BOSTON (AP) -The Bruins fired assistant general manager Jeff Gorton and amateur scout Daniel Dore on Wednesday
GM Peter Chiarelli didn't provide reasons for the dismissals in a statement, but Boston missed the playoffs for a second straight year last season. The Bruins recently fired first-year coach Dave Lewis and replaced him with Claude Julien.
Gorton was the Bruins' assistant GM for seven seasons. He had been with the club since 1992, serving as interim general manager for more than three months until July 2006.
Dore has worked as a scout focusing on amateur players in North America and Europe. He had spent 11 years with the organization.
