The hockey world lost one of its kindest and smartest figures on Saturday following the news that long-time executive Bryan Murray had passed away at the age of 74.
Murray spent the past twelve years with the Ottawa Senators organization, serving as head coach and later on, as an executive in the team's front office. Before Murray's time in the nation's capital, the native of Shawville, Quebec served as a coach for the Red Wings, Panthers, Ducks, as well as with the Capitals where he claimed the Jack Adams Award as the NHL's top coach in 1984. Over the course of his 18 seasons as a coach in the NHL, Murray amassed 620 wins, good for 12th most on the all-time list for coaches.
Saturday, teams, players, executives and members of the media all said goodbye to Bryan Murray.
Rest in peace, Bryan Murray.
