Hurricanes send Murphy to AHL

The Carolina Hurricanes on Monday assigned defenseman Ryan Murphy to their American Hockey League affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers.

The No. 12 pick of the 2011 NHL Draft spent the past four seasons with the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League, totaling 220 points in 228 games. He made his NHL debut last season as an emergency recall, and while he didn't have a point, he averaged 21:03 of ice time per game.

"I got four games in with the Hurricanes and it was a bit unexpected, but great nonetheless," Murphy told NHL.com in September. "I learned a lot in just that little bit of time and then went back to my club team in Kitchener. I tried to keep that pace up."

Red Wings send Nyquist, Mrazek to AHL

The Detroit Red Wings have assigned forward Gustav Nyquist to Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League, according to a report by the Detroit Free Press.

Goaltender Petr Mrazek also was sent to Grand Rapids, and forward Darren Helm will be put on long-term injured reserve, according to the report.

Nyquist played in all 14 games for the Red Wings during the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs, but a number of offseason additions, plus the re-signing of Daniel Cleary earlier this month, created a glut of forwards on the Detroit roster.

Lightning send No. 3 pick Drouin to QMJHL

Jonathan Drouin, the No. 3 pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, will not begin his NHL career just yet.

The Tampa Bay Lightning announced their final roster moves before the start of the regular season, and Drouin has been sent to the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Drouin had 41 goals and 105 points in 49 regular-season games and 13 goals and 44 points in 21 postseason contests for the Mooseheads in 2012-13, partnering with No. 1 pick Nathan MacKinnon to form one of the top duos in junior hockey.

MacKinnon is not expected to go back to Halifax, so Drouin will need to find a new partner. He's almost certain to be a top player for Canada at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championships as well.

Kreider among final cuts for Rangers

The New York Rangers made their final cuts before the regular season Sunday, and forward Chris Kreider was among them.

Kreider saw exactly half of his ice time at even strength during the preseason with Rick Nash and Brad Richards, according to the line combinations tool at DobberHockey.com. It was the team's nominal top line during camp. The likely No. 1 center, Derek Stepan, was not practicing because he didn't have a contract, and wings Ryan Callahan and Carl Hagelin were still rehabbing injuries.

The 22-year-old Kreider was a breakout star in the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs, making his NHL debut and scoring five goals in New York's run to the conference finals. He had only two goals and one assist in 23 games during his first regular season with the Rangers in 2012-13.

Quote of the Day

I don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper after Steven Stamkos broke a long scoring drought and Tampa Bay's struggling power play scored four times in Game 2 at Montreal
