BostonBruins.com — The Boston Bruins were saddened to hear of the passing of former defenseman Murray Henderson on January 4.

A pilot for the R.C.A.F. during World War II, Henderson, whose Boston hockey career started with EHL Boston Olympics, manned the Garden's blue line for eight seasons (beginning from the 1944-45 season and into the 1951-52 campaign), played 405 games in Black & Gold and scored 24 goals, while adding 62 assists for 86 points.

Henderson joined the AHL's Hershey Bears for the 1952-53 season as a player/coach and spent four seasons in Pennsylvania before returning to his hometown of Toronto, Ontario where he worked in the liquor industry until his retirement in 1987.

Predeceased by his wife Kathryn, Murray was a loving father, brother and grandfather, and will be missed at the local NHL Oldtimers' Monday Luncheon Group and by his fans in Boston.
