Raymond Joseph "Rem" Murray (born October 9, 1972 in Stratford, Ontario) is a professional ice hockey left winger who plays for Pustertal-Val Pusteria Wolves in the Serie A.

Draft Edit

He was selected in the 6th round, 135th overall in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft by the Los Angeles Kings.

Playing careerEdit

Murray spent four years at Michigan State where he was a CCHA First Team All-Rookie in 1992 and a CCHA Second Team All-Star in 1995. In the summer of 1995 the Edmonton Oilers signed Murray as a free agent and assigned him to their American Hockey League affiliate in Cape Breton where he led the team in scoring as a rookie and finished 14th in AHL scoring with 90 points.

Following a successful rookie season in Cape Breton, Murray joined the Oilers for the 1996–97 season. He spent 6 seasons in Edmonton. This included the 1998–99 campaign where he set career highs for goals (21) and points (39). He was traded to the New York Rangers in 2002. In 2004, while playing for the Nashville Predators, Murray was diagnosed with a rare neck condition, (a form of dystonia) which tentatively forced him to retire in 2005. However, after failing a tryout with the Detroit Red Wings, Murray played the 2005–06 season with the Houston Aeros of the AHL, tallying 35 points in 54 games, good enough for Murray's former team, the Edmonton Oilers, to sign him to a contract in March 2006, in time for him to take part in their run to the Stanley Cup Finals.[1]

After two successful seasons (2007,2008) for IFK Helsinki, Finland, Murray recently signed for HC Innsbruck in the Austrian hockey league. On 11 July 2009 signed a contract with Pustertal-Val Pusteria Wolves in the Serie A.[2]


Murray wore three different numbers while playing with the Edmonton Oilers: #17 (which he had to give up when the Oilers retired Jari Kurri's jersey], #16 (which he asked former captain Kelly Buchberger if he could wear), and #22 (which he wore on his second stint with the Oilers because #16 was already taken by Jarret Stoll).

Murray played in 85 games during the 2002–03 season, although the NHL regular season has each team play only 82 regular season games. Murray was traded from the New York Rangers to the Nashville Predators mid-season.
