Ken Murray
Defenseman
Number: 24
Height: 6' 0"
Weight: 180
Shoots: Right
Born: Jan 22, 1948
Birthplace: Toronto, ON, Canada
Acquired: Traded to Detroit by New York Islanders with Brian Lavender for Ralph Stewart and Bob Cook on January 17, 1973.
A former member of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior "B" Hockey League's St. Thomas Barons, Murray made his professional debut with the Central Hockey League's Tulsa Oilers in 1969-70.

Even though he spent the majority of the season with Tulsa, the Toronto Maple Leafs signed Murray as a free agent in April of 1970 and played in one game with the Leafs during the 69-70 season.

In 1970-71, the Toronto, Ontario native spent the majority of the season in Tulsa, while only playing a handful of games with the Leafs before being claimed by the Buffalo Sabres in the 1971 intra-league draft.

Unable to make the Buffalo roster, Murray spent the entire 1971-72 season as a member of the American Hockey League's Cincinnati Swords before being claimed by the New York Islanders in the 1972 expansion draft.

After only 39 games with the Islanders during the 1972-73 season, New York traded Murray to the Detroit Red Wings where he finished the season scoring his first and only NHL goal.

Murray's stay in Detroit was short lived, as joined the Red Wings American Hockey League affiliate in Virginia in 1973-74. However, midway through the 73-74 season Detroit (AHL-Virginia) traded Murray to the Western Hockey League's Seattle Totems.

During the off-season, the Kansas City Scouts claimed Murray from Detroit in the 1974 expansion draft. Murray played only eight games with the Scouts, while spending the better part of the year with the Kansas City's AHL affiliate in Baltimore before being dealt to the Los Angeles Kings midway through the 1974-75 season. Murray however never suited up for the Kings, instead he was assigned to their AHL affiliate in Springfield where he finished the year leading the Indians to the 1975 Calder Cup championship.

Although he spent the majority of the 1975-76 with Springfield, Ken Murray rejoined Kansas City for 23 games before playing his last three seasons in the American Hockey League with stops in Rhode Island, New Haven and Philadelphia.

Throughout his career, Ken Murray played in 106 NHL games, scoring one goal and adding 10 assists for 11 points.
