Amateur careerEdit

Murray played part of three seasons (1977–1980) with the St. Albert Saints of the Alberta Junior Hockey League. Also played briefly (two games in 1980) with the Lethbridge Broncos of the Western Hockey League. In two seasons at North Dakota, he was twice named to the Western Collegiate Hockey Association Second Team All-Stars. He led North Dakota in scoring as a freshman and helped capture a national championship as a sophomore.

Murray was captain of the 1982 Canadian junior national team, the first Canadian team to win a gold medal at World Junior Championships.

Professional careerEdit

Murray was drafted out of the University of North Dakota by the Chicago Blackhawks with the 57th overall selection in the 3rd Round of the 1980 NHL Entry Draft. He made his National Hockey League debut in the 1981–82 season playoffs on April 4, 1982, against the Minnesota North Stars.

During his fifteen year NHL career, he played for the Chicago Blackhawks twice (1981–1991, 1992–1994), Winnipeg Jets, Ottawa Senators, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Colorado Avalanche. During the 1985–86 NHL season, Murray won the Selke Trophy as the NHL's top defensive forward, and set career highs in goals (45), assists (54), and points (99). He won a Stanley Cup in 1996 with the Colorado Avalanche.

Murray finished his career scoring 230 goals and 354 assists in 915 career NHL games. Murray played in twelve seasons with the Blackhawks, and ranks 14th on the Blackhawks all-time assists list with 291, 15th on the all-time points list with 488, and 18th all-time in goals with 197 (through the 2005–06 NHL season).
