It's hard to describe Murray, he's such a unique person. He did everything for the community here in Barrie. He was a great captain and a great role model for kids in the community. Honestly, he was a great role model for guys in the room. I know guys the same age and even one year younger than myself and I looked up to Murray a lot. - Aidan Brown
I think he was a good captain for young guys to look up to, even guys like myself. With him, he liked to have fun outside of the rink. Always joking around and smiling. - Jason Willms
When I came to Barrie I was 16, I was a young guy, He made sure I felt welcome here. I think most importantly he taught me to be a good guy off of the ice. He was tremendous in the community and always a good guy, I don't think one guy could say anything bad about Murray. - Tyler Tucker

We are excited to see Murray continue his playing career and wish him the best of luck in Bridgeport.
