Top Ryan Murray News

  • Oilers' Ryan Murray: Not close to returning

    Murray (back) is "weeks" away from rejoining the lineup, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports. The 29-year-old defender was also moved to long-term injured reserve Tuesday.

    Given his recovery timetable, we likely won't see Murray back in action until after the All-Star break. Either way, he's only picked up three helpers through 13 games this season, so fantasy managers shouldn't need to track his status.

  • Oilers' Ryan Murray: Placed on injured reserve

    Murray (back) was placed on injured reserve Friday, Daniel Nugent-Bowman of The Athletic reports.

    Murray last played Nov. 21 and has battled back problems his entire career. The Oilers needed to place someone on injured reserve as Ryan McLeod (high ankle sprain) was activated Friday. Murray has three assists in 13 games this season.

  • Oilers' Ryan Murray: Out for a month

    Murray (back) is expected to miss a month, Mark Spector of Sportsnet reported Sunday.

    Murray has already been out of the lineup for 14 straight games as of Monday's game versus the Predators, and a return is not on the horizon. The 29-year-old has battled back injuries in his past, so there's a fair possibility his absence could extend beyond a month if he has a tricky recovery. Markus Niemelainen figures to play on the third pairing with both Murray and Philip Broberg (ankle) unavailable, though Jason Demers could also be called up to fill a similar role.

  • Oilers' Ryan Murray: Helpers in consecutive contests

    Murray notched an assist and three hits in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Golden Knights.

    Murray has an assist in each of the last two games, giving him three on the year. He's added 11 hits, 12 blocked shots, eight shots on goal and a minus-4 rating through 12 appearances. He may still get scratched on occasion, but the newfound offense might help him stay in the lineup over Markus Niemelainen when the Oilers dress only six blueliners.

  • Oilers' Ryan Murray: Searching for more offense

    Murray earned his second assist this season during Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the visiting Kings.

    Murray, who had been held pointless for nine consecutive contests, earned his first helper since Oct. 15. The 29-year-old defenseman did the dirty work to get the Oilers on the board Wednesday. Murray denied Blake Lizotte's clearing attempt from exiting the offensive zone. Zach Hyman gained control and scored the Oilers' lone goal on a second-period backhander. Murray, the 2012 No. 2 overall draft pick, did not have a shot Wednesday for the fifth time in 11 outings.

  • Oilers' Ryan Murray: Gets first assist with new team

    Murray produced an assist, three hits and a minus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Flames.

    Murray set up Ryan McLeod's second-period tally to get the Oilers within one. The assist was Murray's first point as an Oiler in his second game with the team. The second overall pick from 2012 had just four helpers in 37 games with the Avalanche last year, and he's never reached the 30-point mark. The 29-year-old has played on the third pairing to begin his Edmonton career, so there's not a lot of fantasy upside here.

  • Oilers' Ryan Murray: Heading to Oilers

    The Oilers signed Murray to a one-year, $750,000 contract Friday.

    Murray had four assists in 37 games with Colorado last season while averaging 14:05 minutes. He didn't appear in any postseason contests during the Avalanche's run to a Stanley Cup championship. Injuries hampered him during his tenure with Colorado, but he also served in a limited role while healthy. Still, he's turning just 29 on Sept. 27 and he's played as a top-four defenseman at times in the past, so he's someone to keep an eye on going into the Oilers' training camp.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Murray: Medically cleared

    Murray (hand) has been deemed healthy enough to play ahead of Tuesday's Game 1 versus St. Louis, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Although Murray's recovered from his hand injury, he isn't expected to be in the lineup for Tuesday's clash with the Blues. It may take an injury for Murray to enter the lineup during Colorado's playoff run.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Murray: Still sidelined Thursday

    Murray (hand) remains out of action for Thursday's Game 2 versus the Predators, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Murray has missed 21 games in a row while recovering from a broken hand. There still isn't a clear timeline for his return, nor is he guaranteed a place in the lineup once he's available to play.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Murray: Not ready for Game 1

    Murray (hand) won't play Tuesday in Game 1 versus the Predators, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

    Murray is still awaiting medical clearance to return from a hand injury that cost him the last 19 games of the regular season. The defenseman is no lock to play even when he is healthy, given his long layoff and the general health of the rest of the Avalanche's defensemen.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Murray: Still awaiting medical clearance

    Murray (hand) continues to be sidelined for the Avs heading into Thursday's clash with Nashville, Ryan Boulding of NHL.com reports.

    Murray has already been on the shelf for Colorado's last 17 games and is poised to miss at least one more, though the fact that the team is heading into a back-to-back makes him unlikely for Friday's clash with Minnesota either. Considering the defenseman is pointless in his previous 22 contests, few fantasy players figure to be impacted even if he is cleared to return.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Murray: Facing multi-week absence

    According to coach Jared Bednar, Murray (upper body) will be out "weeks not days" after suffering a fracture while blocking a shot during Monday's win over Edmonton, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Given the expected length of Murray's absence, the 28-year-old defender will likely surface on injured reserve in the coming days. Samuel Girard (lower body) is still out long term, and Bowen Byram (head) remains without an expected timetable for his return, so the Avalanche will likely need to promote a blueliner from their AHL affiliate to fill in for the foreseeable future.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Murray: Leaves Monday's game

    Murray (upper body) will not return to Monday's tilt with Edmonton, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Murray was injured during the first period after just 31 seconds on the ice. The 28-year-old will be considered questionable until more information is available. Colorado's next game is Wednesday against the Canucks.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Murray: Set to play Tuesday

    Murray (upper body) will be in action versus the Coyotes on Tuesday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Murray will be back in the lineup for the first time since Jan. 14 against the Coyotes, a stretch of nine games on the sidelines. Considering the defenseman has just four helpers in 21 outings this year, fantasy players shouldn't be expecting much out of him in terms of fantasy value moving forward.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Murray: Remains out Friday

    Murray (upper body) won't play Friday in Chicago, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    This extends Murray's absence to eight consecutive games as he recovers from an upper-body injury. The defenseman, who has no goals and four assists this season, should be considered day-to-day leading up to Sunday's game versus Buffalo.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Murray: Still not ready to return

    Murray (upper body) won't play Wednesday versus the Bruins, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

    Murray returned to practice Monday in a non-contact sweater, but he apparently needs more time before he can return. The Avalanche's next game is Friday in Chicago.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Murray: Still in non-contact jersey

    Murray (upper body) practiced in a non-contact sweater Monday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports, indicating he'll remain unavailable versus Chicago on Monday.

    With Murray not yet cleared for contact, it seems likely he'll be out even longer than Monday's matchup, though the team hasn't provided any specific updates. At this point, the Saskatchewan native will be on the shelf for his sixth straight contest due to his lingering upper-body issue.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Murray: Remains out Saturday

    Murray (upper body) won't play Saturday versus the Canadiens.

    Murray will miss his fifth game in a row with the injury. At this point, it's safe to assume the defenseman is out indefinitely until he returns to practice.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Murray: Out again Thursday

    Murray (upper body) won't return versus the Kings on Thursday.

    Murray is set to miss a fourth game with the injury. He has yet to return to practice since he was hurt Jan. 14 versus the Coyotes, so his timeline to return is undetermined. The Avalanche's next game is Saturday versus the Canadiens.

  • Avalanche's Ryan Murray: Still out Wednesday

    Murray (upper body) is not ready to return Wednesday versus the Ducks.

    Murray will miss his third straight game, and with no reports of him being at practice, he's probably not going to be an option for Thursday versus the Kings, either. Kurtis MacDermid will continue to fill a third-pairing role while Murray is sidelined.
