Murray

Murray is smaller in stature, so he isn’t a looming or aggressive defender, but he is sneaky and annoying. He’s a pest defensively because he is seemingly always in solid position to block lanes, apply pressure, stay between the puck carrier and the net, and wait for you to make a mistake.

Murray is smaller in stature, so he isn’t a looming or aggressive defender, but he is sneaky and annoying. He’s a pest defensively because he is seemingly always in solid position to block lanes, apply pressure, stay between the puck carrier and the net, and wait for you to make a mistake. The structure to his game is evident, and although not flashy, he’s got skill-stacking capability and can make plays in motion, using his ability to skate or move the puck to break pucks out of the zone. He keeps his hands in good position to always make a play, and even when opponents get in on him he’s effective at shifting his body to keep his space and make a play. He’s got a good first touch on the puck and does try to make more complex plays from time to time, often showing a good understanding and intent, but execution can falter at times. He works off teammates well and shows good understanding of where to support pucks, when to offer himself as a safety valve by widening the ice, and when to press up ice equal to the rush or as a trailing option. His agility in all three zones allows him to adjust to the movement of a play and maintain positive spacing for puck movement. He’s often never skating at a standstill, unless he’s along the boards trying to keep the zone. Anticipates zone penetration well, which allows him to clog lanes and react to shifty forwards. His stride is fluid and his edgework is quick, but there isn’t anything more than average power or acceleration. He’s smart enough to close gaps and apply both physical and stick pressure, but struggles a bit when limiting the space of opposing players. If he could add some explosiveness in his stride it would help him a lot. His biggest strengths lie in his pace, puck control, and his ability to get pucks through traffic.
