Matt Murray will sign an extension in Ottawa and will be their goalie of the future at 26-years-old. Murray has already played in 50 playoff games at his young age and won 26 of them. However, with Tristan Jarry looking to be the better option going forward and the Seattle Kraken coming the Pens needed to make this move. Will Matt Murray be able to bring the Senators to the next level in the near future? We will see.
