Senators move Dorion to GM and make Murray an advisor, no word yet on coach firing


The Ottawa Senators might do more than just the expected in firing head coach Dave Cameron.

There could also be some tweaks higher up the chain, as the Senators are likely to announce an executive tweak: Pierre Dorion may take the mantle of GM while Bryan Murray would be moved to an advisory role, according to the Ottawa Citizen’s Bruce Garrioch.

Update: The Senators made the GM tweak official.

Garrioch runs down Dorion’s credentials:

Dorion, an Ottawa native, is in his ninth season with the Senators and has spent 20 years working in the NHL.

He was the club’s director of player personnel before being elevated to the position of assistant GM along with Randy Lee in 2014. Lee will stay in his role as assistant GM and you can expect that his duties will be expanded.

As far as Cameron goes … it sounds like we’ll have to wait.
