BOSTON, MA - Boston Bruins President Cam Neely announced today, August 29, that the club has signed General Manager Peter Chiarelli to a four-year contract extension through the 2017-18 season. In addition to his General Manager duties, Chiarelli will also continue serving as an Alternate Governor on the NHL’s Board of Governors. Bruins Principal Charlie Jacobs, Neely and Chiarelli will hold a press conference on Friday, August 30 at the TD Garden at 10:00 a.m. ET to discuss the extension.

Chiarelli will enter his eighth season with Boston in 2013-14 after becoming the Bruins seventh General Manager on May 26, 2006. In the previous seven seasons, the B’s have qualified for the playoffs six times with Chiarelli at the helm and have compiled a 50-35 postseason record, which includes a Stanley Cup championship in 2011 and an Eastern Conference Championship in 2013.

Chiarelli became just the third General Manager in B’s history to win a Stanley Cup in Boston in 2010-11, joining both Art Ross (1929, 1939, 1941) and Milt Schmidt (1970 and 1972).

During the regular season, Chiarelli has amassed a 291-187-62 record (.596 win percentage). In his tenure, the Bruins have had five 90-plus point seasons, including three 100+ point campaigns. In the 2008-09 campaign, the Bruins compiled a 53-19-4 record, giving them 116 points on the year, which was good for third-best in team history. That same year, the 49-year-old GM was honored by the Sporting News as NHL Executive of the Year. His trades, signings and draft selections have helped advance the Bruins to at least the second round of the playoffs in four of the last five seasons. Boston’s 54 games played over the last three postseasons are 10 games more than the next team over that span (Los Angeles, 44).

In addition to his duties with the Bruins, he is also currently serving as a member of the management group for Team Canada for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.

Chiarelli earned a degree in economics and played hockey at Harvard University from 1983-87, where he served as team captain. In his time with the Crimson, the Ottawa, Ontario native notched 21 goals and 28 assists for 49 points with 70 penalty minutes in 109 career games. Chiarelli attained his law degree from the University of Ottawa and was admitted to the Ontario bar in 1993.

Prior to joining the Bruins in 2006, Chiarelli spent seven seasons with the Ottawa Senators, five as the Director of Legal Relations and two as the Assistant General Manager.
