A pair of goaltending careers were two of the many Bryan Murray molded over his 35 years in hockey.

Following the news of Murray’s death Saturday, Ottawa Senators netminder Craig Anderson took to Twitter to express his condolences, and to thank the former Senators general manager for believing in him:

Philadelphia Flyers goalie Brian Elliott, who was drafted by the Senators in 2003 and played his first three seasons in Ottawa, thanked Murray for making his NHL dream a reality:

Anderson and Elliott were among the many from hockey circles who mourned Murray’s loss:

The longtime executive had a decorated NHL career, serving as coach and GM of the Detroit Red Wings, Florida Panthers, Anaheim Ducks, and Senators. He got his start in hockey in 1981 as coach of the Washington Capitals.

Murray died Saturday following a three-year battle with colon cancer. He was 74.
