Big risk to the team
Murray understands why Senators exposed him in Expansion Draft: report
Matt Murray understands why the Ottawa Senators left him unprotected in the 2021 NHL Expansion Draft presented by Upper Deck on Wednesday (8 p.m. ET; ESPN2, SN1, SN NOW), his agent told the Ottawa Sun.
The 27-year-old goalie was informed by Senators general manager Pierre Dorion on Saturday that he would be made available to the Seattle Kraken.
"Matt gets it 100 percent and he's fine with it," Murray's agent, Robert Hooper, said in remarks published Sunday. "Pierre explained to Matt that they don't want to lose him, and based on their educated guess they don't believe they will. The Senators don't feel this will be a big risk to the team."
