Stanley Cup Final
Lightning’s connection to Canadiens runs deep ahead of Stanley Cup Final
TAMPA, Fla. — When Julien BriseBois first started working for the Montreal Canadiens, they gave him an office next to the one Jean Beliveau kept at the Bell Centre.
The early days of his hockey career were shaped by the organization’s alumni. BriseBois was raised in the Montreal suburb of Greenfield Park and got hired by the team as a 24-year-old lawyer in 2001, leaning heavily on the experiences of Bob Gainey, Guy Carbonneau, Rick Green, Roland Melanson, Pierre Mondou and Rejean Houle.
