BOSTON (AP) - The Ottawa Senators released assistant general manager Peter Chiarelli from his obligations on Monday, allowing him to begin his new job as the Boston Bruins GM immediately.

The Bruins hired Chiarelli to replace interim GM Jeff Gorton last month, but the NHL ruled that he couldn't start until July 15.

That left Gorton running Boston's draft and signing high-profile free agents such as Zdeno Chara without being able to consult with the new boss.
