Ryan Murray will be scratched Friday night for the Blue Jackets

Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Ryan Murray will spend Friday's game in the press box.

What It Means:

With a minus four rating in his last two games, it's possible the 22 year-old Murray is being benched as a sign to pickup his play. The Blue Jackets play the Pittsburgh Penguins Friday night, followed by the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday.

This will be the first game of the season missed for Murray, who has 12 points (5 goals, 7 assists) in 16 games played. This is the second most points among defensemen on the Blue Jackets. We project Murray to score another 6 goals and tally 14 more assists over the remaining course of the season, pending his benching isn't long-term.
