Oilers Hire Peter Chiarelli as Team President

Dave Sandford/NHLI via Getty Images(EDMONTON, Alberta) -- The Edmonton Oilers appointed Peter Chiarelli as the team's new president of hockey operations and general manager on Friday.

“I am honored to join such a great organization with a long history of success. There is a strong, young core here with good complementary players,” Chiarelli said. “I hope to bring it to the next level with a measured approach. Daryl Katz (Chairman) and Bob Nicholson (Team CEO) have a great vision here for the team and Rogers Place. I am very excited to be a part of it.”

At the end of this regular season, Chiarelli was fired as the Boston Bruins general manager. Chiarelli spent nine seasons in Boston leading the team to two Stanley Cup Final appearences, including one championship in 2011.

The Oilers finished last season 28th in points but still won the draft lottery. They are expected to take highly touted prospect Connor McDavid with the top pick.

Bruins Ruin Lundqvist's Return

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(BOSTON) -- Milan Lucic scored twice to help the Boston Bruins upend the New York Rangers 4-2 Saturday, spoiling goalie Henrik Lundqvist's return to the ice.

Lundqvist, who missed the past seven weeks with a vascular injury, was instantly challenged. Lucic scored just 1:41 into the game when a puck went off his skate and past the former Vezina Trophy winner. Lucic scored again just over seven minutes later when Torey Krug dished the puck to the B's hulking winger, who slapped it between Lunqvist's legs for a 2-0 lead.

"It seemed like everything kind of kept rolling after we got that break on the first goal," Lucic said. "It's good to see us step up and play the way we can play. Right now it's just continuing to recapture what we had here tonight."

The Bruins did receive a scare early in the second period when goalie Tuukka Rask left the game for the locker room. He didn't return to the bench but Bruins head coach Claude Julien said after the game that it appeared Rask was just dehydrated.

"He's scheduled to travel with us, he's scheduled to be with us and he should be fine for (Sunday against Carolina)," Julien said. "We just found out at the beginning of the second (period). I said, `Are you still having those symptoms?' He said, `Yep.' So I said, `Let's get you out of here."

Rick Nash scored his 40th goal of the season for the Rangers (47-20-7, 101pts) in the loss.

With the win the Bruins (37-25-13, 87pts) snap a six-game losing streak and take over sole possession of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Bruins D Dougie Hamilton Out Indefinitely

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(WILMINGTON, Mass.) -- The Boston Bruins have lost five straight, their hold on the eighth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, and now it's been announced defenseman Dougie Hamilton is out indefinitely.

Hamilton was hurt during the second period of the team's loss to Florida on Saturday. After leaving the ice, he came back for one short shift before missing the rest of the game.

Bruins head coach Claude Julien would not disclose what Hamilton's injury is, but he did say the young defenseman will be evaluated again in the next few days.

Hamilton is a big loss for a Bruins team that sits one point behind Ottawa for the final playoff spot in the East.

The 21-year-old has played in 72 games for the B's this season and leads the team in assists (32).

The Bruins have nine games left in the regular season, five of which will be played on the road. Next up for Boston: a visit from Anaheim on Thursday.

Islanders Sign Boychuk to 7-Year Extension

iStockPhoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Defenseman Johnny Boychuk signed a seven-year contract extension with the New York Islanders Thursday.

According to ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun, the deal is worth $42 million.

The 31-year-old Boychuk joined the Islanders in October when the Boston Bruins traded him for two second-round picks in 2015 and 2016 and a conditional third-round pick in 2016.

The 6-foot-2, 225 pound Boychuk has excelled this season, scoring seven goals and dishing out 25 assists while recording a plus-17 rating, helping the team challenge for the Metropolitan Division crown.

"Ever since I came to the Islanders, the organization has been incredible to both myself and my family," Boychuk told the team's website. "I am proud to be an Islander and look forward to competing every night in front of such a passionate fan base for many years to come."

Boychuk isn't the only defenseman the Islanders have locked up this year: in February, they signed 23-year-old Nick Leddy to a seven-year, $38 million contract extension.

Bruins Krejci Out At Least One Month

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(BOSTON, Ma.) -- The Boston Bruins will be without their top-line center for at least one month as they make a playoff push.

David Krejci will be out for four to six weeks, according to general manager, with a partially torn MCL after a collision with Alexander Steen of the St. Louis Blues on Feb. 20.

Krejci has missed 20 games this season with a groin injury.

The team was 8-9-3 in his absence.

Currently, the Bruins (29-21-9, 67pts) are in eighth place in the eastern conference, just three points ahead of the Florida Panthers (26-21-12, 64pts) for the final playoff spot. 

The Bruins signed Krejci to a six-year extension last September worth 43.5 million dollars.

Struggling Bruins Place Miller on IR

A.J. Messier/NHLI via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Boston Bruins have lost five straight, and now they've lost a defenseman as well.

Kevan Miller was placed on injured reserve Thursday with a right shoulder injury. Miller had missed 12 games earlier this season with an injury to the same shoulder, but hadn't missed a game since returning to the ice on Nov. 21.

Despite playing, Miller had to wear a brace during games and practices, admitting there was a good chance he needed offseason surgery.

The 6-foot-2 Miller's shoulder was reinjured during the Bruins' 4-3 loss to the Calgary Flames Monday.

Miller has played in 41 games for the B's this season and has a plus-20 rating.

To replace Miller, the Bruins recalled 22-year-old Brian Ferlin from the team's AHL squad in Providence. This is the youngster's first NHL call-up of his career.
