NEW YORK -- Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara will see some familiar faces behind the bench at the NHL All-Star game.

Claude Julien and his Boston staff will handle coaching duties for Chara's team at the league's showcase event Jan. 29 in Ottawa. Julien will be joined by Bruins assistants Doug Houda, Doug Jarvis and Geoff Ward.

The NHL also announced Friday that John Tortorella of the New York Rangers and Todd McLellan of the San Jose Sharks will guide the team led by Daniel Alfredsson of the host Senators.

Chara and Alfredsson are the All-Star captains this week and will draft their teams Jan. 26.
