Senators name Pierre Dorion GM, Bryan Murray takes advisory role

The Ottawa Senators have wasted no time in shaking up the front office.

General manager Bryan Murray has announced he's stepping down as general manager, handing the reins to Pierre Dorion, who had been serving as assistant GM since 2014.

The news came less than than 24 hours after the Senators won their season finale and knocked Boston out of playoff contention.

Murray, who's engaged in an ongoing battle with Stage 4 colon cancer, has been contemplating such a move for over a year. He's served as Ottawa's GM since 2007, taking on the role shortly after coaching the team to a Stanley Cup Final appearance that spring.

Dorion becomes the eighth general manager after two years as an assistant and serving as the team's director of player personnel prior to that.
