Senators' Matt Murray: Exposed to Kraken
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (lower body) was not protected by the Senators ahead of Wednesday's Expansion Draft.

The two-time Stanley Cup winner was atrocious in his debut campaign with Ottawa, posting a 3.38 GAA and .893 save percentage in 27 appearances. Murray has three years left on his current contract, but with a cap hit of $6.25 million, it's unclear if the remaining term will be enough to make up for his recent struggles and associated disproportionate salary.

Senators' Matt Murray: Likely to remain No. 1 goalie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray had a disappointing first season in Ottawa and will look to rebound after a lower-body injury ended his season.

The question with Murray is whether he'll remain in Ottawa or get picked by Seattle in the expansion draft. At this point, it's unclear if the Senators will protect Murray or hope that his $6.25 million cap hit will be enough to dissuade the Kraken from selecting him.

Senators' Matt Murray: Won't return this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (lower body) won't be available for Wednesday's season finale versus the Maple Leafs, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

Murray will miss an eighth straight game Wednesday due to his lower-body issue, but at this point there's no reason to believe he won't be fully recovered in time for next campaign's training camp. The 26-year-old netminder will finish a somewhat disappointing first season with the Senators during which he posted a 10-13-1 record while registering a sub-par 3.38 GAA and .893 save percentage in 27 appearances.

Senators' Matt Murray: Could still return this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach DJ Smith is hopeful Murray (lower body) will be able to get a few games in before the end of the season, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

It's safe to assume Murray will be sidelined for at least another week, but the fact that he may still get a few games in before the campaign comes to an end is nonetheless an encouraging development. Marcus Hogberg will continue to serve as the Senators' No. 1 netminder until Murray is given the green light to return.

Senators' Matt Murray: Out Monday, likely longer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (lower body) won't play Monday against the Canucks and could be "out a little bit longer," Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Murray was injured Saturday against Vancouver and will miss Monday's rematch as a result. He hasn't been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Canucks at this point, but it sounds like Murray's absence will likely linger beyond just Monday's game. With Anton Forsberg (lower body) also out Monday, Marcus Hogberg will man the road crease in Vancouver.

Senators' Matt Murray: Dealing with lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (lower body) will not return to Saturday's game versus the Canucks.

The nature of Murray's injury wasn't known until the Senators' announcement that he would not return for the third period. The 26-year-old should be considered day-to-day ahead Monday's home game versus the Canucks.

Senators' Matt Murray: Exits after collision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (undisclosed) left Saturday's game versus the Canucks after a collision with Jake Virtanen, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Murray, who was filling in for Anton Forsberg (lower body), got hurt in the second period. It's not a great situation for the Senators, who are down to the last healthy goalie on their roster. Marcus Hogberg replaced Murray in goal.

Senators' Matt Murray: Surprise start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray led the Senators onto the ice and is expected to start Saturday's road game in Vancouver, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports.

A previous report indicated Anton Forsberg would start Saturday's game, but Forsberg didn't take the ice during warmups. Murray has two shutouts in his last three games, including a 3-0 win over the Canucks on Thursday. He's running hot and could help in fantasy.

Senators' Matt Murray: Second shutout in three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray posted a 31-save shutout in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Canucks.

Murray was lights-out again in his third straight win, and he picked up his second shutout in that span. The 26-year-old has allowed just five goals in four games since he returned from an upper-body injury. He has a 10-13-1 record with a 3.39 GAA and an .892 save percentage in 26 outings, but his performance is trending in the right direction.

April 22, 2021 09:52 PM
Senators' Matt Murray: Starting in Vancouver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray will patrol the road crease in Thursday's game against the Canucks, per the NHL's roster report.

Murray has been strong in net across his past three starts, going 2-1-0 along with a 1.68 GAA and .942 save percentage over that span. The veteran has struggled against Vancouver this season, surrendering 11 goals in just two starts. Murray will draw a decent matchup against a Canucks offense that sits 22nd in the league in goals per game this campaign (2.65).

