Bryan Murray receives support from NHL community

The hockey community was dealt a blow on Thursday when it was revealed that the Ottawa Senators GM Bryan Murray has incurable Stage 4 colon cancer.

In an interview with TSN's Michael Farber, the 71-year-old told the hockey world about his prognosis. 

"There is no cure at this point for me," Murray said. 

Murray bravely shared his story in the hope that others could learn from it and be vigilant about their own health.

Like they have in the past when faced with tragic news, people from all across the NHL have responded with an outpouring of support.

Rivalries were placed aside, and it's been all love for a man facing one of life's most difficult battles.
