  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Finds twine in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/29/19) Murphy scored a goal and added six blocked shots and four hits in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Sharks.

    Murphy has picked up 13 points in 47 games this year, the best scoring rate he's shown in his career. He's had a solid March, with five points, 28 hits and 32 blocks over 13 appearances. The defender may have some appeal in deeper formats, but can otherwise be safely left off of fantasy rosters.

    Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Racking up blocks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/28/19) Murphy has registered 20 blocked shots and 23 hits in his last 12 contests.

    Murphy will continue to be a physical force for the Blackhawks down the stretch, but his lack of offensive upside -- eight points in 34 appearances this campaign -- will keep him off the radar in most fantasy formats.

    Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Standing out defensively

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/25/19) Murphy has gone scoreless in his last 12 contests, but he's managed to post a plus-2 rating while averaging 19:40 of ice time over that span.

    The Blackhawks are allowing an average of 3.71 goals per game this campaign, good for second worst in the NHL, so the fact that Murphy has managed to register a positive plus-minus rating over the last month in spite of his team's defensive struggles is impressive in and of itself. The 25-year-old blueliner will look to keep chugging along when Chicago returns to action next Friday against the Sabres.

    Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Stands out in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/24/18) Murphy scored a goal and added an assist Sunday in a 6-3 loss to the Panthers.

    Murphy has registered points in his last three games, scoring once and adding three assists over that span. The 25-year-old has been limited to nine games this season but does have 5 points in those contests. While he's enjoyed a hot start to his season, Murphy's fantasy value is compromised by the fact that he rarely, if ever, gets to play with the man advantage.

    Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Activated off IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/8/18) The Blackhawks activated Murphy (back) off injured reserve Saturday.

    Murphy has yet to play this season due to a back injury, so the Blackhawks will likely limit his minutes over the next few contests to allow him to get up to speed before handing him a full workload. The American blueliner's return to action will undoubtedly help shore up Chicago's leaky defense, but it will likely go unnoticed in most fantasy circles, as he's only totaled 31 points in 153 games over the past two seasons.
