The Hurricanes had sent Murphy to Charlotte on Monday.
Murphy, Carolina's first-round pick (No. 12) in the 2011 NHL Draft, is expected to practice with the team on Wednesday. The Hurricanes open their regular season Friday night at home against the Detroit Red Wings.
Murphy is entering his first full professional season after four years with the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League. He was scoreless in four games with Carolina last season.
I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
