The Penguins took Murashov in the 2022 draft as their second pick that year. He went in the fourth round and was the 118 pick overall.

The Penguins seemingly have some depth in goal, with Murashov excelling in the MHL league, and Wheeling Nailers goalie Taylor Gauthier having himself a great season in the ECHL.

Murashov will be turning 20 on April 1st. He is a direct product of Ron Hextall giving the Penguins a presence in Russia for the first time since Evgeni Malkin and Alexander Pechurskiy.

We will see if Murashov will continue his dominance as the quarter finals continue against Almaz.
