The Boston Bruins hired former NHL forward Jay Pandolfo as development coach Wednesday and announced a long-term affiliation agreement with their American Hockey League affiliate, the Providence Bruins.
"Jay got a good sense of how we approach things during his time as a player here," general manager Peter Chiarelli told the Bruins website. "He has a real common-sense approach that focuses on commitment and dedication. These are attributes that he showed also as a player and he will use in development of our younger players and prospects."
Boston assistant general manager Don Sweeney added the job of Providence general manager to his responsibilities.
