Montreal, QC, Canada (4E Sports) – The Montreal Canadiens signed free agent defenseman Douglas Murray to a one-year contract worth $1.5 million.
The 6-3, 240-pound Murray played between 17-20 minutes most games last season, splitting time between the San Jose Sharks and the Pittsburgh Penguins. His ice time plummeted in the postseason, where he was a minus-4.
Murray, 33, has seven career goals and 55 assists.
He had two goals and an assist in 15 playoff games with the Penguins.
The native of Bromma, Sweden, was drafted in the eighth round, 241st overall, by the Sharks in 1999.
He represented Sweden at the 2008 world championship and the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
