Right at the start of the second round of the 2020 NHL Draft, it was announced that the Senators had acquired two-time Stanley Cup-winning goaltender Matt Murray from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for Jon Gruden, and the 52nd overall selection in this year’s draft
“The acquisition of Matt Murray is a great addition to our lineup,” said Dorion “He is a proven goaltender who has considerable experience in high pressure and someone we are sure will be. he will serve as an exceptional mentor for our young group of future goalkeepers »
Selected 83rd overall by the Penguins in 2012, Murray, 26, posted a career-high 117-53-19 Despite struggling the past two seasons, the Thunder native Bay, Ont., Has two Stanley Cups to his name as the main goaltender in 2016 and 2017 With 29 career playoff wins, Murray ranks third on the Penguins’ all-time list

Not only did they avoid parting with a second-round player or better prospect, but they also brought in a goaltender who has the potential to be a Turris or Duclair type salvage project Aside from the last two seasons, Murray is a Stanley Cup winner for a reason, and will certainly be motivated to bounce back and earn himself a lucrative long-term contract.
Murray being an RFA, the next step for the Senators will be to sign the goalie for a period of several years. The deadline to submit qualifying offers is today at 5 p.m.
