Edward Kevin (Mickey) Murray

Born in Peterborough in 1898, Mickey Murray excelled at hockey and baseball. He was an outstanding goalie and baseball player during his amateur days in Peterborough, Oshawa and Galt. From 1916 to 1921 he played Junior, Intermediate and Senior hockey for the hometown Petes.

He turned pro with the Providence Reds and played in the Can-Am and AHA Hockey Championships with the Providence Reds in 1929-30 and with the St. Louis Flyers in 1934-35 and 1935-36. He was named to the AHA All-Star Team in 1935 and 1936 and was a Second Team All-Star in 1930 and 1938. He led the CAMHL and AHA in such categories as best Goals Against Average, Most Shut-Outs and Most Play-Off wins a number of times during his career. He has the best all-time Goals Against Average in the Providence Reds history, for any goalie appearing in over 100 games. He is also tied for first in all-time shut-outs (23). To this day, he is given prominence in the history of the Providence Reds/Bruins Hockey Organization.

Mickey’s only opportunity to play in the NHL was a call-up by the Montreal Canadiens to replace George Hainsworth in a game against the New York Americans in Madison Square Gardens on February 24, 1930. He lost the game 4-2.

In a 1932 article in the Peterborough Examiner, Mickey Murray was picked to be the First Team All-Star Goalie for the Peterborough Dream Team of that era.
