Ryan Murray Wikipedia
Ryan James Murray (born September 27, 1993) is a Canadian ice hockey defenceman who is currently playing for the Columbus Blue Jackets of the NHL.
Murray was drafted 9th overall by the Everett Silvertips at the 2008 WHL Bantam Draft. He was later named captain of his team at only eighteen years of age. On June 22, 2012, he was chosen second overall by the Columbus Blue Jackets at the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
On November 16, 2012, Murray injured his shoulder during a game with the Silvertips. He would later undergo shoulder surgery and miss the rest of the WHL season (also making him unavailable for NHL play).
Murray played his first NHL game on October 4, 2013 versus Calgary Flames. He scored his first NHL goal on October 25, 2013 against Jonathan Bernier of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Murray has missed a significant amount of time due to injuries.
Murray participated at the 2012 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships held in Calgary and Edmonton and won the bronze medal.
In 2012, Murray became the first draft eligible player to represent Team Canada at the World Championship in many years. Murray became the second youngest Team Canada player to play in the tournament (the youngest was Paul Kariya in 1993). Four years later, Murray again played for Canada, winning gold at the 2016 World Championship.2011 IIHF World U18 Championships – First Team All-Star
