Rem Murray was born October 9, 1972 in Stratford, Ontario. The 5th choice, 135th overall selection of the Los Angeles Kings in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft, Murray is a graduate of the CCHA's Michigan State Spartans.

The Stratford, Ontario native spent four years at Michigan State where he was a CCHA First Team All-Rookie in 1992 and a CCHA Second Team All-Star in 1995. In the summer of 1995 the Edmonton Oilers signed Murray as a free agent and assigned him to their AHL affiliate in Cape Breton where he led the team in scoring as a rookie and finished 14th in AHL scoring with 90 points.

Following a successful rookie season in Cape Breton, Murray joined the Oilers for the 1996-97. In his third season with the club in 1998-99, Murray set a career high for goals (21) and points (31)before missing a total of 35 games the following season.

Coming off an injury plagued 1999-00 season, Murray rebounded in 2000-01 playing in all 82 games and finishing tied for 6th in team scoring with 36 points. A strong two-way player, Murray was dealt to the New York Rangers in the latter stages of the 2001-02 season and went on to play 32 games with the team in 2002-03 before being traded to the Nashville Predators.

After two seasons in Nashville, Murray rejoined the Oilers in the later stages of the 2005-06 season.

On the international stage, Murray represented his homeland at the 2001 World Championships.
