The New Jersey Devils have acquired Ryan Murray from the Columbus Blue Jackets for a fifth-round pick in 2021.
The Blue Jackets have been linked to free agent Taylor Hall, so this could be a way for them to free up more money ahead of the market opening tomorrow afternoon. Columbus drafted Murray second overall back in 2013, but he hasn't lived up to that hype. The 27-year-old is still a solid player. He has one year remaining on a contract that will pay him $4.7 million (the cap hit is actually $4.6 million). The Jackets aren't retaining any of his salary. Murray had two goals and seven assists in 27 games in 2019-20. A fresh start could do him some good. Oct 08 9:14 pm (EST)
