Playing careerEdit

Juulsen was drafted by the Everett Silvertips in the fourth round of the 2012 Western Hockey League (WHL) Bantam Draft.[2] During the 2014–15 WHL season his outstanding play was rewarded when he was selected to play in the 2015 CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.[3] During the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, the Montreal Canadiens selected Juulsen 26th overall.[4] On July 9, 2015, Juulsen agreed to terms on a three-year, entry- level contract with the Canadiens.[5]

Juulsen made his professional debut during the 2017–18. On February 21, 2018, Juulsen was recalled by the Canadiens[6] and played his first NHL game on February 22, 2018, in a 3–1 win against the New York Rangers.[7] On March 2, Juulsen scored his first career NHL goal during a 6-3 win over the New York Islanders.[8] He recorded an additional two assists in 23 total games for the club.

On February 1, 2019, the Canadiens announced Juulsen was out indefinitely with a vision-related issue. He skated in a total of 21 games for the Canadiens during the 2018–19 season, scoring one goal and four assists.[9]
