Jackets send top pick Murray back to junior team
The Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday returned 2012 first-round draft pick Ryan Murray to his junior team, the Everett Silvertips of the Western Hockey League.

The Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday returned 2012 first-round draft pick Ryan Murray to his junior team, the Everett Silvertips of the Western Hockey League.

Murray, the second pick of this year's NHL Draft, had 31 points in 46 games last season for Everett while serving as team captain. He had three points in six games for Canada at the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship, and was the youngest player (18) to skate for Canada at the 2012 World Championship, going without a point in six games.

Boone Jenner, the Blue Jackets' 2011 second-round pick, also was returned to his junior team, the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
