Pens Murray out with a concussion

Pens Murray out with a concussion

Murray, in his third National Hockey League season, has won two Stanley Cups, and just this season has fully taken over the reigns in the Penguins crease following Marc-Andre Fleury being selected by the Vegas Golden Knights.

Head coach Mike Sullivan confirmed on Tuesday that Matt Murray has been diagnosed with a concussion.

Murray left Monday's practice early after being hit by an Olli Maatta shot. Murray also has one shutout this season. He has backstopped the Penguins to two Stanley Cups.

With Murray out, Casey DeSmith and Jarry will serve as the team's goaltenders. "We've had some success with some inexperienced guys".

General manager Jim Rutherford said later that Murray would have to be looked at again on Tuesday before any call can be made on his status. In his first full season at the Penguins' starting goaltender, the 23-year-old native of Thunder Bay, Ont., has a 2.82 GAA and.909 save percentage over 37 starts.

He became the de facto No. 1 puckstopper when Pittsburgh lost Marc-Andre Fleury to the Vegas Golden Knights in the expansion draft last summer. Jarry is 10-4-2 with a 2.58 GAA and.916 save percentage in 20 games.
