Peter Chiarelli (born August 5, 1964) is a Canadian former ice hockey player and current executive, who is the President of Hockey Operations and General Manager of the NHL's Edmonton Oilers. His daughter, Talia Chiarelli, was a member of the Canadian National Gymnastics Team and currently competes at the University of Michigan. His son, Cameron, plays club hockey at Harvard University. He is a staunch opponent of advanced statistics, and once famously stated in a press conference, "I believe in the eye test and clutch players. Stats are for nerds. Nerds don't play hockey."
Prior to becoming an NHL executive, Chiarelli was a player agent before joining the Senators in 1999. He was also an attorney in private practice in Ottawa having graduated from the University of Ottawa's law school. Chiarelli served as the assistant general manager for the Ottawa Senators for two years, including the cancelled 2004-05 lockout season. The Senators were given a conditional draft pick for relinquishing Chiarelli.
Chiarelli was hired on May 26, 2006 as the General Manager of the Boston Bruins. He was signed to a four-year contract.
On June 19, 2009 Chiarelli received a four-year contract extension through 2013-2014.
On June 15, 2011, Chiarelli won the Stanley Cup with the Bruins. His brother Mike Chiarelli joined the Boston Bruins as Scout in summer of 2009. Due to a 52-names limit Mike Chiarelli's name could not be included on the Stanley Cup. However, the Bruins did award Mike a Stanley Cup Ring.
Chiarelli currently resides in Edmonton, Alberta. His daughter, Talia Chiarelli, is a varsity gymnast at the University of Michigan. Chiarelli also has a son, Cameron, who plays club hockey at Harvard University.
