Matthew Murray (born May 25, 1994) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender for the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL). Murray was selected by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the third round (83rd overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. In 2016, Murray won his first Stanley Cup championship as the starting goalie for the Penguins during the playoffs after having replaced then-starter Marc-Andre Fleury. Murray would split the net with Fleury during the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs, winning the Stanley Cup again in 2017. Murray became the first goaltender to win back-to-back Stanley Cups as a rookie.
