The Ottawa Senators have shut down their search for a president of hockey operations until at least the end of this season, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reports.

Friedman added it was unclear whether the club would resume its search.

Back in March, the team said it intended to make the hire "to support and provide guidance" to general manager Pierre Dorion while filling the void left by the late Bryan Murray.

The team also said at the time that the potential new hire wouldn't threaten Dorion's position.

Murray, the club's former general manager and head coach, died of cancer in August 2017. He stepped down as GM in April 2016, and Dorion took over the role with Murray staying on as a senior advisor until his death.
