Maple Leafs’ Murray out 6-8 months after hip surgery

Maple Leafs' Murray out 6-8 months after hip surgery

Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Matt Murray will miss a minimum of six-to-eight months after undergoing bilateral hip surgery, the team announced Monday.

Murray was placed on long-term injured reserve in July, but the Leafs didn’t specify the ailment he was dealing with. Toronto was reportedly looking to trade the netminder earlier in the offseason for salary cap savings.

The Maple Leafs acquired Murray from the Ottawa Senators last July. His debut season in Toronto was marred by multiple injuries that limited him to only 26 games in which he posted a .903 save percentage.

Murray is set to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

The Maple Leafs will start the 2023-24 season with a tandem of Ilya Samsonov and Joseph Woll between the pipes.
