Dallas Stars Sign Goalie To Contract Extension

The Dallas Stars have officially announced the signing of 25-year-old goaltender Matt Murray to a one-year, two-way contract for the upcoming 2023-24 season.

Murray made his NHL debut last season, appearing in three games and earning a 1-2-0 record with a 3.39 goals-against average (GAA) and a .844 save percentage.

His debut showcased his talent as he led the Stars to a 5-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks, becoming the first rookie goaltender for the team to win his NHL debut on the road since 2006.

Throughout the season, Murray had a standout performance in the AHL with the Texas Stars, posting an impressive 18-10-5 record in 34 games.

He led all rookie goaltenders in the league with a 2.37 GAA and maintained a solid .911 save percentage.

Murray's success extended to the playoffs, where he recorded a 5-3-0 record in eight appearances, with a 2.79 GAA and a .909 save percentage.

Originally from St. Albert, Alberta, Murray has proven himself as a promising goaltender with his strong play in both the AHL and NHL.

Standing at 6-foot-1 and weighing 200 pounds, he brings a combination of size and skill to the Stars' goaltending lineup. With his new contract, Murray is expected to continue honing his abilities in the AHL while potentially serving as a backup option for the Stars in the future.
