What Are The B’s Up To?

After being kept from the Stanley Cup Playoffs and what would have been their post-season, the Boston Bruins knew it was time to make some changes. They started by relieving their General Manager, Peter Chiarelli of his duties. Although it was hard to release such a long-held friend, the Boston Bruins Organization let go of Chiarelli for a number of reasons, including the role he played in the 2015 failure.

The next step the Bruins took was, of course, hiring a new GM. On May 20, 2015, Cam Neely (president) and the Bruins, named Don Sweeney their new General Manager. Don has been with the Boston Bruins Organization for 24 years. He is looking forward to his first season with the B’s and says he is “fully aware of everyone’s expectations to move the organization forward.” Sweeney has spent his last six years as the Assistant General Manager. Since 2014 he has also been the General Manager of the Bruins AHL affiliate in Providence.


Although of course the whole team as well as the Boston Bruins Organization has had trouble not being a part of this year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Bruins have been making valuable changes to their staff, and signing early rookies. They have signed several players to entry level contracts  including Anton Blidh. They have also donated much of their time and money to organizations such as FRAXA Research to fund research for Fragile X Syndrome. Boston fans can have high hopes and expectations for the future of their favorite organization.
