Peter Chiarelli may have found himself another front-office job in the NHL.
The former Boston Bruins general manager, who helped build the B’s 2011 Stanley Cup roster, was fired from his post as Edmonton Oilers GM in January in the midst of a disappointing campaign. The Oilers would go on to miss the Stanley Cup playoffs for the second consecutive season. The Oilers made the playoffs just once in Chiarelli’s four seasons, and were eliminated in the second round.
Now, it appears Chiarelli might be joining forces with another team north of the border, with the executive being connected to the Vancouver Canucks.
Vancouver GM Jim Benning worked as Chiarelli’s assistant general manager in Boston when the franchise won the Cup in 2011.
