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

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun..
