Xavier Murdoch

Born in Edmonton, Alberta, I moved to Moscow, Idaho in 6th grade and grew up as a proud player for the Palouse Youth Hockey Association.  I formerly played Junior A hockey for the Eugene Generals of the Northern Pacific Hockey League and am currently a sophomore at the University of Idaho.  I am pursuing a degree in Physical Therapy with the hope of one day owning and operating my own clinic.  Outside of hockey I love spending time with family and friends, reading, playing lacrosse, and waterskiing.  Growing up in a newly formed and tight-knit organization, the value of giving back to the community was always something that was heavily emphasized.  I was lucky enough to have an amazing high school coach who continues to inspire me to this day.  He consistently demonstrated all of the good one can accomplish by caring enough to volunteer one’s time and is the main reason I love being a coach myself.
