      News: Mike Murphy will be recalled from AHL Charlotte on Friday, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
      Analysis: In the wake of Cam Ward sustaining a lower-body injury Thursday night that will keep him out for three-to-four weeks, Mike Murphy should immediately bring intrigue in deeper leagues that start multiple goalies. Though Justin Peters is expected to get the first crack at replacing Ward on a full-time basis, expect Murphy to get a long look as well with the team hoping one emerges as a hot goalie. However, Anton Khudobin could eventually displace either goalie from the No. 1 perch once he returns from injured reserve. Neither of the three will be a great starting option in shallower formats until somebody strings together some serviceable starts in Ward's absence.
