The Boston Bruins rewarded general manager Peter Chiarelli with a four-year extension on Thursday.

The Boston Bruins rewarded general manager Peter Chiarelli with a four-year extension on Thursday. 

The development will keep Chiarelli with the Bruins through the 2017-18 season, per the Boston Globe's Amalie Benjamin. Benjamin adds the Boston GM is scheduled to hold a press conference regarding his extension on Friday together with owner Jeremy Jacobs and team president Cam Neely.

At the conclusion of last season, Neely said locking up his GM is something he deserves. 

"He deserves it. He's done a fantastic job here since he's been here. From when he came until now, there's been a lot of player/personnel turnover, but we've kept the right guys and built from that." 

Brian Stubits of CBS Sports points out Chiarelli has done a remarkable job of keeping the core of the Bruins while staying below the salary cap. He gets credit for keeping Bruins mainstays such as Patrice Bergeron, Tuukka Rask, Zdeno Chara and David Krejci.  

The 2013-14 NHL season will be the 49-year-old Chiarelli's eighth with the Bruins, whom he helped reach the Stanley Cup Finals twice in a three-year span. Boston made it to the postseason in six of his first seven years, culminating in a Stanley Cup championship in 2011. 

He is the seventh GM in franchise history and only the third to win the Stanley Cup, joining the ranks of Art Ross (1929,1939 and 1941) and Milt Schmidt (1970 and 1972), as verified by the NHL's official website. 

Prior to joining the Bruins in 2006, Chiarelli worked in the Ottawa Senators' front office for seven years -- five as director of legal relations and two as assistant GM.  

He just returned to Boston after spending some time in Calgary, where he took part in Team Canada's Olympic orientation as member of its management team. 

According to the Associated Press, he will continue serving as alternate governor on the NHL's Board of Governors.

Buffalo Sabres: Should They Be Interested in Evander Kane?

Pittsburgh Penguins v Winnipeg Jets
In the past few days, the seemingly ever-present rumors about Evander Kane moving on from the Winnipeg Jets have hit a fever pitch once again.  After going on Team 1040 in Vancouver, via Illegal Curve, on Tuesday, Kane seemed to all but demand a trade from Manitoba. After being asked if he wanted to be a Winnipeg Jet, Kane acknowledged the constant speculation and said he would "carry on as if he were a Jet." Not the answer pro-Kane Jet fans wanted to hear.  So, as one ...

Spruce Meadows - British Day
Finally, the Boston Bruins are on the cusp of making their facilities reflect the “practice like you play” adage. Almost two decades after moving to a modern game venue, the TD Garden, they are aiming to follow suit with their tune-up grounds. The only marvel regarding the team’s Tuesday morning press release on plans for a new practice rink is that it did not surface sooner. The franchise hopes to let its players start grooming their game within city limits ...
