Ryan Murray scores first NHL goal

Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sport

Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Ryan Murray scored his first NHL goal on Friday night.

A shoulder injury last season delayed the NHL debut of Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Ryan Murray, the No. 2 overall pick in 2012.

He's starting to make his mark this season, and on Friday night he scored his first NHL goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs, beating Jonathan Bernier, just five minutes into the first period.

That goal was scored on the power play as David Clarkson, making his season debut with the Toronto Maple Leafs, was sitting in the penalty box for hooking.
