Former Ottawa Senators coach and general manager Bryan Murray will be remembered next week at a public ceremony at Canadian Tire Centre.
Murray died Saturday at the age of 74 after a three-year long fight with colon cancer.
The celebration of life will take place Aug. 24 starting at 1 p.m.
Murray, a native of Shawville Quebec, worked in the NHL for 35 years, winning the Jack Adams award as the best NHL coach in 1984 while with the Washington Capitals.
As head coach he led the Senators the team to the Stanley Cup finals in 2007, becoming the team’s GM at the end of that season.
During his 35 years in the NHL, he coached 1,239 games over his NHL career, including 620 wins.
