Ottawa Senators general manager Bob Murray was diagnosed with cancer on July 7.

Ottawa Senators general manager Bob Murray was diagnosed with cancer on July 7.

The Senators issued a press release on their official website: 

"The Ottawa Senators announced today that General Manager and President of Hockey Operations Bryan Murray has been recently diagnosed with cancer. The Senators organization issued the following statement:

"'Mr. Murray is undergoing further testing and will begin treatment immediately for his condition as prescribed by the team's doctors in collaboration with specialists. 

"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 Senators and Mr. Murray ask that you please respect his family's privacy during this time. 

"'There will be on further comment from the Senators organization.'"

According to The Ottawa Sun, the Senators did not disclose the type of cancer Murray has. Murray has been with the team since 2004, the year when he was named head coach: 

"The team has not released the type of cancer Murray is battling, nor any information about treatment or prognosis. Murray, a 71-year-old native of Shawville, has been with the Senators since being named coach in 2004...

"....During his tenure as coach and then GM, a position to which he was named in 2007, Murray has been part of some of the team's most thrilling seasons -- and some of its biggest disappointments.

"Through it all, he has leant an air of stability in the front office. He added the title of executive vice president of Senators Sports and Entertainment  to his GM duties in 2009.

"During his two seasons behind the Ottawa bench, he compiled a 107-55-20 record with the most powerful teams in the Sens' modern history. The Senators went to the Stanley Cup Final in 2007.

"He has spent more than three decades involved as a coach or in team management positions in the NHL in Detroit, Anaheim, Florida and Washington as well as Ottawa.

 

"Last season, when the Senators were expected to follow up on a surprisingly strong 2012-13 campaign, was one of the most disappointing during his reign in Ottawa.

"Most recently, Murray was involved in the Senators' NHL draft preparations and the trade of disgruntled captain Jason Spezza to the Dallas Stars for forward Alex Chiasson and a couple of prospects.

"Murray has not made any public statement about the illness."
