About

NHL goaltender who led the Pittsburgh Penguins to the 2015-2016 Stanley Cup title as a rookie. However, because he didn't play enough games during the 2015-2016 regular season, he was still considered a rookie in 2016-2017, leading him to break the rookie record for most Stanley Cup playoff wins on his way to a second Cup title.

Before Fame

He played major junior hockey with the Soo Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League. He was taken 83rd overall by the Penguins in the 2012 NHL Draft.

Trivia

He set an AHL record in 2014-2015 with a shutout streak of more than 300 minutes and was named the league's Rookie of the Year. He only had 13 career starts in the NHL when he became the Penguins' playoff starter in 2015-2016.

Family Life

He began dating Christina Sirignano in 2016. He was born to Jim Murray and Fenny Seinen.
