Hurricanes' Murphy Suffers Slight Setback

News: Ryan Murphy (leg) recently suffered a slight setback in his injury rehab, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: As a result, Ryan Murphy is not ready to rejoin practice, with no timetable for his potential return outlined at this stage.

Canes' Murphy Gets On Ice Friday

News: Ryan Murphy (leg) took shots on the ice prior to Friday's morning skate, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Ryan Murphy isn't expected to return to action for at least another two weeks, so his activity on the ice was likely just an attempt to stay conditioned while he continues to recover from the leg injury. The Hurricanes haven't provided an indication of when Murphy might be able to start practicing with the team again.

Canes' Murphy Out Four Weeks With Leg injury

News: Ryan Murphy has been ruled out four weeks with a leg injury and was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Chantel McCabe of FOX Sports Carolinas reports.
Analysis: Ryan Murphy went in for MRI on Monday, which confirmed the grim diagnosis. Fortunately for the blueliner, who suffered the injury last Thursday against the Coyotes, he will not require surgery. The 21-year-old should be able to return during the final few weeks of the season, but it probably makes sense for those who own him in single-season leagues to cut bait in pursuit of a healthier option. Murphy had inched his way onto the fantasy radar by picking up his offensive production since rejoining the Hurricanes out of the All-Star break, having tallied a goal, an assist and 16 shot attempts over his last five games.

Canes' Murphy (Lower Body) Won't Play Thurday

News: Coach Bill Peters indicated Ryan Murphy (lower body) won't play Thursday against the Ducks, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Ryan Murphy's MRI results haven't returned yet apparently, which will apparently determine whether he will be day-to-day or week-to-week. Either way, he has already been ruled out for Thursday's contest, making his next possible return date Saturday against the Wild.

MRI On Tap For Hurricanes' Murphy

News: Ryan Murphy (lower body) will undergo an MRI on Monday.
Analysis: The Hurricanes are still listing Ryan Murphy as day-to-day, so the MRI may only be for precautionary purposes. He'll sit out a second straight game Saturday against the Sharks.

Canes' Murphy Set To Miss Saturday's Game

News: Ryan Murphy (lower body) will not play Saturday against the Sharks.
Analysis: Ryan Murphy was unable to resume skating Saturday morning after exiting Thursday's game against the Coyotes. He'll be replaced in the lineup by Brett Bellemore.

Canes' Murphy Done With Lower-Body Injury

News: Ryan Murphy will not return to Thursday's game against the Coyotes due to a lower-body injury.
Analysis: Ryan Murphy appeared to twist his knee after taking a high stick, and had to be taken off the ice. The severity of the injury is a bit unclear at this point, but he will miss the remainder of Thursday's tilt at a minimum. The team should provide an update on his status at some point before their next game Saturday.

Canes' Murphy Finds Net In Loss

News: Ryan Murphy notched a power-play goal in Friday's shootout loss to the Blues.
Analysis: The goal was Ryan Murphy's first goal of the season. While his season point totals don't jump off the page, the 21-year-old's offensive trends do offer some encouragement. He enjoyed a three-game assist streak earlier this month and has attempted two or more shots in each of his last four contests.

Hurricanes Recall Murphy

News: Ryan Murphy has been recalled from AHL Charlotte, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Ryan Murphy, who has recorded five assists in 16 games with the Hurricanes, returns to the big club after a minor league stint during the NHL All-Star break that was capped by a three-assist effort in Monday's AHL All-Star Classic.

Canes' Murphy Assigned To AHL

News: The Hurricanes have assigned Ryan Murphy to AHL Charlotte, the team's official site reports,
Analysis: Since his recall on Dec. 30, the 21-year-old Ryan Murphy had recorded four assists in 10 games for Carolina, but he'll head to the AHL for now to see some ice time, with the big club not in action again until Jan. 27.

Canes' Murphy: Assists In Three Straight

News: Ryan Murphy chipped in an assist and three shots on goal in Tuesday's shootout win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: Ryan Murphy has picked up assists in three straight games, and has seen his minutes rise in accordance. He's currently holding down a second-pairing role and should be a lineup mainstay until his production starts to slow. It's probably too early to invest much into Murphy in most formats, but his pedigree as a former first-round pick certainly makes him a name worth tracking.

Canes' Murphy Notches First Points Since Recall

News: Ryan Murphy handed out two assists, went plus-2 and gathered two PIM in Thursday's win over Buffalo.
Analysis: He'd gone without a point in four games since being recalled from AHL Charlotte, but the 12th overall pick in 2011 possesses strong two-way potential and has shown terrific puck-moving ability at all levels.

Hurricanes Recall Murphy From AHL

News: Ryan Murphy was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Tuesday.
Analysis: The Hurricanes moved John-Michael Liles (illness) to IR in a corresponding move, allowing Ryan Murphy to join the club as a seventh defenseman. The 21-year-old Murphy was tied for Charlotte's team scoring lead with 17 points, and could see regular duty while he remains with the parent club.

Canes' Murphy Reassigned To AHL

News: Ryan Murphy was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Wednesday.
Analysis: Ryan Murphy proved his versatility last week, filling in at forward with Nathan Gerbe (lower body) and Patrick Dywer (lower body) banged up, but with both Gerbe and Dwyer seemingly close to returning and the team's defenseman relatively healthy, Murphy was deemed expendable. The 21-year-old Murphy has chipped in one assist and two penalty minutes in six game with the Hurricanes this season.

