TORONTO -- Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Ryan Murray left the game Monday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs with a lower-body injury and will not return.

Murray, 20, played 4:51 of the first period. His final shift of the game came with 1:47 remaining.

In his rookie season with the Blue Jackets, Murray has played 60 games and has three goals and 17 assists.

"I don't sense that it's serious," Columbus coach Todd Richards said after the game. "It might be something that keeps him out."

Columbus is also missing defenseman Fedor Tyutin, who is on injured reserve due to an ankle injury.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
