Glen Murray (born November 1, 1972) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player. He was bought out by the Boston Bruins on July 26, 2008 to free up salary cap room for the 2008–09 NHL season.

Murray was raised in the Bridgewater, Nova Scotia area and played junior hockey for the Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL). Murray was a first-round draft pick, 18th overall by the Bruins in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft. He spent four seasons with the Bruins before being traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins with Bryan Smolinski for Kevin Stevens and Shawn McEachern. Murray's stay with the Penguins only lasted a little over a year and he was eventually on the move again; this time he was traded to Los Angeles Kings for Ed Olczyk. Murray enjoyed moderate success with the Kings, picking up some good numbers during his five-year stay, but on October 24, 2001, Murray would once again find himself in the middle of a trade. Murray was traded back to the Boston Bruins with Jozef Stümpel for Jason Allison and Mikko Eloranta.

Murray enjoyed his greatest offensive season in 2002–03, scoring 92 points (44 goals and 48 assists) for the Bruins and earning a spot in the 2003 NHL All-Star Game. On July 23, 2008, Murray was placed on waivers by the Bruins, and three days later, on July 26, the Bruins announced the buyout of Murray's contract.
