The Ottawa Senators issued a release Monday announcing that GM Bryan Murray was recently diagnosed with cancer. He will begin his treatment immediately.

Here’s part of the statement from Ottawa:

“Mr. Murray’s treatment schedule may require him to be away from the Senators office periodically. During his periodic absence, assistant general managers Pierre Dorion and Randy Lee will be responsible for managing the Ottawa Senators hockey operations department.

On behalf of the entire Senators family, the team is asking that the thoughts, prayers and support of the entire hockey community are with Bryan and his family.”

The Hockey News sends its best wishes to Murray and hope for a quick recovery.
