Blue Jackets defenceman Ryan Murray has arthroscopic knee surgery, will miss 4-6 weeks

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Columbus Blue Jackets rookie defenceman Ryan Murray will miss four to six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his knee.

The 20-year-old Murray, the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NHL draft, has three goals and 17 assists and a +3 plus/minus rating in 61 games with the Blue Jackets this season. He ranks third among all league rookies in blocked shots (93), second in time on ice (1,207:37) and is tied for fifth in power-play points (6).

Murray is a 6-foot-1, 208-pounder who won a bronze medal with Team Canada at the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championships and became the second-youngest player in Canadian history to compete at the IIHF World Championships that same year.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
