CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Claude Julien was named coach of Canada's men's hockey team for the Beijing Olympics on Friday, and Shane Doan was named general manager.
Doan and Julien replace St. Louis GM Doug Armstrong and Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper, who vacated their positions on the national team when the NHL pulled out of an agreement to send its players to the Olympics last month.
Justin Faulk was scratched minutes before the St. Louis Blues' game at the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night, and the team confirmed the defenseman had entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocol.

ARIMO – What looks so different in Arimo, looks the same to Marsh Valley coach Doug Armstrong.
The Eagles have returned to who they are. Not the 2012-16 teams that sported a combined 4-36 record, but the “tough, hard-nosed, smash-mouth” Eagles of old, who clinched their first 3A District 5 title since 2011 on Friday in resounding fashion with a 69-0 home win over league foe American Falls.
