Jim Montgomery, the head coach of the Boston Bruins, recently discussed the team's choice to part ways with veteran winger Alex Chiasson, who was on a professional tryout (PTO) contract. While Chiasson's experience and skills were recognized, the intense competition during the Bruins' training camp played a significant role in the decision.

Montgomery clarified that Chiasson's departure wasn't solely attributed to his performance, saying, "I don't know if he came up short. I think it's more a lot of guys are having really good camps, you know?" The training camp has seen numerous players showcasing their talents, making it a challenging decision for the coaching staff.

The Bruins' choice to release Chiasson also aimed at providing him with the opportunity to explore potential options elsewhere in the league. Montgomery stated,
"And it's just coming down to numbers, and we felt that this would give him the best opportunity maybe to catch on somewhere else."
This move reflects the Bruins' consideration for Chiasson's career prospects beyond their camp.
