The Boston Bruins' search for a new architect will begin in-house. 

Peter Chiarelli's former assistant, Don Sweeney, is believed to be the favorite for the Bruins' vacant general manager position, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reported on Hockey Night in Canada's Saturday Headlines segment. 

Sweeney isn't the only person of interest, though. Ray Shero, who built a Stanley Cup winner with the Pittsburgh Penguins, is expected to interview for the gig, as well as Nashville Predators assistant Paul Fenton.
