Buffalo prospect Murray to join Penn State for second half of ’16-17 season

Buffalo Sabres draft pick Brett Murray will join Penn State at the start of 2017.

Murray will enroll a semester early at Penn State and join the Nittany Lions when they return from winter break. He played the first half of the 2016-17 season with the Youngstown Phantoms of the United States Hockey League.

In 27 games with Youngstown, Murray collected 20 points on seven goals and 13 assists with a plus-nine rating.

“At 6-foot-5, Brett is an imposing power forward,” Penn State coach Guy Gadowsky said in a statement. “His ability to both think the game and get up and down the ice will allow him to make a smooth transition to college hockey.”

Murray was selected in the fourth round (99th overall) of the 2016 NHL Draft by the Sabres after he tallied 46 points in 48 games with the Carleton Place Canadians of the Central Canada Hockey League and helped the team to the CCHL championship.

  1. This team just became even more dangerous to the rest of the country, even though every nchc fan will refuse to recognize it due to the fact PSU blew up the wcha and they all miss playing Minnesota.

    • I agree but it really doesn’t matter whether people acknowledge the strength of the Big Ten, it’s clear in the results. People are going to have to pick a new tactic to throw shade at the B1G, since the play on the ice is as strong as any conference in the nation.
