Murphy (lower body) won't play in Sunday's game, making it eight straight missed to close out the season.
The blueliner didn't have a particularly good campaign, only notching two points in 27 games, and ending on a rough note by missing time. Klas Dahlbeck will be in the lineup to replace him.
Murphy (lower body) is projected to be an injured scratch yet again Saturday, NHL.com reports.
We're still waiting for Murphy to live up to his lofty billing as Carolina's 12th overall pick from the 2011 draft. He's only generated six goals and 37 assists over 151 NHL games, and various injuries have been intrusive in his attempts to make an impact at hockey's highest level.
Murphy (lower body) will not play against the Red Wings on Tuesday.
Murphy has been irrelevant in his 27 appearances this season, tallying only two assists. Averaging 13:10 of ice time each game isn't promising for a defenseman as well, so this injury won't make or break any fantasy hockey championships.
Murphy, who's chronically been benched this season, will tag back into the lineup Friday for a home game against the Senators, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
The term "healthy scratch" is a nasty one when applied to fantasy hockey, and Murphy has done very little to inspire confidence in owners shopping for a defenseman. He's drawn into 11 of 56 games in 2016-17, with a pair of assists representing his meager point total on the season. With the Hurricanes highly unlikely to make the playoffs, there's not much risk in giving Murphy another chance -- after all, he was a first-round pick (12th overall) in the 2011 draft.
Murphy was a healthy scratch for the ninth straight game Sunday against the Maple Leafs.
With just 11 games under his belt, Murphy has had a tough time finding a regular spot in the lineup this season. He tends to be utilized more as an injury replacement, and rarely sees more than 14-15 minutes a game when he does suit up. Needless to say, Murphy's fantasy value is essentially zero at the present time.
