RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Ranked second of three goaltending prospects, between Tristan Jarry and Eric Hartzell respectively, Murray compiled a 32-11-6 record for OHL Sault Ste. Marie last year, fashioning a 2.57 GAA and .921 save percentage. The 20-year-old will get his first taste of pro action in the fall with Wilkes-Barre, Pittsburgh's AHL affiliate. Given that starter Marc-Andre Fleury is in the final season of a five-year contract, there could be a goaltending opening in the next couple seasons. A strong start in the AHL could push Murray up the depth charts in a hurry, though it's still a long shot he sees time inside Consol Energy Center in 2014-15.