Canes' Defenseman Murphy Filling In At Forward

News: Ryan Murphy filled in at forward during Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Winnipeg, playing on the Cane's fourth line alongside Patrick Brown and Brad Malone. He saw ice time of 12:42 and recorded zero points along with a minus-1 rating.
Analysis: This comes as no surprise, as it's been widely reported that Ryan Murphy has spent at least one practice during the past couple of weeks playing a forward role. For now, the injury-riddled Canes seem content to patch up their lineup with whoever they have on hand, including an occasional defenseman like Murphy, rather than recalling forward help from the minors. Either way, this does nothing for Murphy's fantasy value, as he is used to seeing upwards of 20 minutes per night on the blue line. As a fourth-line forward, however, he will realistically only see 10-12 minutes per night at best.

Hurricanes' Murphy To Sit Out Friday

News: Ryan Murphy will be a healthy scratch for Friday's season opener against the Islanders, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: While the youngster will sit out the opener, coach Bill Peters said Ryan Murphy could enter the lineup Saturday, when the two teams will move their matchup to Long Island. He'd likely replace one of the team's veterans on the blue line, with Jay Harrison or Tim Gleason representing the most likely candidates to sit out.

Canes' Defenseman Murphy Seeing Time At Forward

News: Ryan Murphy filled in at forward at Tuesday's practice, and could see time there during Friday's season opener against the Islanders, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: With regular forwards Jordan Staal (broken leg) and Jeff Skinner (concussion) both on the shelf for the foreseeable future, the Canes are short on healthy bodies, and may opt to pull Ryan Murphy off the blue line and start him as a forward rather than call someone up from the minors. Murphy, whose specialty is manning the power play, would probably line up on one of the Canes' checking lines; however, if he spends enough time at forward he could eventually qualify for dual eligibility in some fantasy formats, which would give his overall value a boost. Keep an eye on this situation as it progresses, and don't be afraid to take a flyer on Murphy for those of you in deeper leagues.

Rookie Murphy Paces 'Canes To Win Over Isles

News: Ryan Murphy registered a goal and an assist - both on the power play - during Wednesday's 4-2 preseason win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Last season, Ryan Murphy played in all but eight of the Canes' first 47 games and was looking like he would be a regular member of the lineup. However, he subsequently suffered an upper-body injury in January, and spent most of the remainder of the season at AHL Charlotte. This season, Murphy is being given another shot at cracking the roster but will face stiff competition for a spot on the team's third defensive pairing. If he can keep putting up points in the preseason while still being defensively responsible in his own zone, he has a pretty good shot at making the team. As Tuesday's results will attest, Murphy is very adept with the man advantage and should see a boatload of minutes on the power play should he win himself a roster spot.

Hurricanes Return Murphy To Minors

News: Ryan Murphy was reassigned to AHL Charlotte on Thursday.
Analysis: The Hurricanes will let Ryan Murphy finish out the campaign at Charlotte with only three games remaining on the NHL schedule. Mike Komisarek will take his spot on defense.

Hurricanes Send Murphy To AHL

News: The Hurricanes have assigned Ryan Murphy to AHL Charlotte, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Ryan Murphy, who has recorded 12 points in 46 games with the big club to date, should be back with Carolina before long. With Charlotte this season, the promising young blueliner has recorded 18 points in 16 AHL games.

Hurricanes Will Use Murphy On Tuesday

News: Ryan Murphy (upper body) will be back in the lineup Tuesday against the Islanders.
Analysis: After Ryan Murphy made it through Monday's practice with no complications, coach Kirk Muller declared afterward that the defenseman wouldn't miss any further action. Look for him to replace Mike Komisarek in Tuesday's lineup.

Hurricanes' Murphy Practices Monday

News: Ryan Murphy (upper body) returned to practice Monday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Ryan Murphy has missed the last two games with the injury, but his participation in practice would seem to bode well for his availability Tuesday against the Islanders. Expect an update on his status following Tuesday's morning skate.

Canes' Murphy Leaves With Injury

News: Ryan Murphy left Tuesday's game vs. the Blue Jackets with an upper-body injury.
Analysis: The Hurricanes ruled him out of the game after the conclusion of the first period. Should Ryan Murphy be unavailable for the team's next game Friday in Chicago, Mike Komisarek would likely enter the lineup in his stead.

Hurricanes Recall Murphy

News: Ryan Murphy was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Thursday, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Justin Faulk's upper-body injury opens the door for Ryan Murphy to join the lineup for at least a handful of games. As one of the team's most promising young players, there would seem to be a good chance he sticks with the parent club the rest of the way. With the Hurricanes are on the periphery of the playoff race at the moment, it may make sense for coach Kirk Muller to let Murphy gain some experience in preparation for a full-time role on defense in 2014-15. Murphy provided two goals and nine assists in his 39 games with the Hurricanes earlier this season.

Hurricanes Assign Murphy To AHL Charlotte

News: The Hurricanes assigned Ryan Murphy to AHL Charlotte on Friday.
Analysis: Ryan Murphy has not played since Jan. 13, so the Hurricanes decided to send him down so that he could get in some game action during next month's Olympic break.
