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.

What Are Justin Florek's Chances for a Regular Boston Bruins Roster Spot?

Jul 28 2014 5:32pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

As of Monday, CapGeek lists Justin Florek among the 12 forwards with a contract on the Boston Bruins NHL payroll. Taking the long-injured Marc Savard out of the equation and assuming the club re-ups Reilly Smith, that basic listing could stick. Florek, one of six skaters to re-sign with the organization earlier this month, stands out as the only forward under that heading without a full NHL season to his credit. As a second-year professional in 2013-14, he debuted on ...

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 ...
