The Ottawa Senators have unveiled a helmet decal they will wear on their helmets this season honouring former coach and general manager Bryan Murray.
The sticker reads ‘Family Man, Friend, Coach and Mentor. 1942-2017‘, with Murray’s initials in the centre.
Murray passed away from colon cancer back in August. He was 74 years old.
In Murray’s four seasons as Senators head coach (2005-2008), he lead the team to an Eastern Conference Championship and a Stanley Cup Final appearance in 2007. Murray held the role of the Senators general manager from 2007 to 2016. After stepping down from the GM role, he remained with the team as special adviser.
