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 David Krejci's New Contract Could Mean for Other Boston Bruins Players

Sep 7 2014 5:13pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

A Thursday press release on the team’s website confirms that the Boston Bruins aim to keep David Krejci through at least 2021. Per CapGeek, the new contract will take effect in 12 months, elevating Krejci’s cap hit from $5.25 million to $7.25 million. With that, the first-line center will soon be the highest-grossing member of the team. He will pole-vault fellow core players Milan Lucic, Patrice Bergeron, Zdeno ...

David Krejci and Bruins Agree to New Contract: Latest Details and Reaction

Sep 3 2014 6:06pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

David Krejci has long been an integral part of the Boston Bruins' attack, and it looks like it's going to stay that way for a long time.      According to a league source cited by WEEI.com's DJ Bean, Peter Chiarelli and his staff have come to an agreement on a new six-year contract with their 28-year-old center: Krejci is set to enter the last year of his current contract in 2014-15, and according to Bean, the new deal doesn ...

Boston Bruins' Decision To Extend Providence AHL Partnership A No-Brainer

Aug 28 2014 6:09pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Boston Bruins are more than just Boston’s NHL team. They are more than a Massachusetts team. Unlike most other U.S. markets, which are generally synonymous with a single city and state (if that), the Bruins fanbase comprises a unique six-state sphere of influence. Like any major professional sports franchise in the 617 area code, they are a New England team. That is why it is an unwavering public relations plus point for them to embed their primary mi ...

Dave Lozo's Bag Skate: Are the Boston Bruins Still Stanley Cup Contenders?

Aug 19 2014 9:06am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

This has quietly been a very disappointing offseason for the Boston Bruins.  That’s surprising on its own, as the Bruins have become one of the model organizations in recent years and won the Presidents' Trophy in 2013-14. What’s surprising is the problems the Bruins are facing this summer are largely the doing of Peter Chiarelli, who has been one of the game’s best general managers since taking the job in 20 ...

What Simon Gagne's Training Camp Invitation Means for the Boston Bruins

Aug 18 2014 6:23pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Simon Gagne’s best-case scenario with the Boston Bruins may be a rerun of Jay Pandolfo’s winter of 2013. While there is no need to dismiss a more fulfilling outcome for the individual, the club should crave nothing less than an intangible imprint. Going in, it is the same basic arrangement as it was two seasons ago with Pandolfo. Boston has 30-something forward accepting an invitation to bring whatever he has left to training camp. Per Amalie Benjam ...

Will a Move to 3rd Line Help Daniel Paille, Boston Bruins in 2014-15 Season?

Aug 13 2014 6:21pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Boston Bruins forward Daniel Paille is no stranger to top-nine duty when it entails a short-term emergency promotion. With the official dismantling of the familiar Merlot Line, now may be the 30-year-old’s time to limber up for a permanent elevation. While offseason transactions have dealt some sentimental slaps, he should be keen on reaping a resultant upgrade in his symbiotic cycle. The Hockey News lists Paille as Boston’s third left wing, behind Milan Lucic and Brad Marchand and a ...

How Ray Bourque Still Resonates With Boston Bruins 35 Years After Being Drafted

Aug 10 2014 4:53pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Saturday marked the 35th anniversary of Ray Bourque’s admission into the Boston Bruins family. On August 9, 1979, Boston traded up to obtain the eighth overall draft pick, which landed the team an eventual all-around marvel. The marvel still holds some residual sway. The current faces of the franchise bring a few Bourque-like qualities and have impelled higher-ups to complement them with a championship-caliber roster. In turn, the NHL’s New Engl ...

Does David Krejci Have a Future with the Boston Bruins Beyond 2014-15?

Aug 4 2014 6:05pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Only a substantial sacrifice elsewhere on the roster would permit the Boston Bruins to retain David Krejci for another contract. If the parties in question pull that off, that still will not signal a career-long alliance. That is why the likes of Alexander Khokhlachev, Carl Soderberg and Ryan Spooner will warrant extra scrutiny in 2014-15. Whether or not any of those pivots pick up traction as potential successors could sway Boston’s level of urgency to reserve cap space for Krejci. Per Cap ...

Boston Bruins Keeping Organizational Defensive Depth with Trotman, Warsofsky

Jul 30 2014 5:49pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli has admitted that he must relinquish one of his eight established NHL defensemen. He actually believes he has a ninth in David Warsofsky, and four weeks ago, told the press that “we can’t go into the year with nine NHL defensemen.” But Warsofsky still makes sense as an AHL blueliner, as does Zach Trotman. Both saw their first slurps of NHL action in 201 ...

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 cre ...
