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 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."

Murphy, 20, also had two assists in three games with the Checkers in 2012-13.

Quote of the Day

Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
