Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Picks up helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy notched an assist, four shots on goal and two blocked shots in Friday's 3-2 win over the Oilers in Game 4.

Murphy had the primary assist on Brandon Saad's first-period tally. The 27-year-old Murphy picked up a helper in each of the last games of the series. He added eight shots, six blocks and six hits in four contests against the Oilers. Murphy had a career-best 19 points in 58 outings during the regular season, although his usage tends to be more defensive in nature.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy provided an assist in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Oilers in Game 3.

Murphy's shot attempt late in the third period deflected off of Oilers defenseman Ethan Bear's stick and then bounced off Jonathan Toews' shin and into the net. This put the Blackhawks ahead and ultimately helped them retake the series lead at 2-1. The assist is Murphy's first career playoff point.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Playing in exhibition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (groin) is taking part in Thursday's exhibition against the Blues, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Murphy hadn't been participating in practice recently because of the groin issue, but he wouldn't be in the lineup if the medical staff felt it was still a problem. Barring a setback of some kind in the next couple days, Murphy should be available for the start of the best-of-five series versus the Oilers on Saturday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (groin) wasn't a full participant in Sunday's practice, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Murphy has been dealing with a groin injury over the past several days and fully participated in practice Saturday, but he was limited Sunday. Head coach Jeremy Colliton said after practice that he wasn't sure whether Murphy would be ready for Game 1 against the Oilers on Saturday and stated that the team is "ramping him up slowly."

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (groin) will be a full participant in Saturday's practice, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Murphy has been dealing with a groin injury over the past week, but it looks like he's back to 100 percent ahead of Sunday's flight to Edmonton. The 27-year-old blueliner notched 19 points in 58 games during the regular season.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Bothered by groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy is dealing with a groin injury, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Murphy has been skating with a small group of teammates over the past few days, but he still hasn't fully recovered from his groin tweak. The Blackhawks are still over a week away from Game 1 of their qualifying round matchup with Edmonton, so as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks, Murphy should have plenty of time to get back to 100 percent before postseason play gets underway.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Resumes skating
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (undisclosed) was on the ice working on his conditioning Thursday, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.

Thursday marked the third straight day Murphy has skated after missing a handful of practices, so he appears to be on track to be ready for Chicago's qualifying round matchup with the Oilers. The American blueliner will occupy a top-four role against Edmonton.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Misses practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (undisclosed) didn't participate in Friday's practice, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.

Murphy was deemed "unfit to participate" ahead of Friday's on-ice session, but after being a full participant in the first four days of training camp, it's possible he was simply given the day off. Another update on the 27-year-old blueliner should be released once he's able to rejoin his teammates on the ice.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Snaps goal-scoring drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy scored his fifth goal of the year and had five shots in Tuesday's 6-5 loss to St. Louis. He also had two PIM.

Murphy scored with just over five minutes left in the first period to give the Blackhawks a 2-1 lead. It was his first goal since way back on Jan. 2 and halted a 20-game drought for the 26-year-old. Despite that lengthy skid, Murphy's fifth goals on the season are one shy of matching the career-high six he put up with Arizona in 2015-16. Tuesday's goal was also his 18th point of the year, a new personal high.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Such efforts have been rare from Murphy, who has 12 points, 71 hits and 71 blocks in 31 outings.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Slings helper Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy's at 10 points, 67 blocks, 66 hits and 53 shots on goal through 29 contests. He plays mostly a defensive role, but his non-scoring stats could make him a value option in DFS.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy scored a goal on two shots and chipped in with four blocks and three hits in a 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes on Tuesday.

Murphy had been held without a point in his first eight games this season, but got off the schneid with a wrister from the high slot late in the third period. Murphy has never eclipsed 17 points or six goals in an NHL season and can be left on the waiver wire.
