Murray earned the honour on Monday and on Tuesday the veteran netminder was named the Canadian Hockey League’s goaltender of the week.

Murray posted a 3-0-0 record with the Greyhounds that included a 2-0 overtime win in game five to wrap up the series.

The Pittsburgh Penguins prospect stopped 35 shots on Monday as the Greyhounds took a 2-1 series lead with a 5-3 win. Murray was back in goal for game four where he stopped 24 shots in a 2- shutout of the Attack.

Murray ended the series with a 30-save performance in a 6-1 series-clinching win in game five.