Senators' Matt Murray: Holds off Flames on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray stopped 26 of 28 shots in Monday's 4-2 win over the Flames.

The Senators continued to have the Flames' number, with Murray providing solid goaltending in this latest win. The 26-year-old improved to 9-13-1 with a 3.55 GAA and an .888 save percentage in 25 appearances. He's allowed just five goals on 86 shots in three games since he returned from an upper-body injury.

Senators' Matt Murray: Tending twine Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray will patrol the crease in Monday's road contest against the Flames, Ian Mendes of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

Murray will make his third straight start after missing 14 games with an upper-body injury. In his last outing, the 26-year-old recorded his first shutout of the season, stopping all 23 shots in Montreal. Still, he owns a brutal .886 save percentage and 3.62 GAA in 24 games this season. Murray is 3-2-0 while allowing 15 goals on 136 shots in five games against Calgary on the year.

April 17, 2021 09:52 PM
Senators' Matt Murray: First shutout this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray made 23 saves in a 4-0 win over Montreal on Saturday.

It was his first shutout this season and first since Oct. 26. 2019, when he was with the Penguins. This was Murray's second game back after a long absence due to an upper-body injury. It sure didn't take long for him to shake off the rust.

Senators' Matt Murray: Defending net Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray will defend the road goal in Saturday's game versus the Canadiens, per the NHL's official media site.

Murray will make a second straight start, as he allowed three goals on 35 shots during Wednesday's loss to the Jets. The 26-year-old has struggled during his first season in Ottawa, posting an .882 save percentage, a 3.80 GAA and a 7-13-1 record. The Canadiens' offense has been lethartic lately, as they've totaled 11 goals over their last six outings en route to a 2-4-0 record.

Senators' Matt Murray: Downed in return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray stopped 32 of 35 shots Wednesday in a 3-2 loss to Winnipeg.

Murray, who was out for an extended absence with an upper-body injury, was making his first appearance since March 10. He performed fairly well -- all three Winnipeg goals were snipes from high-danger areas -- but ultimately dropped to 7-13-1 on the year with a 3.80 GAA and .882 save percentage.

Senators' Matt Murray: Gets starting nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray will patrol the crease during Wednesday's home matchup with Winnipeg, Steve Lloyd of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

Murray hasn't seen game action since March 10 against the Oilers due to an upper-body injury, so he'll likely have some rust to shake off early on against the Jets. The 26-year-old netminder will attempt to pick up his eighth win of the season in a tough home matchup with a Winnipeg squad that's 14-8-1 on the road this year.

Senators' Matt Murray: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (upper body) has been activated off injured reserve ahead of Thursday's matchup with Montreal.

The Senators have yet to announce a starter, but Murray could be between the pipes for Thursday night's clash with the Canadiens. The 26-year-old backstop has been sidelined since March 10 with an upper-body injury.

March 31, 2021 12:04 PM
Senators' Matt Murray: Hasn't been cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (upper body) has yet to be cleared to play, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Murray has been practicing since Monday, but he evidently still isn't ready for game action ahead of Thursday's matchup with Montreal. Filip Gustavsson will continue to serve as Ottawa's No. 1 netminder until Murray is ready to rock.

March 29, 2021 03:28 PM
Senators' Matt Murray: Practicing again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (upper body) participated in Monday's practice, Matt Tidcombe of the Senators' official site reports.

Murray said he felt "really good" about Monday's session, calling it a "full practice." The 26-year-old is considered day-to-day for the time being. There's a chance that he'll be ready for Thursday's game versus the Canadiens. Until he gains clearance, Filip Gustavsson and Anton Forsberg should hold down the fort in net.

March 23, 2021 03:20 AM
Senators' Matt Murray: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Monday, CapFriendly reports.

Murray has already missed the last five games, so he'll be eligible to return to the active roster once he's healthy. The team announced that he was dealing with a week-to-week injury, but he doesn't seem to have a clear timetable right now.
