Muzz grievance decision expected in late February

MONTREAL, Quebec — A continuation of a grievance hearing involving Glen Murray and the NHLPA that began in mid-January has been scheduled for February 12-13, and — according to NHLPA Exec. Director Paul Kelly — an arbitration ruling is likely to come down 7-10 days following the days of hearings.

Murray was bought out of his contract this summer, but the team was still on the hook for a $1.38 million salary cap hit this season and next. The NHL CBA rules prohibit teams from buying out injured players, and Murray’s representation is now claiming that the veteran forward was injured at the time of the buy-out. The team could be on the hook for the $4.15 million owed to Murray in actual salary. A positive ruling for Murray could, however, potentially open up roughly $1.4 million in salary cap space for the Bruins next season.
