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."

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

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
