Because of Murray’s health, the Penguins recalled goaltender Casey DeSmith from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League.

Murray sustained the injury on Monday in Pittsburgh’s 5-4 overtime win over the Philadelphia Flyers. The 23-year-old exited the contest with 4:21 remaining in the second period after Flyers forward Jakub Voracek crashed into him during a breakaway.
