Rob Murray was born April 4, 1967 in Toronto, Ontario. The 3rd choice, 61st overall selection of the Washington Capitals in the 1985 NHL Entry Draft, Murray is a graduate of the Ontario Hockey League's Peterborough Petes.

The Toronto, Ontario native spent three years with Peterborough before making his professional debut with the International Hockey League's Fort Wayne Komets in 1987-88.

A versatile player, who can play both center and the wing, Murray joined the American Hockey League's Baltimore Skipjacks in 1988-89 before making his NHL debut with the Capitals the following year.

Although he spent the majority of the season in Washington, Murray did see action with the Caps farm team in Baltimore and did much of the same the following year.

Following the 1990-91 season, the Minnesota North Stars claimed Murray from Washington and then dealt him to the Winnipeg Jets the very next day. Murray the spent better parts of the 1991-92 season with the Jets AHL affiliate in Moncton, while playing in eight games with Winnipeg.

For the next two seasons, Murray split his time between Moncton and Winnipeg before joining the Jets new AHL affiliate in Springfield in 1994-95. After joining Springfield, Murray spent the next four seasons with the Falcons, while being called up to Winnipeg on separate occasions.

Murray had his rights transferred to the Phoenix Coyotes after the Winnipeg franchise relocated in the summer of 1996 and after two more years in the Phoenix system, the team traded him to the Edmonton Oilers in the early stages of the 99-2000 season.

The 2000-01 season saw Murray split his season with the AHL's Philadelphia Phantoms and Springfield before joining the AHL's Saint-John Flames in 2001-02.

Throughout his career, Rob Murray has played 116 NHL games, scoring four goals while adding 15 assists for 19 points.
