Bruins rookie camp kicks off Sept. 4

Posted by Staff August 30, 2013 12:34 PM

The Bruins announced on Friday the schedule and roster for their 2013-14 rookie camp, which begins next week in Wilmington and will include three games in Coral Springs, Fla. On-ice camp sessions will be open to the public.

The Bruins will bring 13 forwards to their rookie camp: Anthony Camara, Mitchell Dempsey, Campbell Elyniuk, Alex Fallstrom, Justin Florek, Seth Griffith, Jayden Hart, Alexander Khokhlachev, Jared Knight, Matthew Lindblad, Wayne Simpson, Ryan Spooner, and Maxime Villemaire.

Seven defensemen were invited to the camp: Mickael Beauregard, Chris Casto, Alex Cord, Tommy Cross, Jesse Lees, Steven Spinnell, and Zach Trotman. The goaltenders are Adam Morrison and Malcolm Subban.

The first practice will be held at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 4, at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington. Practices will continue on Sept. 5 at 9 a.m. before the rookies head to Florida for three games against rookies from the Tampa Bay Lightning, Florida Panthers, and Nashville Predators.

All three games will take place at the Saveology.com IcePlex in Coral Springs. The game against Tampa Bay is at 2 p.m. on Sept. 6; the game against Florida is at 4 p.m. on Sept. 7; and the game against Nashville is at 12 p.m. on Sept. 8. The team will return to Boston that Sunday afternoon.

Rookie practice on Monday, Sept. 9 is to be determined, while it will be at 10 a.m. on Sept. 10 back at Ristuccia Arena.

Full Bruins training camp opens up on Wednesday, Sept. 11. The camp schedule has not been announced.

Peter Chiarelli: 'Mandate' is to compete for Stanley Cup every year

Posted by Amalie Benjamin August 30, 2013 09:56 AM
One Cup is clearly not enough.

With a contract extension in hand, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli met with the media Friday to discuss his new four-year contract extension, which will take him through the 2017-2018 season, and it was emphasized that his focus is on bringing more Stanley Cups to Boston.

"We want to compete for the Stanley Cup every year," Chiarelli said. "It's my mandate, my charge to do that. We have to be proactive in this cap world. We have to be aggressive."

One of Chiarelli's points of emphasis in the news conference was the need to get younger players on the ice. The general manager has already begun making moves toward that end, replacing his director of amateur scouting this summer. He said that it will be key to the organization to broaden the scope of amateur scouting going forward.

"It's a challenge everybody has, but we're certainly going to face it head-on," Chiarelli said.

Charlie Jacobs said that the negotiation was a particularly easy one to complete. It will keep the general manager in Boston for five more years, including the final year remaining on his current deal.

"I feel very confident in the hockey minds that we have here running this franchise," Jacobs said. "We see this as an asset that is really Boston's, and we're just here as stewards."

In Chiarelli's seven-year tenure, the Bruins have been to the postseason six consecutive times, including two trips to the Stanley Cup Final. The Bruins won the Cup in 2011 over the Canucks.

But when asked what he was most proud of in his time in Boston, Chiarelli didn't hesitate: "Probably the single biggest thing was hiring Claude [Julien]."

With the move, the Bruins are getting a continued measure of stability. Chiarelli has already been with the organization for seven years, and now he has five more guaranteed on his contract. That's important in building a winning team.

But there are also pitfalls with that.

"You have to continue to perform," Chiarelli said. "You have to keep everybody on their toes. There's stability, there's strong leadership, but you have to keep everybody on their toes, especially in this cap world. You can be stable and proactive, and that's what I'd like to think we do as a group."

Bruins extend GM Chiarelli through '17-'18

Posted by Amalie Benjamin August 29, 2013 02:54 PM

The Bruins announced today that they have extended the contract of general manager Peter Chiarelli for four years, keeping him in Boston through the 2017-2018 season.

Chiarelli -- who has spent this summer locking up major pieces Patrice Bergeron and Tuukka Rask -- will now have the same stability.

During Chiarelli's seven years in Boston, the Bruins have made the playoffs six times, including two trips to the Stanley Cup Final. The team won its first Cup in 39 years in 2011, beating the Vancouver Canucks.

Only two other general managers have brought Stanley Cups to Boston -- Art Ross (1929, 1939, 1941) and Milt Schmidt (1970, 1972).

In the regular season under Chiarelli, the Bruins have a 291-187-62 record (.596 winning percentage).

Chiarelli just returned from Calgary, where he participated as a member of Team Canada's management team.

Patrice Bergeron at '95 percent'

Posted by Amalie Benjamin August 25, 2013 06:27 PM

Bergeron 002.JPG

CALGARY -- Patrice Bergeron said he is currently at "95 percent" healthy in his return from a host of physical ailments that he suffered during the Stanley Cup Final, including the punctured lung that landed him in the hospital.

Bergeron spoke at a press conference along with four other members of the Team Canada orientation team at the Markin MacPhail Centre at Canada Olympic Park on Sunday afternoon.

"I feel pretty good," Bergeron said. "I'm pretty much at 95 percent."

Bergeron said he is confident that he'll be ready for training camp, and that he'll "definitely" be ready for the start of the season in October.

The Bruins center sustained a broken rib and torn cartilage during the Final against the Chicago Blackhawks. In Game 6 of that series, Bergeron also separated his shoulder, and it was later found that his lung had been punctured. Bergeron spent three days in the hospital after the Bruins season ended.

Bergeron isn't the only person with Bruins ties at the Team Canada orientation camp. General manager Peter Chiarelli was "officially" added to the management team on Sunday and Claude Julien is an associate coach. Milan Lucic and Brad Marchand are both on the roster, vying for spots on the final Olympic team that will compete in Sochi, Russia, in February.
