A strong playoff performance is netting Matt Murray some recognition.
The Thunder Bay netminder was named the Ontario Hockey League’s player of the week after compiling a 3-0 mark en route to leading the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds to a five game series win over the Owen Sound Attack.
The 19-year-old Pittsburgh Penguins draft pick recorded one shutout to go along with a .957 save percentage and a paltry 1.33 goals against average.
The Greyhounds, the regular season West Division champs, advance to meet the Erie Otters in the Western Conference semifinals.
Murray had six shutouts in the regular season to tie for the league lead while sporting a 32-11-1-5 record, placing him second in the league for most wins.
This is the second time this season Murray has earned player of the week honours.
