Peter Chiarelli
General Manager & Alternate Governor

Peter Chiarelli Peter Chiarelli is in his ninth season as the team's General Manager, becoming just the seventh man in club history to hold that position when he was named to the post on May 26, 2006.

He is in charge of every aspect of the team's hockey operations and also serves the club as an Alternate Governor on the NHL's Board of Governors. He officially began his position in Boston on July 8, 2006.

Chiarelli's vision for the Bruins has from the start involved a team blending youth with experience, speed with physical play and character on and off of the ice. He saw that vision realized with the team's 2011 Stanley Cup championship, as he either re-signed or acquired through draft, trade or free agency every player on the title squad. The club returned to the Stanley Cup Final in 2013 and Chiarelli has continued to position the club as a strong contender for additional banners to be raised to the TD Garden rafters in the coming years.

He is just the third General Manager in team history to bring a Stanley Cup to Boston, joining Art Ross (1929, 1939 and 1941) and Milt Schmidt (1970 and 1972). His moves have enabled the Bruins to be the only team to advance to at least the second round of the playoffs in five of the last six seasons and Boston has the second-most post-season wins over both the last four-year (39 to Los Angeles' 43) and six-year (53 to Chicago's 57) spans.

His overall regular season record as the team's General Manager stands at 345-206-71, a .612 win percentage, and his teams have topped the 100 point plateau on four occasions. That includes the third- and fourth-best seasons in club history with a 116-point campaign in 2008-09 (earning him The Sporting News NHL Executive of the Year honors) and last season's 117-point mark with the 54 wins in 2013-14 tying for the second-most single season victories in club annals. Boston's 384 points over the past four regular seasons are the second-highest total in the NHL in that span.

Chiarelli came to the Bruins following seven seasons with the Ottawa Senators, five as their Director of Legal Relations and two as Assistant General Manager. He was involved in all aspects of that team's hockey operations, including contract research and negotiations, salary arbitration and all player personnel matters. He was also involved in overseeing Ottawa's top developmental affiliate, the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League. The Senators had four 100+ point seasons during his tenure, never finished below 94 points and they finished with the League's top record in 2002-03 and the best record in the Eastern Conference in 2005-06 with 113 points in each of those seasons.

A native of Ottawa, Ontario, Chiarelli played four seasons of college hockey at Harvard University, where he served the team as captain. He had 21 goals and 28 assists for 49 points with 70 penalty minutes in 109 career college games and earned his degree in Economics in 1987. He obtained his law degree from the University of Ottawa, was admitted to the Ontario bar in 1993 and spent six years as a lawyer and player agent prior to joining the Senators front office.

In addition to his duties with the Bruins, he also served as an Assistant General Manager for Team Canada as that squad won the Gold Medal at the 2014 Olympic Games.

Chiarelli (pronounced shuh-REH-lee) and his wife Alicia have two children, daughter Talia and son Cameron.
