Senators to honour late Bryan Murray with helmet decal

The Ottawa Senators will honour the late Bryan Murray with a special helmet decal.

Murray’s initials are at the centre of the sticker, with “family man, friend, coach and mentor” written around the circle. Murray passed away in August at the age of 74 after suffering from colon cancer.

Murray served as coach of the Senators from 2005-08 and filled the general manager role from 2007-16. He won the Jack Adams Award as the NHL’s top coach in 1984 with the Washington Capitals.

Ottawa kicks off its season Thursday, playing host to none other than the Capitals.
