Playing career[edit]

He represented the U.S. at the 2004 World Juniors, where he helped the States win gold. He also played hockey at the University of North Dakota, and after two successful years he followed his father who coached in Switzerland and signed with Swiss club, the Rapperswil-Jona Lakers of the Nationalliga A.

In May 2007, he signed an entry-level contract with the Los Angeles Kings. In the 2007–08 season, he made his NHL debut on September 29, 2007 against the Anaheim Ducks in a game played in London, England. On October 12, he scored his first goal against the Boston Bruins. After one season in the Kings organization, Murray opted to return to Switzerland, initially on loan from the Kings, to HC Lugano.
