Boston Bruins Principal Charlie Jacobs announced today that the club has signed General Manager Peter Chiarelli to a multi-year contract extension. Per club policy, terms of the deal will not be disclosed. Charlie Jacobs and Chiarelli will hold a press conference on Tuesday, June 16 at 12:00 p.m.
from Douglas Flynn of the Hockey Journal,
He’s averaged just under 90 points a year over the past four seasons. He’s led the Bruins in scoring in each of his three seasons in Boston and earned All-Star nods in each of the last two years.
Oh, and he owns a no-trade clause as well.
So, why does Marc Savard’s name keep coming up in trade rumors this offseason?
Such is life in the salary cap era.
