Bruins general manager has officially done everything except sign Brandon Carlo and Charlie McAvoy.

Just days after extending head coach Bruce Cassidy's contract, Sweeney confirmed a total of eight staff updates at all levels for the Bruins.

Starting at the top of the Black and Gold front office braintrust, Scott Bradley has been named Senior Advisor to the General Manager, while Evan Gold has been named Assistant General Manager/Director of Legal Affairs. Bradley has been with the Bruins since 1993, and had served as the team's assistant general manager since 2014. Gold, meanwhile, joined the Bruins in 2015 after spending eight years with the Capitals' hockey ops department.

In the video room, the Bruins confirmed that Mathew Myers has been named Video Coordinator, while Hunter Cherni has been named Assistant Video Coordinator. Cherni's promotion is a true hockey one, really, as he'll make the leap from the P-Bruins to the Big B's.

In the hockey operations department, Josh Pohlkamp-Hartt has been named Hockey Operations Analyst, while Campbell Weaver has been named Hockey Operations Data Engineer.

At the player development level, Jamie Langenbrunner has officially been named Director of Player Development/Player Personnel Associate. The Bruins hired Chris Kelly earlier this summer to help Langenbrunner in the player development department, and this confirms that Kelly's addition by all means meant that Langenbrunner was getting a promotion.

And in the scouting department, Arseniy Bondarev has been named a Russian scout.
