Murray likely out rest of season
TheFourthPeriod.com

Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Ryan Murray could miss the rest of the 2012-13 WHL season following a surgery procedure to repair a torn labrum.

Murray, 19, is expected to have surgery in the next two-to-three weeks, according to Columbus Dispatch beat reporter Aaron Portzline.

Last week, an MRI showed a small tear in the Everett Silvertips captain's labrum, upon which he flew to Columbus to meet with the Blue Jackets' medical staff. It will take approximately four-to-six months to recover from this surgery.

As a result, Murray will not only miss the WHL season, but he will not be able to play for Team Canada during this year's World Junior Hockey Championship.

The Blue Jackets drafted Murray with the second-overall selection in the 2012 NHL Draft.
