Blue Jackets prospect Ryan Murray undergoes successful shoulder surgery

COLUMBUS, OHIO – Columbus Blue Jackets Executive Vice President and General Manager Scott Howson announced today that defenseman Ryan Murray underwent surgery this morning on his injured shoulder. Murray, the club’s first pick, second overall, in the 2012 NHL Draft, will be sidelined for approximately six months but is expected to make a full recovery.

Murray, who is captain of the Western Hockey League’s Everett Silvertips, was injured on November 16 in a game against the Victoria Royals. The 19-year-old had appeared in 23 games with Everett this season, collecting two goals and 15 assists for 17 points with 14 penalty minutes. In 191 WHL games, he has registered 22-99-121 with 121 penalty minutes and a cumulative +51 plus/minus rating. The White City, Saskatchewan native also helped Canada capture a bronze medal at the 2012 World Junior Championships and was expected to represent his country at this year’s tournament in Ufa, Russia before suffering the injury.
