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.

Boston Bruins' Highly Suspect Johnny Boychuk Trade May Prove Costly

Oct 4 2014 6:56pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The narrative that goes with the Boston Bruins’ trading Johnny Boychuk to the New York Islanders is that the team simply had no choice; there were cap issues, and as a result the player’s out. It’s a narrative that’s been repeated in a lot of places, and it's one that Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli implied in the aftermath of the deal. “This was really hard to do,” he said in a press conference broadcast on the team’s official site. ...

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 Chara and Tuukka Rask for that distinction. Starting in 2015-16, this will mea ...

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 minor-league ...
