The Bruins had some holes to fill at the NHL and AHL levels, and they did so early today. First, former Bruin Chris Kelly will take over for Jay Pandolfo as an assistant coach of the Bruins. In early July, Pandolfo accepted an associate head coach position on Boston University men’s hockey’s coaching staff. Speaking of former Bruins, Adam McQuaid is now a player development coordinator for the organization. Lastly, Ryan Mougenel will take over as head coach of the Providence Bruins for Jay Leach. Back in early July, Leach became an assistant coach for the Seattle Kraken.
We know these guys.
The #NHLBruins have announced the following front office and coaching staff updates.

Kelly, McQuaid, and Mougenel were all present at Bruins development camp this past week, so it makes sense to see these hires announced. It’s great to see a couple of well-liked former Bruins, and a bright mind in Mougenel join the ranks. It’s hard not to feel good about these moves. It has been a busy offseason in all avenues for the Bruins.
