Former Bemidji State hockey player Andrew Murray scored his first goal as a member of the San Jose Sharks in a 3-2 loss to Vancouver on Saturday night.
The first-period goal was Murray’s first since Feb. 4 of last season when he was with Columbus. He has a goal and an assist in 20 games so far playing on the Sharks fourth line.
Here’s a video of the goal:
Sharks writer Kevin Kurz wrote about the strong fourth-line effort in the loss.
Murray said this to Kurz:
“Winnie (Brad Winchester) did a nice job in his tussle setting the tone, and getting that goal was good, too. I think we can look at the positives.”
Head coach Todd McLellan said this about Murray’s goal:
“Obviously, Andy Murray getting his first goal was rewarding for him because he’s done a lot of good work for us.”
Murray played at Bemidji State from 2001-05 and has played in 201 career NHL games. He has 24 goals and 14 assists in his NHL career.
