Boston Coach Claude Julien will be joining Head Coach Mike Babcock behind the bench for Canada’s Olympic men’s hockey team, and several of his Bruins players may be at the Sochi Games, as well.

Detroit’s Babcock is returning as coach of Canada’s Olympic team, with Julien, St. Louis’s Ken Hitchcock and Dallas’s Lindy Ruff as assistants.

Hockey Canada also announced the list of 47 players invited to a summer orientation camp Aug. 25-28 in Calgary. The camp begins the process of selecting the 25 players who will make the Olympic team. Boston’s Patrice Bergeron is among 15 invitees who helped Canada win gold in Vancouver in 2010. Bruins teammates Milan Lucic and Brad Marchand are among the newcomers invited to the camp.

Notable players not invited include 41-year-old goalie Martin Brodeur and Jarome Iginla.
