Marty Murray Talks '94, '95 WJHC, Minot Minotauros

Former Brandon Wheat Kings' captain Marty Murray was among the players Hockey Canada invited to Calgary this week for a reunion of Canada’s National Junior Team alumni.

The reunion celebrated and commemorated the 30th year anniversary of Hockey Canada’s Program of Excellence.

Marty Murray joined Tyler Crayston and myself on this week's edition of 880, CKLQ's Monday Sports Talk to discuss the reunion, the 1994 and 1995 WJHC (he won gold medals both years) and his current job as head coach of the Minot Minotauros of the NAHL.

You notice that on the picture of Marty's hockey card above that it says three-time World Champion.

That's because he also played for Canada when they won gold at the 1999 World Hockey Championship.

Always awesome to hear from Marty. Class act, and people seem to forget just how good he was in '95. I hope he finds his groove as a coach; maybe he can make a career of it. Still my favourite Wheat King of all.
