Former hockey executive and coach Bryan Murray passed away Saturday morning at the age of 74. Murray worked in the National Hockey League in some capacity for 35 consecutive seasons, making far more friends than enemies along the way.

"Bryan Murray's strength and character were reflected in the teams he coached and the teams he built over decades of front-office excellence", NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said. Under his leadership, the Capitals saw the playoffs for the first time in franchise history. Prior to the 2016 season, he stepped down as Senators GM to take on an advisory role in the organization during his treatment. Murray led the Senators to the 2007 Stanley Cup finals, where they lost in five games to the Anaheim Ducks.

Murray also coached the team for a time.

In 1998, South Florida coaches Jimmy Johnson, Pat Riley, Jim Leyland and Bryan Murray stand together with 10-year-old Michael Fernandez at the fifth annual Make-a-Wish Foundation of South Florida Sports Banquet & Memorabilia Auction at the Signature Grand in Davie. He also coached the Red Wings, Panthers, Ducks and Senators, the latter of which he guided to the Stanley Cup finals in 2007. "My gut tells me that Bryan Murray's the guy that's going to bring the Capitals out of their doldrums".

Murray was the head coach of the Bears in 1980-81, helping lead Hershey to a playoff appearance.

In Spain, Sport reports that the player has already reached an agreement with Barca on a five-year contract worth €10m a year.

Trading barbs with referees was a particular habit of Murray's, though it had a objective.

Things changed for good in 1982-83, the first season Murray was paired with General Manager David Poile.

Murray, who eventually made peace with the Panthers after he and his brother Terry were fired in 2000, died on Saturday after a long bout with colon cancer.

"My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Murray family", Senators captain Erik Karlsson tweeted. "You gave me the chance to be who I am today". When his fellow GMs honored him at their annual March meeting in 2015, nephew Tim Murray and others said they went to get a colonoscopy after learning about Bryan's diagnosis. "From that standpoint, he was tremendous. Touched a lot of lives". "While his warmth and dry sense of humour were always evident, they were accompanied by the fiery competitiveness and determination that were his trademarks".

Murray coached the Red Wings from 1990-93, compiling a 124-91-29 record and leading the Red Wings to the 1991-92 Norris Division championship. Bryan's contributions to the game of hockey were outstanding, from his impact in Washington to his more recent service as a senior hockey advisor with the Ottawa Senators.
