      Analysis: Douglas Murray tried out with the Flames last spring when Mark Giordano and Ladislav Smid suffered season-ending injuries, but he didn't stand out enough in his audition to come away with a roster spot in hand. With both Giordano and Smid healthy for training camp and Dougie Hamilton added to the team's deep blue-line ranks over the summer, it's difficult to envision a scenario where Murray earns an Opening Night roster spot.
    • Flames, Murray Part Ways

      News: Douglas Murray's tryout offer with the Flames was terminated Wednesday.
      Analysis: The organization's concern about its blue line depth prompted the team to bring Douglas Murray in for a look, but management came to the conclusion that the 35-year-old wasn't a fit for the Flames. Murray, who skated in 53 games for the Canadiens in 2013-14, may not have many opportunities left to find work in the NHL.
    • Flames Extend Tryout Offer To Murray

      News: Douglas Murray agreed to a professional tryout offer with the Flames on Friday, Pat Steinberg of reports.

While he wouldn't be eligible for the postseason should the Flames ink him to a contract, Murray could potentially provide a depth option to help keep the team's blue line fresh during the stretch run. The 35-year-old has spent this season with German squad Kolner Haie, posting one assist in eight games before opting out of his contract.
