Murray of the Senators could be waived after being scratched against the Ducks – .


After Matt Murray was eliminated against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday, the Ottawa Senators could put him on waivers on Saturday, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.
Murray struggled after joining the Senators via trade before last season and was mired in another troubled campaign in 2021-22.

After a bout with COVID-19, the 27-year-old returned to the territory against the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday, allowing four goals on 27 shots in the team’s 6-3 loss. During the season, he is 0-5 with a goals against average of 3.27 and save percentage of 0.890.

After the loss to the Sharks, Senators coach DJ Smith praised the performance of the team’s goalies, but did not name Murray specifically.

“I didn’t care about our details. I just think we have to find someone to take the net and start winning us a few games when we give that effort. We need someone to come in and hold us right now, ”Smith said. “We’re a young team who probably need someone to steal one for us, probably.

A two-time Stanley Cup winner with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Murray is in the second year of his four-year, $ 6.25 million contract with Ottawa.
