  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Poised to miss final three games

    Murphy (concussion) is not expected to be back for Chicago's last three contests of the year, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Murphy has been out of action since mid-March, so the decision to withhold him from the last three games of the season shouldn't come as a surprise. When healthy, the 29-year-old blueliner managed 10 points in his 57 contests and has never reached the 20-point mark in his career. As such, fantasy players shouldn't be expecting much out of him heading into next season.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Surfaces on IR

    Murphy (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

    Murphy is still in the NHL's concussion protocol and remains without a concrete timetable for his return. Rookie Alex Vlasic will likely hold onto a spot in the lineup until Murphy is given the green light to rejoin the lineup.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Ruled out Tuesday

    Murphy (concussion) will be unavailable against Boston on Tuesday, Carter Baum of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

    Murphy is still in the league's concussion protocols and will be sidelined versus the Bruins. The blueliner has just two points in his last 15 outings despite averaging over 20 minutes of ice time over that stretch. As such, few fantasy players figure to be impacted by the Ohio native's absence. In his stead, Erik Gustafsson and Riley Stillman will make up the third pairing.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: In concussion protocol

    Murphy missed Monday's practice session after being placed in the NHL's concussion protocols, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Murphy should probably be considered a long shot to be cleared in time for Tuesday's clash with the Bruins, though he hasn't officially been ruled out yet. If he does miss out, Murphy's spot in the lineup will almost certainly go to Erik Gustafsson, while Caleb Jones could see a significant uptick in ice time.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Traveling home with team

    Murphy (upper body) will return to Chicago with the Blackhawks after leaving Saturday's game versus the Senators, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.

    Murphy didn't go to the hospital after being stretchered off the ice Saturday, so it sounds like he avoided a worst-case scenario. The defenseman will likely be evaluated further once the Blackhawks are back home, so another update on his status may not surface for a day or two. He'll be questionable for Tuesday's game versus the Bruins.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Stretchered off ice

    Murphy (upper body) was stretchered off the ice in the first period of Saturday's game versus the Senators, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Murphy took a hard hit from Parker Kelly, which saw Murphy's head crash into the boards. The fact that Murphy was stretchered off is not a good sign, though he was responsive as he left the ice. More information on his status may be available in interim head coach Derek King's postgame press conference.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Contributes helper in win

    Murphy logged an assist, four hits, four PIM, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 8-3 win over the Ducks.

    Murphy had the secondary helper on Brandon Hagel's tally early in the second period. This was just Murphy's second assist in his last 13 games. The 28-year-old blueliner is more of a physical presence, and he's at 10 points, a career-high 147 blocked shots, 126 hits, 45 PIM, 71 shots on net and a minus-13 rating through 55 outings.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Spoils Halak's shutout bid

    Murphy scored a goal on three shots, levied three hits and blocked five shots in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Canucks.

    Murphy tallied at 13:01 of the third period to get the Blackhawks on the board, but Chicago never pulled even. The 28-year-old defenseman has gotten on the scoresheet in his last two games after snapping a seven-game point drought. Murphy's up to eight points, 114 blocked shots, 95 hits, 50 shots on net, 29 PIM and a minus-9 rating in 42 contests overall. His fantasy value is limited to formats that reward his work in the physical categories.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Generates helper in loss

    Murphy notched an assist, three hits, three blocked shots, two shots on net and two PIM in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Coyotes.

    Murphy had the secondary helper on Kirby Dach's second-period tally. The 28-year-old Murphy had gone six games without a point entering Thursday. The American blueliner remains more of a defensive presence with five points, 76 blocks, 72 hits, 27 PIM and a minus-15 rating in 31 outings overall.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Good to go

    Murphy (concussion) will return to the lineup for Thursday's clash with the Canadiens, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Murphy will likely slot into a top-four role following his three-game absence. The 28-year-old defender has picked up two points through 22 contests this season.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Remains unavailable

    Murphy (concussion) won't play Tuesday versus the Rangers, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Although Murphy won't play Tuesday, he's expected to join the Blackhawks for their upcoming two-game road trip, so he should be ready to return sooner rather than later. The 28-year-old blueliner has picked up two points through 22 contests this season.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: In concussion protocol

    Murphy is in concussion protocol after exiting Thursday's game against Washington, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.

    If he has a concussion, Murphy could miss a handful of games. The defenseman, who has tallied two points while averaging 21:44 this season, should be considered day-to-day until more updates about his condition become available.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Exits after hard hit

    Murphy (undisclosed) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Capitals.

    Murphy was rocked by an Alex Ovechkin hit in the second period and didn't return to the game. The 28-year-old blueliner's departure leaves the Blackhawks to play the third period with five defensemen. Murphy's status for Saturday's game versus the Rangers will likely be determined in the coming days.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Adds helper in win

    Murphy registered an assist and three blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    Murphy earned his first point since he scored a goal versus the Avalanche on Opening Night. The 28-year-old blueliner is not known for his offense, but this is a slow scoring pace even by his standards. He's been solid from a physical standpoint with 37 hits, 35 blocks and 12 PIM. With just 12 shots on net and a minus-12 rating in 16 games, he's not going to win over many fantasy managers.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Buries goal in loss

    Murphy scored a goal on three shots, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Avalanche.

    Murphy brought the Blackhawks within two goals with his third-period marker. The 28-year-old has long been a solid defender, logging 100-plus blocked shots in six of the last seven years. He signed a four-year contract extension in August, so it appears he'll be part of the Blackhawks' top-four blueliners for awhile, but his limited scoring potential will likely prevent him from widespread fantasy relevance.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Inks four-year extension

    Murphy signed a four-year, $17.6 million contract extension with the Blackhawks on Tuesday.

    Murphy has developed into the Blackhawks' best all-around defenseman over the past three seasons, picking up 13 goals, 34 helpers, a plus-15 rating, 349 hits and 352 blocks while averaging 20:57 of ice time through 160 contests. The 28-year-old blueliner should continue to rack up plenty of hits and blocks while posting a favorable plus-minus rating over the next four seasons, but he likely won't produce much more than 20 points over the course of a full 82-game campaign.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Scores with man advantage

    Murphy scored a power-play goal on two shots in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Panthers.

    Murphy got the Blackhawks on the board at 15:19 of the second period. The 28-year-old defenseman doesn't usually receive power-play time -- he was only on the ice because a Radko Gudas penalty was about to expire. Murphy is up to three goals, 14 points, 74 shots on net, 106 blocked shots and 91 hits through 45 contests. His defense-first approach often suppresses his value in most fantasy formats.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Slides assist in win

    Murphy produced an assist, six blocked shots, four hits and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Stars.

    Murphy had the secondary helper on Kirby Dach's opening tally in the first period. Aside from the assist, the 28-year-old Murphy was as steady as ever in the physical metrics. The blueliner is up to 12 points, 83 blocked shots, 75 hits and a plus-4 rating through 34 appearances. He plays a noticeable all-around role on the top pairing.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Logs helper Thursday

    Murphy produced an assist, three hits, three blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Hurricanes.

    Murphy's shot attempt in the third period was deflected in by Dylan Strome to tie the game at 3-3. With four assists in his last six games, Murphy is getting involved on offense lately. The 28-year-old defenseman has 11 points, 76 blocked shots, 69 hits and a plus-3 rating in 32 appearances overall. He'll have some appeal in deeper formats that reward non-scoring production.
