LOS ANGELES ? The Los Angeles Kings have re-assigned center Brady Murray
from the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League to HC Lugano of the Swiss National League, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced Thursday.
Murray, 24, was assigned to Manchester on September 29 after appearing in one preseason game with the Kings. The 5-9, 185-pound native of Brandon, Manitoba, made his NHL debut with the Kings last season and scored one point (a goal) while registering six penalty minutes in four regular season games. Additionally, he appeared in 58 regular season games with Manchester last season, recording 27 points (14-13=27) and 50 penalty minutes, and then closed the season by scoring one point (a goal) in four postseason games with the Monarchs. Murray was originally selected by Los Angeles in the fifth round (152nd overall) in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
