Neely Named President Of Bruins
BOSTON (AP) – Hockey Hall of Famer Cam Neely will be named the
president of the Boston Bruins, a team official familiar with the
decision told The Associated Press.
The official confirmed the decision to the AP on the condition
of anonymity because it had not been officially announced. The
Bruins have scheduled a “major announcement” for Wednesday.
The Bruins have not had a president since Harry Sinden stepped
down in 2006 after 17 years in the position.
A powerful forward, Neely played the last 10 years of his career
in Boston and twice helped the Bruins reach the Stanley Cup finals.
They have not been back since 1990.
They led the Philadelphia Flyers 3-0 in the Eastern Conference
semifinals this year before becoming the third team in NHL history
to blow such a lead and lose in a seven-game series.
