Glen Murray (born November 1, 1972) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey right winger who played 16 seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL) with the Boston Bruins, Pittsburgh Penguins and Los Angeles Kings.

Playing careerEdit

Murray was raised in the Bridgewater, Nova Scotia area and played junior hockey for the Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). Murray was a first-round draft pick, 18th overall by the Bruins in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft. He spent four seasons with the Bruins before being traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins with Bryan Smolinski for Kevin Stevens and Shawn McEachern. Murray's stay with the Penguins only lasted a little over a year and he was eventually on the move again; this time he was traded to Los Angeles Kings for Ed Olczyk. Murray enjoyed moderate success with the Kings, picking up some good numbers during his five-year stay, but on October 24, 2001, Murray would once again find himself in the middle of a trade. Murray was traded back to the Boston Bruins with Jozef Stümpel for Jason Allison and Mikko Eloranta.

Murray enjoyed his greatest offensive season in 2002–03, scoring 92 points (44 goals and 48 assists) for the Bruins and earning a spot in the 2003 NHL All-Star Game. On July 23, 2008, Murray was placed on waivers by the Bruins, and three days later, on July 26, the Bruins announced the buyout of Murray's contract to free up salary cap room.[1]

In November 2008, Murray had ankle surgery. Since Murray claims this is a result of an injury he sustained during play of the 2007–08 NHL season, his agent has filed a claim against the Boston Bruins.[2] This could nullify the original buyout, as the NHLPA does not allow a team to buy out an injured player. This is controversial, since Murray shopped himself to other teams during the 2008 off-season claiming to be "healthy", which could hurt his chances to win the claim, although whether or not this is because he was determined 'fit to play' by Bruins doctors on July 14 is another important issue in the grievance. If Murray wins the claim, he will be placed on LTIR (Long Term Injured Reserve) and receive his full $4.1 million this season instead of $1.38 million for each season for the 2008–09 and 2009–10 NHL seasons.

Personal lifeEdit

Murray and his wife Katie have three children.
