Former Penguins defenseman Douglas Murray has finally found a new home. Murray, also known as “Crankshaft,” signed a one-year deal with the Montreal Canadiens worth $1.5 million. The 33 year-old became an unrestricted free agent on July 5th after spending last season with the San Jose Sharks and Penguins. In 15 postseason games with Pittsburgh, he recorded 2 goals and an assist. The $1.5 million salary cap hit is exactly $1 million less than his previous cap hit of $2.5 million the past four seasons.
