Senators' Matt Murray: Will be ready for camp
Murray (concussion) will be available for the start of training camp in the fall, general manager Pierre Dorion told reporters Wednesday, per Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun.
Murray missed the final 28 games of the season while recovering from his concussion but is expected to be good to go for 2022-23. In 20 appearances this year, the 28-year-old netminder went 5-12-2 with a 3.05 GAA and one shutout. His poor performance even led to a stint in the minors. As such, it's hard to determine where Murray fits into the lineup next season as he will likely be in a competition for the starting job with Anton Forsberg.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Matt Murray: Injury clarified
Murray is dealing with post-concussion syndrome and won't play for Team Canada at the upcoming IIHF World Championship, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Although Murray's still in recovery mode, he expects to be back to 100 percent in time for next season's training camp. The 27-year-old netminder went 5-12-2 while posting a 3.05 GAA and a .906 save percentage through 20 appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Matt Murray: Won't return this season
Murray (upper body) will miss the final three games of the campaign, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
Murray will finish the campaign having gone 5-12-2 while posting a 3.05 GAA and a .906 save percentage through 20 appearances. The 27-year-old netminder struggled for long stretches this year and even spent some time in the AHL, so there's no guarantee he'll enter the 2022-23 campaign as Ottawa's No. 1 option in goal despite his $6.25 million annual salary....

Senators' Matt Murray: May be shut down for season
Murray (upper body) could miss the remainder of the 2021-22 campaign, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
With roughly six weeks remaining on the year and Murray not even back skating yet, it certainly doesn't seem like he will play again this year. If it does mark the end of his campaign, the 27-year-old netminder will end 2021-22 having played in just 20 games, his lowest since his rookie season back in 2015-16, in which he went 5-12-2 with a 3.05 GAA. In the meantime, Anton Forsberg and Filip Gustavsson figure to continue splitting the workload.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Matt Murray: Not close to returning
According to coach D.J. Smith, Murray (upper body) "isn't close" to returning, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
Murray isn't skating and it appears as though he's likely facing a long-term absence. Anton Forsberg and Filip Gustavsson will operate as the Senators' top-two netminders until Murray, who's gone 5-12-2 while posting a 3.05 GAA and a .906 save percentage through 20 appearances, is cleared to return....

Senators' Matt Murray: Crushed by Coyotes
Murray made 23 saves in Saturday's 8-5 loss to the Coyotes.
It was a brutal performance from the Senators' netminder, as he allowed multiple goals in every period and dug a 4-0 hole before Ottawa had even gotten on the board. Murray has lost six straight starts, and after this effort his GAA has soared back up to 3.05, to go along with a .906 save percentage.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Matt Murray: Blasted by Lightning

Senators' Matt Murray: Plays well but can't buy win
Murray made 30 saves in a 2-1 loss to Montreal on Saturday.
The Sens played the game with five defenders and 13 forwards, and they just didn't get out of their own zone enough to give Murray and the D a break. He is now 0-4 in his last four starts, but the losses weren't on him -- he has a .940 save percentage across those four losses.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Matt Murray: Gets starting nod
Murray (undisclosed) will guard the home goal during Saturday's matchup with the Canadiens, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.
Murray was a little shaky in his last start Feb. 15 versus the Blues, surrendering four goals on 31 shots en route to a 5-2 defeat. He'll try to snap his personal three-game losing streak in a favorable home matchup with a Montreal team that's 4-16-6 on the road this year.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Matt Murray: Ruled out Tuesday
Murray (undisclosed) will not be in action against the Wild on Tuesday following the birth of his child.
Murray had been previously dealing with an undisclosed injury that kept him out of action for the Senators' previous three contests but was expected back between the pipes Tuesday. Instead, Anton Forsberg figures to get the starting nod while Filip Gustavsson was elevated from AHL Belleville to serve as the backup.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Matt Murray: Not returning Saturday or Sunday
Murray (undisclosed) will not play in Saturday's contest against the Bruins and Sunday's tilt versus the Rangers, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Murray is expected to return for Tuesday's game against Minnesota at the earliest, Garroich adds. The 27-year-old has gone 5-3-2 with a 2.01 GAA and .942 save percentage over his last 10 appearances.

Murray has gone 2-3-0 with a 2.07 GAA and .945 save percentage over his last five appearances. The 27-year-old may receive an opportunity to break his current three-game losing streak in either Saturday's game against Boston or Sunday's tilt versus the Rangers.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Matt Murray: Between pipes Tuesday
Murray will protect the home goal Tuesday versus the Blues, per TSN 1200 Ottawa.
Murray has lost his last two starts, though he's allowed just three goals on 80 shots while receiving no help from his teammates in that span. It doesn't get easier Tuesday against a Blues' offense that has scored 19 goals in its last six games. Murray will be a risky play in fantasy based on the matchup.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Matt Murray: Won't travel with team
Murray (undisclosed) won't make the trip to Buffalo for Thursday's game versus the Sabres, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
The Senators have yet to release an expected timetable for Murray's return, but he'll miss at least one contest with the undisclosed injury he suffered during Tuesday's loss to St. Louis. Anton Forsberg (illness) is also iffy for Thursday's contest, so Ottawa may need to recall yet another goaltender to pair with Filip Gustavsson against Buffalo.... See More ... See Less

Senators' Matt Murray: Gets little help in loss
Murray made 35 saves Saturday in a 2-0 loss to the Bruins.
This loss was not on Murray. Not only were the Sens shut out for the second straight game, but the skaters started the game asleep. The Bruins turned up the pressure from the opening faceoff and scored on a rebound 45 seconds into the game. Another rebound from the top of the crease at the 13:26 mark of the first finished the scoring. Murray has played well of late, but he can't do it all. Ottawa hasn't scored since Chris Tierney lit the lamp at the 2:54 mark of the second period of a 4-3 win over Carolina on Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
