Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Douglas Murray
Doug Murray was born March 12, 1980 in Bromma, Sweden. The eighth round, 241st overall selection of the San Jose Sharks in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, Murray is a graduate of the ECAC's Cornell Big Red.

A hulking defenseman, Murray played four years at Cornell registering 84 points (24-60-84) while capturing numerous honours, including; All-Ivy League First Team (2001), All-ECAC Championship Tournament team (2001), ECAC All-Conference First Team (2002), First Team All-Ivy League (2002), Ivy League Player-of-the-Year (2002), Division I All-America First-Team (2002), Hobey Baker Award finalist (2002), ECAC All-Tournament Team (2002) and NCAA Regional Championship All-Tournament Team (2002) amongst others.

Following an impressive collegiate career, Murray joined San Jose's AHL affiliate in Cleveland where he continued to hone his skills for the next two seasons before making his NHL debut during the 2005-06 season.

On the international stage, Murray represented his homeland at the 2008 World Championships as well as the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

In San Jose, Murray would grow to be a favourite among both fans and teammates and his solid, though unspectacular, defensive play made him a mainstay on the Sharks' blueline.

On March 25, 2013, Murray's time in San Jose would come to an end. The career Shark was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a pair of draft picks. Murray would appear in the final 14 regular season games and 15 playoff games for the Penguins, providing the club with a needed physical presence.

In the summer of 2013 Murray was on the move again. This time as an unrestricted free agent he inked a deal with the Montreal Canadiens.
