October 2014 - Murphy has again been sent down to Charlotte. Murphy is second on the team with 13 shots on goal but only has one assist and a minus -3 in six games played. We will most likely see him again this season but look at this as a wake up call from Bill Peters that even the top four defensmen isnt safe. - Andrew Ward


October 2014 - Murphy made the Hurricanes for the third time in as many years, but again his hold seems tenuous. He was a healthy scratch in Game 1. However, his minutes were up over 20 in the ensuing two contests and was a plus-1 with six shots on goal. He has nothing to prove in the AHL as he posted 22 points in 22 games there last season. Dobber


March 2013 - From an offensive production standpoint, Ryan Murphy had a very disappointing regular season but he finished the season strong with nine points in his final five games. Murphy's 10 goals and 48 regular season points were his lowest totals since his rookie season but he did improve his defensive game slightly in his fourth OHL campaign. In the OHL Western Conference Coaches' Poll, Murphy was named the third best stickhandler, a category he finished second in during his previous two seasons. Brendan Ross



February 2013- Murphy was an emergency call-up for the Hurricanes for two games this month. Unfortunately, Murphy wasn't able to make a difference as the Hurricanes dropped both decisions. Despite the poor results and minus-4 rating, Murphy did average around 24 minutes of ice in both contests. Travis Watson



February 2013 – Murphy started the season rather poorly, compiling only a single assist in his first eight games, then he started to click. After playing a quiet World Junior Hockey Championship, he was invited to Hurricanes’ camp but was not given an extended look. It is impressive that since returning to the OHL he has posted 15 points in 13 games. Jason Banks


October 2012 - Ryan Murphy was named to the 2012 Subway Super Series Team OHL Roster slated to compete in a six-game series versus the Russian National Junior Team in November. Brendan Ross


December, 2011 – Ryan Murphy didn’t have a lot of time to lick his wounded ego after being cut from Carolina’s main camp. Sidelined with concussion-like symptoms following a dirty hit that earned Kuhnhackl a 20-game suspension, Murphy looked a shadow of his former self in his return. Initially a strong contender for a spot on Team Canada, the injury and its after-effects earned him a cut early on in the process. One of many young players now grappling with the scary and lingering realities of a concussion, 2011-12 looks to be a write-off. A near-generational talent on the powerplay, the Canes can only hope Murphy rebounds. Matthew Bugg



Fantasy Outlook: B+

High upside and he could start to soar at any moment. But hasn't shown a lot (offensively) at the NHL level throughout his many cups of coffee with the Canes.
