A Two-Year Extension For Ryan Murray In Columbus

COLUMBUS, OHIO -- The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed defenseman Ryan Murray to a two-year contract extension through the 2017-18 National Hockey League season, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today.

Murray, 22, has tallied four goals and 13 assists for 17 points with 32 penalty minutes in 55 games this season. He ranks third on the team in time on ice average (22:27) and is second among club defensemen in goals and points. He is one of three Blue Jackets – Boone Jenner and Gregory Campbell – to have played in every game this season.

“Ryan Murray is a talented, smart player who has been a very steady performer on our blue line and we are extremely happy to have this deal completed,” said Kekalainen. “Ryan has earned more ice time, showed steady improvement and contributed in all situations for us throughout the season. We look forward to his continued growth and development with our club.”
