Douglas Murray is the newest member of the Montreal Canadiens blueline, but he's definitely not your stereotypical hockey player. That's because he has an Ivy League education and is also one of the creators of the Ubertap, which is a hands-free three spout keg tap that allows you to pour beer five times faster than the common keg tap.

Murray and a few friends came up with the idea for the Ubertap during his days at Cornell University. "It took too long to get beer in college," Murray said with a smile.

Murray and his friends took their keg tap idea to several different designers and selected the model that best fit their concept.

However, the 33-year-old Swedish defenseman, who graduated from Cornell University in 2003 with a degree in Hotel Administration, is no longer involved in the company.

"It was a fun project and I learned a lot from it, but if you want to run a company properly you don't really have the time to do so when you're playing professional hockey," Murray said.

Even though Murray is no longer involved with it, the Ubertap is still in business and one can only assume it's popular among university students.
