Defenseman Douglas Murray, whom the Penguins acquired at the trade deadline last season, has agreed to a one-year deal with the Montreal Canadiens. TSN of Canada reported that the contract is worth $1.5 million.
Murray, 33, had been making $2.5 million the last four years. He was an unrestricted free agent who saw his ice time decrease throughout the playoffs as he accumulated 32 penalty minutes and went minus-3.
Murray, acquired from San Jose for a 2013 second round draft pick, is the second of the Penguins' four deadline additions to have signed elsewhere this offseason. Jarome Iginla singed with Boston in July.penguins
