During the 2009 All-Star Weekend's Skills Competition, captain Zdeno Chara fired the NHL's fastest measured "hardest shot" ever, with a clocked in speed of 105.4 mph (169.7 km/h) velocity. The number of injured players in the season saw many callups from the Bruins' AHL Providence Bruins farm team, with rookie defenseman Matt Hunwick and forward Byron Bitz seeing success. The Bruins went on to have the best record in the Eastern Conference and qualified for the playoffs for the fifth time in nine years, facing the Canadiens in the playoffs for the fourth time during that span, defeating them in a four game sweep before losing in seven games to the Carolina Hurricanes in the conference semifinals.

The 2009 summer off-season saw the departure of long-time defensive forward P.J. Axelsson from Sweden, who signed a multi-year contract with his hometown Frolunda HC team. Forward Phil Kessel was traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs for a trio of future draft picks, as Kessel and Bruins management were not able to come to an agreement on a new contract.

On January 2, 2010, the Bruins signed a deal with right wing Miroslav Satan for the remainder of the 2009-2010 season. It is a one-year deal for $700,000, and the deal includes a no movement clause.
