Murray lost his cool in the third period with 5:55 left on the clock after the Kings received a match penalty and a gross misconduct in their game with the Winnipeg Saints. The Kings lost 5-1.

In the video posted to YouTube on Friday, which has since been removed by the original user, Murray can be seen throwing hockey sticks onto the ice and yelling obscenities at the officials.

On Saturday, the MJHL announced Murray would receive a two-game suspension for receiving a gross misconduct penalty, as well as a 10-game suspension for receiving a match penalty for physical harassment of officials in the same game. The Dauphin Kings were also fined an undisclosed amount as per league policy.
