Boston Bruins Front Office Experiences Personnel Movement


Boston Bruins Switch Up Front Office

This morning, the Boston Bruins officially announced multiple changes that had been made to the club’s front office.

A 22-year vet of the Bruins organization, Scott Bradley was promoted from Director of Player Personnel to Assistant General Manager, replacing Jim Benning, who left to take the GM job in Vancouver. Bradley will act as Peter Chiarelli’s right-hand man, with respect to the daily tasks of the GM–trades, free agent signings and so forth.

Ryan Nadeau, going into his 12th season in Boston, upgraded from Director of Hockey Administration on the scouting staff to the Director of Hockey Operations/Analytics. While he will still continue to scout college hopefuls, his new role will cater towards the using statistics and number-based data to help make scouting decisions.

John Ferguson, the former Director of Pro Personnel with the San Jose Sharks, marked the Bruins only hire, coming on as the Executive Director of Player Personnel. Ferguson spent five year (2003-2008), as the Vice President and General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs before becoming a member of the Shark’s team. His duties, according to the Bruins press release, will include “scouting at both professional and amateur levels for all Bruins personnel.”

    Jumping ship like rats leaving a sinking ship, do you think they know something?
    Well lets look at game 7 vs the Blackhawks the last three minutes will do. Then the last two games vs Montreal
    you know Montreal 7 Bruins 1. So how do you spell collapse followed by total collapse, I know TWEAK.
    It took about 20 years to get the Jacobs to spend $$$$ on the Bruins and Chiarelli is ruining that quick.
