Canadiens reach agreement in principle with Swedish defenceman Murray

MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens have reached an agreement in principle with Swedish defenceman Douglas Murray on a one-year contract.

The six-foot-three, 245-pound defenceman had one goal, five assists and a minus-9 rating in 43 games with San Jose and Pittsburgh last season. He added two goals and an assist in 15 playoff games with the Penguins.

The native of Bromma, Sweden, was drafted in the eighth round, 241st overall, by the Sharks in the 1999 NHL draft.

He has seven goals, 55 assists and 370 penalty minutes in 465 career games with San Jose and Pittsburgh.

He represented Sweden at the 2008 world championship and the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

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.
