The Ottawa Senators released a statement today that general manager Bryan Murray was recently diagnosed with cancer and will undergo further testing and treatment.
The type of cancer was not disclosed.
"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," the team said in its statement.
Sabres general manager Tim Murray is the nephew of Bryan Murray and served as assistant GM in Ottawa from 2007 until taking the job with Buffalo in January.
