Skating for the first time at the age of two, Murray has leadership qualities from the backend, captaining Everett the past two seasons (youngest captain in franchise history when first named for 2010-11 season) as well as for Team Canada at the 2011 World Under-18 Championships where he finished seond on the team in scoring with 10 points (3-7-10) in seven games.  

NHL Central Scouting's B.J. MacDonald: "I think Murray is more like a [Scott] Niedermayer; he just does everything under the radar and so smooth you hardly notice it...He never gets out of position and I've never seen him lose a one-on-one battle. He's always, defensively, in the right spots. He just does everything so seamlessly."

NEWS:
Prospect Ryan Murray Makes Playing 'D' Easy
(04.17.12) It isn't often a teenage hockey fanatic would opt to spend weekend nights in the summer jamming on a six-string alongside a group of friends to the sounds of legendary rock singer Neil Young.

Then again, Everett Silvertips defenseman Ryan Murray is anything but ordinary.

The 6-foot, 201-pound Murray might not be the flashiest performer available among what many consider to be a deep and talented group of defensemen eligible for the 2012 NHL Draft, but he might be the most consistent.
