Ryan Murray


Should the Attempt to Re-Sign Ryan Murray?

The New Jersey Devils spent part of last offseason attempting to fix a position that has been a weakness for some time now: their defense. With only P.K. Subban and Damon Severson returning as regulars from 2019-20 (I’m not counting Will Butcher because he didn’t really “return” in 2021), the Devils made four moves to try and create a solid core:

Ryan Murray focused on final stretch of Devils season

Ryan Murray joined the Devils in October 2020 as the Columbus Blue Jackets were clearing salary cap space. Murray was halfway through a guaranteed two-year contract worth $9.2 million when he was dealt to New Jersey. Now, Murray is in the final week of that deal and will be among the top defenseman on the free agent market during the offseason.

Devils' Ryan Murray: Bags another apple

Murray dished out an assist in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Flyers. Murray has been surprisingly productive over the past month, registering nine assists in his last 17 games and three in the last five. He's still without a goal through 42 games with the Devils, so fantasy managers in search of offense can probably overlook Murray outside the deepest of leagues.

Devils' Ryan Murray: Stuck on four points

Murray had one shot, one blocked shot and a minus-1 rating in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals. This was a typical stat line for the third-pairing defenseman, who has just four assists without a goal in 23 games this season. It's safe to say a change of scenery from Columbus to New Jersey has done nothing to reinvigorate Murray's career, as the oft-injured second overall pick from the 2012 draft simply isn't an impact player.

New Jersey Devils: 5 Teams That Should Be In On Ryan Murray

The New Jersey Devils have had some major defensive issues for most of the season, but they still have multiple defensemen that could be desirable on the trade market. Dmitry Kulikov, Sami Vatanen, and even P.K. Subban have been mentioned in trade talks. However, the one that seems to be tied to the most teams is left-handed defenseman Ryan Murray.

Devils' Ryan Murray: Sat out as healthy scratch

Murray was a healthy scratch for Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals, Corey Masisak of The Athletic reports. This is a bit of a surprise, and head coach Lindy Ruff didn't provide much detail about this decision. The 27-year-old doesn't have much offensive upside -- he's recorded just two points through 12 games this year -- but he is typically a solid defensive presence. He'll aim to get back in the lineup for Sunday's rematch versus the Caps.

Devils' Ryan Murray: Out for Saturday's game

Murray (undisclosed) won't play in Saturday's game versus the Capitals, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports. Murray didn't practice Friday, indicating that this could be more than just a healthy scratch. It's nevertheless unclear what he's dealing with. The 27-year-old's absence mainly hurts the Devils in the defensive zone.

Devils' Ryan Murray: Ready to return

Murray (illness) will be available for Saturday's matchup with the Sabres, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports. Murray has missed New Jersey's last two contests with an illness, but he should return to the lineup Saturday. He's picked up two assists through nine games this season.

Devils' Ryan Murray: Remains unavailable

Murray (illness) won't play Thursday against the Bruins, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports. Murray's continued absence will test the Devils' depth at defense, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only picked up two assists through nine games this campaign. Another update on the former Blue Jackets' status should be released once he's cleared to rejoin the lineup.

Devils' Ryan Murray: Scores first point with NJ

Murray dished out an assist in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Flyers. Murray finally got his first point as a member of the Devils in his seventh game with the team, assisting on Damon Severson's first-period goal. The offseason trade acquisition is playing top-pairing minutes in New Jersey, but Murray's focus is primarily defensive -- he has just five shots to go with one point through seven games.

New Jersey Devils: Ryan Murray is the ideal reclamation project

Acquiring Ryan Murray is a no-lose move by the New Jersey Devils. In hockey circles in the great state of Ohio, Ryan Murray will forever be known as a bust. Unfair? Eh, maybe a little bit, but what else do you expect when a franchise takes a ‘can’t-miss defenseman’ second overall, especially when players like Mathew Dumba and Morgan Rielly have significantly outperformed the Everett Silvertips prospect.
