Matt Murray doesn't want anything to do with the Sabers

Matt Murray doesn't want to know about the Sabers


Ottawa Senators goaltender Matt Murray has refused to waive his partial no-trade clause to avoid being traded to the Buffalo Sabres. 

This was reported Thursday by journalist Elliotte Friedman of the Sportsnet network. According to him, the discussions between the two formations of the Atlantic section of the National Hockey League were advanced, but the principal concerned preferred to remain in the Canadian capital.

Murray holds a valid agreement for two other campaigns and his salary will count annually for $6.25 million on the mass of his team. Also, the veteran had trouble in 2021-2022, having temporarily found himself in the American League, where he played two games with the Senators school club. In Ottawa, he went 5-12-2 with a 3.05 goals-against average and .906 save percentage.

For the Sabers, Craig Anderson, 41 , confirmed his return by signing a one-year pact at the end of June.
