The 2016-17 campaign was a disappointing one for Ryan Murray.
Murray had just two goals and 11 points in 60 points this season. In addition to that he saw his playing time drop from an average of 22:51 minutes in 2015-16 to 18:20 minutes in 2016-17. The Blue Jackets are hoping that they can eventually get more out of the 2012 second overall pick. "It’s a big summer for Ryan; for him and for us," Blue Jackets president John Davidson said. "He knows it. We’ve had good talks with him. He’s had good talks with our strength and conditioning people, our doctors. He’s a good hockey player, and we’ve seen some good things from him. He’s had bad injury luck without question, but he’s going to overcome that. He’s at the age now (23) where he’s not a young pup." Apr 25 - 10:31 AM
