Murray dished out an assist in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Flyers.
Murray has been surprisingly productive over the past month, registering nine assists in his last 17 games and three in the last five. He's still without a goal through 42 games with the Devils, so fantasy managers in search of offense can probably overlook Murray outside the deepest of leagues.
Murray notched three assists in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Capitals.
The blueliner set up a goal for the Devils in every period, extending his point streak to three games in the process. Murray had an awful start to his first campaign in New Jersey but is finally heating up, and he has 10 points (all helpers) through 28 games -- with six of those assists coming during his scoring streak.
Murray recorded two assists and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Bruins.
Murray's best performance of the season went to waste, as New Jersey blew a two-goal lead in the third period. The 27-year-old blueliner's first multi-point performance raised his season point total to six, all assists. To Murray's credit, he actually has a plus-3 rating, which is tied for third-best on the underwhelming Devils team. That's a nice feather in his cap but not a reason to target Murray in the fantasy realm.
Murray had one shot, one blocked shot and a minus-1 rating in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals.
This was a typical stat line for the third-pairing defenseman, who has just four assists without a goal in 23 games this season. It's safe to say a change of scenery from Columbus to New Jersey has done nothing to reinvigorate Murray's career, as the oft-injured second overall pick from the 2012 draft simply isn't an impact player.
Murray was a healthy scratch for Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.
This is a bit of a surprise, and head coach Lindy Ruff didn't provide much detail about this decision. The 27-year-old doesn't have much offensive upside -- he's recorded just two points through 12 games this year -- but he is typically a solid defensive presence. He'll aim to get back in the lineup for Sunday's rematch versus the Caps.
Murray (undisclosed) won't play in Saturday's game versus the Capitals, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Murray didn't practice Friday, indicating that this could be more than just a healthy scratch. It's nevertheless unclear what he's dealing with. The 27-year-old's absence mainly hurts the Devils in the defensive zone.
Murray (illness) will be available for Saturday's matchup with the Sabres, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Murray has missed New Jersey's last two contests with an illness, but he should return to the lineup Saturday. He's picked up two assists through nine games this season.
Murray (illness) won't play Thursday against the Bruins, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
Murray's continued absence will test the Devils' depth at defense, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only picked up two assists through nine games this campaign. Another update on the former Blue Jackets' status should be released once he's cleared to rejoin the lineup.
Murray is dealing with an illness and will not play Tuesday against the Rangers.
Murray hasn't been added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocol, and it's ultimately unclear what type of illness the blueliner is dealing with. Nonetheless, he'll sit out his first game of the season and look to return as early as Thursday in Boston.
Murray dished out an assist in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Flyers.
Murray finally got his first point as a member of the Devils in his seventh game with the team, assisting on Damon Severson's first-period goal. The offseason trade acquisition is playing top-pairing minutes in New Jersey, but Murray's focus is primarily defensive -- he has just five shots to go with one point through seven games.
Murray was traded to New Jersey by Columbus in exchange for a 2021 fifth-round pick Thursday, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports.
Murray was the second overall pick in the 2012 draft, but he never really grew into the player Columbus thought he would become. Dealing with plenty of injuries in his career, Murray was limited to just 27 NHL games last season, supplying two goals and nine points in that span. The Devils will pick up all of Murray's $4.6 million cap hit for next season, with Murray set to hit free agency following the 2020-21 campaign.
Murray (undisclosed) was back on the ice for Monday's practice session.
Given his injury history, Murray's absence from practice no doubt raised red flags for the Jackets faithful. The blueliner figures to take on a third-pairing role with Dean Kukan, which will likely limit his ice time and leave him as a mid-range fantasy option at best.
Murray (undisclosed) was unable to practice Friday, Mark Scheig of The Hockey Writers reports.
Murray has been plagued by injuries over the past four seasons, so this may just be a case of a team managing an injury-prone players workload. The 26-year-old blueliner picked up nine points in 27 games during the regular season.
Murray (undisclosed) was back on the ice for Thursday's training camp session, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
Murray appears to have simply taken a maintenance day Wednesday and was able to rejoin his teammates. The 26-year-old blueliner played in just 27 games due to injury this season, so fantasy players will want to keep monitoring him for any extended absences.
Murray was missing from Wednesday's practice session, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Murray may just be taking a maintenance day but the league's policy on injuries will prevent the team from providing any additional details. If the blueliner misses any significant time, Scott Harrington figures to be the next man up for the play-in series matchup with Toronto.
Murray (undisclosed) will play in Sunday's road contest against Vancouver, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Murray was in the lineup for two games after missing the prior 34 contests before he suffered another injury. Fortunately, this injury only cost him one game this time. The 6-foot-1 blueliner has nine points in 26 games this season.
Per coach John Tortorella, Murray is "nicked up" and will miss Saturday's game in Edmonton, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
The oft-injured Murray has been back for two games after being out since Dec. 14, and now he'll be back out of the lineup, at least for one game. Tortorella didn't reveal the nature of Murray's injury, so it's unclear if this is related to the back injury that sidelined Murray long-term earlier this season. Markus Nutivaara will re-enter the lineup in Murray's stead.
Murray posted two assists -- one on the power play -- and three blocked shots across 20:28 in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Canucks.
Murray finally got back into the lineup after missing 34 games with a back injury. It took him a bit to get going, but he notched a primary assist on Riley Nash's goal in the third period and had a secondary helper on Emil Bemstrom's game-winner with 1:37 left in regulation. Murray now has nine points through 25 games this season, and his presence in the lineup will be necessary if the Blue Jackets want to make a playoff push with Seth Jones (ankle) out of the lineup.
Murray (back) will be activated from IR and play in Sunday's game against the Canucks, Blue Jackets team reporter Jeff Svoboda reports.
Murray hasn't played since Dec. 14 due to a back injury, but he'll re-join the lineup for Sunday's cross-conference clash. He's expected to work with Markus Nutivaara on the second pairing, and Murray's return is a big boost because the Blue Jackets are without Seth Jones (ankle) until April at the earliest.
Murray (back) was able to skate with assistant coach Kenny McCudden on Tuesday, Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reports.
The defenseman has been out of action since Dec. 14, but he appears to be making progress. The Jackets still don't have a firm timetable for when Murray might rejoin the lineup, but given how the team is playing right now (18-2-5 in its last 25 games), there's no rush to get the 26-year-old back on the ice.
