Murray is making his international debut at age 26. He has played all his hockey in North America after leaving Sweden as a high school exchange student in 1998.
His maternal grandfather, Lars (Lasse) Bjorn, was part of two gold-medal teams at the World Championships in 1953 and 1957 and won a silver medal at the 1956 Olympics. He's a member of the International Ice Hockey Hall of Fame.
It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
