The Ottawa Senators would have an interest if former captain Daniel Alfredsson wanted to pursue a position within the organization, general manager Bryan Murray said Wednesday.

"[It] was good to see him around, good to be able to talk to him, he's a bright guy and I think down the road he'll make a decision whether he wants to be in hockey or not," Murray said, according to the Ottawa Sun. "He still hasn't made that decision, but very definitely if he was interested, we'd be interested in talking to him."

Alfredsson and his family attended the Senators' Game 6 loss to the Montreal Canadiens that eliminated them from the Eastern Conference First Round on Sunday.

OTTAWA -- Bryan Murray, who is battling Stage 4 colon cancer, said he will continue as general manager of the Ottawa Senators.

Murray, 72, will be entering his ninth season as Senators GM this fall. The Senators have made the Stanley Cup Playoffs in five of the eight seasons Murray has been in charge.

"I'm keeping going," he said Wednesday. "I've talked to the doctors, I've talked to my family, I talked to ownership, and if my health holds up and everything, I feel I can keep doing this job. It's better than sitting on the couch at home, I think."

Murray said he offered a contract extension to coach Dave Cameron on Monday, the day after the Senators were eliminated from the Eastern Conference First Round of the playoffs by the Montreal Canadiens in six games.

NASHVILLE -- Nashville Predators defenseman Shea Weber had surgery after he sustained a dislocated kneecap in Game 2 of the Western Conference First Round series against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Weber took a hit from Chicago forward Brandon Saad behind the Nashville net and struggled to get back to the bench. Weber said he knew right away that something was wrong.

"I felt something kind of pop a little bit, snap I guess," Weber said. "It was my kneecap that kind of subluxed, so I just felt that come across. I didn't know at the time exactly what it was, but I knew that's not good, that shouldn't happen. I tried to stand on it. Obviously, it was pretty bad pain in the knee."

Monday, 04.27.2015 / 3:55 PM / News

Marcel Pronovost, a Hockey Hall of Fame member who won the Stanley Cup five times as a player and three times as a scout, died Sunday. He was 84 years old.

Pronovost had 345 points in 1,206 games in 21 seasons as a defenseman with the Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs.

He won the Cup for the first time before he played a regular-season game. The Red Wings recalled him from their minor-league affiliate in Omaha during the 1950 Stanley Cup Playoffs to fill in when Red Kelly was moved from defense to forward to replace an injured Gordie Howe. Pronovost had one point in nine games as the Red Wings beat the Maple Leafs in the semifinals and the New York Rangers in the Cup Final.

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
