Guy Carbonneau to the All-Star Game if Canadiens Win Against Capitals

Daniel ArouchianSenior Analyst IJanuary 10, 2009

Boston Bruins head coach Claude Julien will lead the 2009 Eastern All Star Team. For now, the assistant coach is still unknown. The position will go to the Washington Capitals head coach, Bruce Boudreau, or Montreal Canadiens head coach, Guy Charbonneau.

These teams face each other tonight, and the team that wins will have his head coach at the 2009 All Star Game, as Julien's assistant. The game will take place on Sunday, Jan. 25 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

The selection process for NHL All Star Game coaches and assistant coaches is simple.  The head coach and assistant coach are the head coaches of the two best teams, in each respective conference.
