Observations:

June 2017 — Since the last update, Murphy has played two seasons with the Milwaukee Admirals. This year he played one game short of the full 76 regular season games, while putting up twelve goals and 33 points. Four of those goals were scored on the powerplay. Murphy is shooting the puck a lot, averaging two shots per game during his time in the AHL. The Windsor native is a good skater and can quarterback the power play. He plays with an edge, even though he is only 5-10. Sometimes he can be a bit inconsistent defensively. Niko Salminen

 

November 2015 – After going undrafted Murphy was signed as a free agent in September by the Nashville Predators.  He has stepped right into the AHL and has gotten off to a blazing start leading the Admiral D in scoring with eight points in eight games. He is also the fifth leading scorer among rookie defenseman in the league. Murphy is an offensively inclined defenseman and has shown an ability to put up points in the junior ranks scoring at over a point per game basis in his final year of junior. While it’s a small sample size the start to his professional career is a promising look at his offensive potential. It’s worth monitoring if he can keep this pace up.  Donesh Mazloum

 

Fantasy Outlook: C

Undersized good skater that can pass well and has offensive upside. With the Predators top-four locked in for three more years, it is hard to see Murphy gaining any fantasy value in the near future.
