May 24, 2010 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Springfield Falcons
It is with deepest sympathy that members of the Springfield Falcons organization extend their condolences to the family of Springfield Hockey Hall of Famer, Doug McMurdy, who passed away recently. McMurdy was inducted into the Springfield Hockey Hall of Fame in 2000 after playing a total of six seasons in Springfield.
McMurdy played in Springfield from 1948-1951 before coming back for a second tour of duty from 1954-1957. He played in a total of 286 games in Springfield totaling 85 goals, 182 assists for 267 points. He was described by his teammates as an excellent, play-making center that had a gifted touch off the face-off.
Upon his retirement from pro hockey in 1958, McMurdy continued to call Springfield home throughout his post-playing days.
