Eriksson will help fill the void left by Jarome Iginla.

That meshes with what Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said in June when Iginla walking as a free agent was still just a possibility. Eriksson had just 10 goals and 37 points in 61 games last season, but he also suffered two concussions. He'll have a prime opportunity to rebound if the Bruins give him a shot on their top line in 2014-15.

Joe Sacco has joined the Boston Bruins as an assistant coach.

Sacco spent the 2013-14 campaign serving in the same capacity with Buffalo. He previously spent four seasons as the Colorado Avalanche's bench boss and finished with a 130-134-30 record. "He’s got some great experience, not only as a hockey player but also as an assistant coach, whether it’s been in the American League or NHL," Bruins head coach Claude Julien said. "He's also been a head coach in both leagues as well, so I think just the fact that we've been able to have a guy who has that much experience coming into our group [is important]. Also the fact that he's been a player for such a long time — we all know that he'll have instant respect from our players." Sacco had 94 goals and 213 points in 738 career NHL games.

The Boston Bruins have signed David Warsofsky to a one-year, two-way contract.

Warsofsky comes with a $600,000 annual cap hit if he plays in the NHL. He had a goal and two points in six games with Boston last season.

Zach Trotman said it was a "dream come true" for him to get a one-way contract with the Bruins.

More specifically, Trotman inked a two-year contract that's two-ways in 2014-15 and one-way in 2015-16. Even still, the fact that the Bruins would structure his deal like that suggests that they feel Trotman isn't far off from being a regular in the NHL. It helps that AHL Providence coach Bruce Cassidy has also singled out Trotman and Joe Morrow as "clearly the next guys in line" for the Boston Bruins. Trotman played in two games with Boston in 2013-14 and also had 24 points in 53 AHL contests.

Milan Lucic won't apologize for whatever he said in the handshake line during the conclusion of the Montreal-Boston series that bothered Dale Weise.

Lucic did add that in retrospect he feels he could have handled the situation better. "But more than saying what I said to the players, I was upset with losing," Lucic said. "I was upset with losing to them. We had such a great team that had won the Presidents' Trophy and that being the end and losing the way that we did, I think it all just accumulated to me losing my cool in the handshake." Lucic and the Bruins will get their first rematch against the Canadiens on Oct. 16.
Jul 21 - 9:25 AM

Justin Florek has inked a one-year, two-way contract extension with Boston.

Florek will come with a $600,000 annual cap hit if he plays in the NHL. He had 19 goals and 38 points in 69 AHL games in 2013-14. He also ended up playing in six playoff contests with Boston and scored a goal.
Jul 18 - 8:25 PM

Craig Cunningham has inked a one-year, two-way deal with Boston.

Cunningham can earn $600,000 annually at the NHL level or $85,000 if he spends the 2014-15 campaign in the minors. He had 47 points and 40 penalty minutes in 75 AHL games last season.
Jul 18 - 8:24 PM

Tyler Randell has signed a one-year, two-way contract with Boston.

Jul 18 - 2:45 PM

Tommy Cross signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Boston Bruins.

Jul 18 - 2:42 PM

Zach Trotman has agreed to a two-year contract with the Boston Bruins.

Trotman will come with a $625,000 annual cap hit at the NHL level. His deal is two-ways in 2014-15, but it's just one way for the second season. He had eight goals and 24 points in 53 AHL games last season.
