Defenseman Ryan Murray was a plus-1 in his return to the Columbus Blue Jackets' lineup on Friday night.

Murray had missed the previous 15 games because of a knee injury. The No. 2 overall pick in 2012 underwent arthroscopic surgery on March 7 after suffering the injury during a win at Toronto on March 3. He was expected to miss four to six weeks. "I got my legs back," Murray said. "We’re in a tight playoff race. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?" Coach Todd Richards said he didn’t hesitate to throw Murray into the fire of a postseason push after missing an entire month. "He’s earned my confidence in him, based on his decisions, his calmness with the puck, his poise and how he defends," Richards said.

Skating is another step." He joined his teammates for the final few minutes of practice on Thursday. Murray might be back if the Blue Jackets can qualify for the postseason.

He was a real, real bright spot for us all year." The rookie blueliner had 20 points and he was averaging 19:47 of ice time per contest.

One day after absorbing the biggest hit of his young NHL career, Blue Jackets rookie defenseman Ryan Murray pronounced himself 100 percent healthy and ready to play against the San Jose Sharks Friday night.

"I feel good," Murray said. "I’m glad nothing’s wrong." Murray left Thursday’s 2-1 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Kings midway through the second period when Kings forward Dustin Brown flattened him with a thunderous check that appeared to clip Murray’s head. The 20-year-old did not return for the rest of the second period, and he missed one shift at the start of the third. But once he was cleared by the medical staff using the NHL’s concussion protocol, Murray finished the game. "I kind of felt a little ridiculous, really, sitting back there on the doctor’s table," he said. "I thought I could just take a shift off, but they made me go through the whole ordeal." The NHL reviewed the hit but deemed it not worthy of punishment beyond the two minutes Brown received for charging.
