Season Ending Surgery For Ryan Murray

COLUMBUS, OHIO – Columbus Blue Jackets Executive Vice President and General Manager Scott Howson announced today that defenseman Ryan Murray will undergo surgery on his injured shoulder in the next two to three weeks and will be sidelined approximately six months.  Murray, the captain of the Western Hockey League’s Everett Silvertips, was injured on November 16 in a game against the Victoria Royals.

Murray, 19, was the Blue Jackets’ first pick, second overall, in the 2012 NHL Draft.  In 23 games with Everett this season, he had collected two goals and 15 assists for 17 points with 14 penalty minutes.   In 191 WHL games, he has registered 22-99-121 with 121 penalty minutes and a +51 plus/minus rating.  He also helped Canada capture a bronze medal at the 2012 World Junior Championships and was expected to represent his country at this year’s tournament in Russia.
