"While his warmth and dry sense of humor were always evident, they were accompanied by the fiery competitiveness and determination that were his trademarks". 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.

Along with coaching the Ducks (2001-02) and Ottawa (2005-08), Murray also helmed Washington (1981-89), Detroit (1990-93) and Florida (1997-98) as he compiled a 620-465-131-23 record in 1,239 games.

On January 24, Murray was inducted into the Senators Ring of Honour; he's also a member of the organization's Hall of Fame.

Murray is surived by his wife, Geri, and daughters Heide and Brittany.

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

It says a lot when such a wide variety of people share their thoughts on a person's life, and it's apparent that Murray made many great impressions during his decades of work in the sport.

"But there are very, very few that could combine all three". "He was behind the bench for the Bears in 1980-81 and quickly established himself as one of hockey's great coaches".

Among the National Hockey League executives Murray mentored is Minnesota Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher. 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. "He knows the X's and O's of the game of hockey really well and I don't think there's anyone who will dispute that". "He really loved just the daily interaction with the players, being on the ice, being behind the bench, setting the strategy for the game and how the team would play".

"We watch London play Plymouth in the playoffs and (Bryan Murray) watches Corey Perry". Unfortunately Murray and the Senators would fall to the Anaheim Ducks in five games and were unable to win Lord's Stanley after a dominating playoff run.

"The Anaheim Ducks family mourns the loss of Bryan Murray, who passed away this morning", the Ducks said in a statement. "As both head coach and general manager of the team (2001-04), Bryan led our organization with class, dignity and charisma". Murray posted a 124-91-29 record in three seasons as the team's head coach and captured a Norris Division title in 1991-92. "He will be forever remembered by all he touched". The following season Murray coached 13 games for the Bears before being promoted to the Washington Capitals' head coaching job, taking over for Gary Green.

"Bryan was one of the men, the most brilliant hockey has ever known". Bryan shaped the lives and careers of countless players.

The Capitals had not been to the playoffs in their first eight years of existence before making seven consecutive postseason trips under Murray.
