Boston, MA - Boston Bruins President Cam Neely announced today, Wednesday, April 15, that Peter Chiarelli has been relieved of his duties as General Manager of the Boston Bruins. An Interim General Manager will not be named at this time and the search for a new hire - which will be led by Bruins Chief Executive Officer Charlie Jacobs and Neely - will begin immediately.
