B\'s Extend Affiliation With Providence
Boston, MA - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today the club has extended its affiliation agreement with the Providence Bruins (AHL) for eight additional seasons.

The Providence Bruins have served as the primary American Hockey League affiliate of the Boston Bruins since their inception in 1992, making the affiliation between Boston and Providence one of the longest standing player development agreements in either league’s history. The new eight-year extension will see the Providence-to-Boston pipeline continue through the 2015-16 season.

"The partnership between the Boston and Providence organizations has never been stronger and we are excited to extend our affiliation agreement," said Chiarelli.  "The close proximity of the two cities makes the relationship mutually beneficial for both teams on the hockey operations and marketing sides of our businesses. 

“H. Larue Renfroe and his leadership group have shown true foresight in both their guidance of the Providence Bruins and their implementation of improvements to the Dunkin' Donuts Center.  We look forward to expanding our collaboration with this new agreement."

“We’re excited to continue our long term partnership with the Boston Bruins” said Providence Bruins Owner H. Larue Renfroe.  “We take a lot of pride in helping develop the top Boston Bruins prospects and we look forward to continuing that role over the next eight seasons.”

Over the years, the Providence Bruins helped develop some of the current Boston Bruins including Bobby Allen, Patrice Bergeron, David Krejci, Matt Lashoff, Glen Murray, Jeremy Reich, Vladimir Sobotka, Mark Stuart and Tim Thomas.  In total, 156 players that spent time in Providence went on to play a total of 4,179 man-games for the Boston Bruins.

In addition, the Providence Bruins have developed many of the Boston Bruins head coaches and assistant coaches including Bob Francis, Steve Kasper, Peter Laviolette, Tom McVie, Mike O’Connell and Mike Sullivan.

Over their 16 seasons, the P-Bruins have made the playoffs 14 times (including this season) and won the Calder Cup Championship in 1999.  Currently, Providence holds the best record in the AHL at 47-15-3-3 (100 points).
