The Chilliwack Chiefs are excited to announce they have bolstered their lineup with the addition of major-junior veteran forward Davis Murray. Murray, a native of Sherwood Park, Alberta, spent the past three seasons in the Western Hockey League with the Edmonton Oil Kings, and the Kootenay Ice. The 6’1 forward suited up in 11 games this season for his hometown Sherwood Park Crusaders putting up one goal, one assist, to go with 103 penalty minutes. Last season with the Kootenay Ice of the WHL, Murray posted nine goals, six assists, and 67 penalty minutes.
The ’99 born forward will add experience and grit to the Chiefs roster, and Head Coach and GM Brian Maloney feels like the addition will help take the young team to the next level. “We are happy with where our group is at, and we felt that it was important for us to add a player with character, and experience. Davis is a player that brings size and a heavy style of game to our lineup, and we felt like we owed it to the players in our locker room to give them every opportunity to have success as we progress through the season and towards the playoffs.”
When asked about becoming a member of the Chilliwack Chiefs, Murray spoke to how excited he was at the opportunity to be a part of the tradition here in Chilliwack. “I’m extremely excited to join the Chiefs, and to come to the city of Chilliwack. I’m looking forward to meeting my teammates and coaches and am ready to get things started,” said Murray.
Davis Murray is expected to arrive in Chilliwack early next week.
