OTTAWA -- Ottawa Senators general manager and president of hockey operations Bryan Murray can be seen on an almost daily basis working the hallways, offices and stands at the Canadian Tire Centre, consulting with his staff, talking to his players and dealing with the media.
Sixteen months after the 72-year-old was diagnosed with terminal colon cancer which had spread to his liver and lungs, Murray is holding his own in his battle and he said showing up for work has been a big weapon for him.
"I've just had scans and I've been told everything is fairly stable," Murray said. "It's not growing, it's not shrinking, it's pretty much where it was. The chemo plus the other stuff I'm doing seems to have, at least for now, some control over the growth."
The Senators host the Calgary Flames on Wednesday in their Hockey Fights Cancer Night game (7:30 p.m., ET; TVA Sports, SN1).
