It is not known if Murray is healthy enough to play on Tuesday as he is coming off a back injury that has kept him out of action since November 27 but if he was okay to play in the minors, chances are he will be in the lineup Tuesday. Murray has a goal and five points in 24 games this season with Columbus. He should not be in your fantasy lineup.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have activated Ryan Murray (back) from injured reserve and they've sent him to the minors on the conditioning stint.

Murray has missed each of Columbus' last 34 games because of the injury. He'll play a few games in the minors before jumping back into the lineup at the NHL level. The 24-year-old has one goal, five points and a plus-7 rating in 24 games this season.

Ryan Murray (upper body) was not present at practice but was spotted doing some off-ice conditioning work.

Murray has missed 17 straight games and has had trouble staying healthy so far in the NHL. The 24-year-old defenseman has only managed to play more than 66 games in a season once in his four previous seasons and he won't be able to eclipse that mark this season. It doesn't look like the former second overall pick will reach the level many thought he would.
