CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa — The Pittsburgh Penguins announced starting goaltender Matt Murray is out with a concussion. The goaltender possibly suffered the concussion Saturday in the 5-1 loss to Montreal or in practice, yesterday. It is Murray’s second concussion since February and at least the third of his two and a half year career.
If Murray misses the start against Vegas, Thursday night it will be the eighth injury of his short career. In addition to a concussion last February and a prior concussion in April 2016, Murray has also missed time with a broken hand and various lower body injuries.
Penguins coach Mike Sullivan will address the matter after practice, which was pushed back to 11:30 a.m., today.
Last March, PHN looked at Murray’s injury history in comparison with other starting goaltenders.
