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.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
