The Ottawa Senators have acquired two-time Stanley Cup champion goaltender Matt Murray from the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Senators sent forward Jonathan Gruden and a second-round draft pick (52nd overall) in this year's entry draft in exchange for the 26-year-old netminder who is entering his sixth season in the NHL and is a restricted free agent.
The Senators were in need of goaltending after not offering veteran Craig Anderson a contract in September.
Murray, from Thunder Bay, Ont., had a 20-11-5 record in 38 starts this past season.
"We would like to thank Matt for everything he's done in his five seasons with the Penguins," Pittsburgh general manager Jim Rutherford said in a statement. "He was instrumental to our back-to-back Stanley Cup Championships, and we wish him the best."
Gruden, 20, played the 2019-20 season with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League, where he appeared in 59 games, recording 30 goals, 36 assists, 66 points and was plus-20. His 30 goals ranked second on the team while his 66 points were fourth most.
The Rochester Hills, Mich., native was drafted by Ottawa in the fourth round (95th overall) in the 2018 NHL Draft. He was a member of the U.S. National Team Development Program for two seasons from 2016-18, serving as an alternate captain of Team USA at the World Junior Championship in 2018, helping them to a silver medal.
