BOSTON — Claude Julien, who led the Boston Bruins to the playoffs in each of his seven full seasons as coach, has signed a multiyear contract extension.

Julien coached the Bruins to the Stanley Cup championship in 2010-11 and is the longest serving coach in consecutive seasons in the team’s history.

“Claude is one of the top coaches in the NHL and has consistently shown a passion for winning,” General Manager Peter Chiarelli said Sunday in announcing the signing. The length of the extension was not disclosed.

Julien is in his eighth season with the Bruins and is the second-longest tenured NHL coach with the same team. Mike Babcock is in his 10th season with the Detroit Red Wings.

Julien also led the Bruins to the Stanley Cup finals in 2012-13, but lost in six games to the Chicago Blackhawks.

He has a 317-171-65 record with them and led the Bruins to the NHL’s best regular-season record in 2013-14.
