The Sharks have signed forward Andrew Murray one year contract. It is a two-way contract worth $575K in the NHL and $105K in the AHL.
Murray played only 29 games with the Blue Jackets last season. He missed 31 games due to separate injuries, and he was a healthy scratch a few times. He did not make the trip to Europe to open the season (their games in Europe were coincidentally against the Sharks), and he started the season on injured reserve with a knee injury. He made his season debut on November 12th. Murray suffered a lower-body injury in that game, and he did not play again the rest of the regular season. In those 29 games he played in, he had four goals and four assists, a +2 rating, 77 hits and only four penalty minutes. He’s a physical forward that is responsible defensively and very disciplined. His career high in points is only 11, so he won’t be contributing much offensively. He ‘ll be fighting for a roster spot in training camp. If he does make the team, he will most likely be the right wing on the fourth line or the 13th forward.
