RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

Last year was quite a whirlwind for Murray. First, he tore through the AHL with a 2.10 GAA and .930 save percentage. Then, he replaced a starting goalie (Marc-Andre Fleury) with 12 years of NHL experience at the end of March. The rookie responded by backstopping his squad to a Stanley Cup Championship, never once looking overwhelmed. The big question entering 2016-17 is whether he can do it again. Was last year just an unbelievable ride with a fairy-tale ending or does Murray’s excellence have legs for a full season? We’ve seen rookies win Cups under GM Jim Rutherford, only to end up becoming middling NHL netminders – see Cam Ward. Is Murray different? His prior AHL experience says so, as he starred in the minors for two seasons. Rutherford has gone on record stating he’s happy splitting up time between his top goalies, but that may be trade gesturing as much as anything else. Fleury has a $5.75 million cap hit remaining for another three seasons while Murray will make $628,000 in 2016-17. For now, fantasy owners have to assume that the two will occupy a timeshare at minimum, with Murray seemingly the favorite to take a majority of the starts.

2014-15

Ranked second of three goaltending prospects, between Tristan Jarry and Eric Hartzell respectively, Murray compiled a 32-11-6 record for OHL Sault Ste. Marie last year, fashioning a 2.57 GAA and .921 save percentage. The 20-year-old will get his first taste of pro action in the fall with Wilkes-Barre, Pittsburgh's AHL affiliate. Given that starter Marc-Andre Fleury is in the final season of a five-year contract, there could be a goaltending opening in the next couple seasons. A strong start in the AHL could push Murray up the depth charts in a hurry, though it's still a long shot he sees time inside Consol Energy Center in 2014-15.
