Murray comments on Doughty

Here were Terry Murray’s thoughts today about the inclusion of Drew Doughty on Canada’s Olympic roster…

MURRAY: “It’s a great opportunity for him. It’s wonderful for a guy, 20 years old, to be selected as one of the top defensemen in Canada and play in the Olympic program. It’s great, it’s exciting.”

Question: Did you think, at the start of this season, that he had a chance to be picked?

MURRAY: “Yeah, I did. I thought that he had a chance. He had a great year last year. He really had an impact on our hockey club, playing a lot of minutes in all situations. I don’t know the reasoning behind what the process is, when you’re selecting defensemen for the team, but he is a pretty complete hockey player. He’s going to be able to get out there in all situations. He’s not a player that’s going to feel overwhelmed or nervous. He can handle the big stage. He’s done it in the past, and he will do it again. It’s wonderful.”
