Ryan Murray's Player Profile

Ryan Murray is without question the the top defenseman available for selection in the 2012 NHL Draft. This impact player from the Everett Silvertips of the WHL tallied 27 points in 52 games as a rookie in the WHL, and averaged 30-35 minutes of playing time a game. Murray was the team captain for Canada in the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament, and led them to a gold medal. He is regularly noted for his great puckmoving ability, and is already being called the next Scott Niedermayer. Murray nearly made Canada's World Junior team this past year, but he is almost already a lock to be one of the teams top defensemen for the 2012 tournament. In 70 games with the Silvertips in 2010-2011, Murray scored 46 points, including 40 assists. Ryan Murray is looked at as a future two-way defenseman in the NHL, and will likely be a solid defenseman for years to come. Look for him to be the first defenseman selected in the upcoming draft, and he will certainly be picked in the top five selections.
