Blue Jackets' Ryan Murray to miss rest of regular season
Mon, 10 Mar 2014 21:02:13 +0000
Columbus, OH, United States (4E Sports) - The Columbus Blue Jackets announced that rookie defenseman Ryan Murray will miss the rest of the regular season after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.
Coach Todd Richards said the 20-year-old Murray will miss four to six weeks.
"He's a young kid, so it's something he'll be able to get over. He still has a long career ahead of him," Richards said. "The impact right now … it's a big impact. He was a real, real bright spot for us all year."
Murray was injured on Monday in a 2-1 victory at Toronto when his leg was pinned against the wall awkwardly when he was checked.
"It's so disappointing, for him and for us," right wing R.J. Umberger said. "I know he wants to be a part of this. For us, he was just such a constant back there. You never had to worry about him."
Murray was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 draft. He has three goals, 17 assists and a plus-3 rating in 61 games this season and ranks fourth on the club in ice time (19 minutes, 48 seconds per game).
If the Blue Jackets reach the Stanley Cup playoffs, and if Murray returns in six weeks, he could be ready late in the first round or early in the second round.
