Matt Murley (born December 17, 1979 in Troy, New York) is a professional ice hockey player who plays with the Khabarovsk Amur of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). He has played 62 games in the National Hockey League (NHL) with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Phoenix Coyotes.

Playing career

Before his professional career, Murley played college hockey for four seasons at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. He was drafted in the 2nd round (51st overall) by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, although he did not choose to report to Pittsburgh until 2002. Murley played with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL before being called up for the 2003–2004 season. In 2006, Murley's contract with Pittsburgh terminated and Murley signed as a free-agent with the Colorado Avalanche. After playing a full season with Colorado's then AHL affiliate in Albany, Murley's one-year deal expired and on July 20, 2007 he signed a one-year contract with the Phoenix Coyotes. After splitting the season between Phoenix and San Antonio, Murley signed a one year deal with the Carolina Hurricanes. He was expected to be spending more time near his home town of Troy as he joins Carolina's AHL affiliate the Albany River Rats for a second time. Murley was re-assigned to the AHL's Albany River Rats. However, instead of joining Albany, Murley informed the Hurricanes that he was signing with Khabarovsk Amur, of the Kontinental Hockey League in Russia.


Murley was invited to his former Pittsburgh Penguins teammate Ryan Malone's wedding on the condition that he brought a date, unable to find one in time Murley walked down the aisle with good friend and former teammate Sidney Crosby.
