  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Resumes skating

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11:58 am ET) Murphy (back) skated on his own prior to Tuesday's practice, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.

    Murphy's definitely trending in the right direction, but he'll likely need to log several full practices with his teammates before rejoining the lineup. The 25-year-old blueliner hasn't tasted game action since last season, so the Blackhawks may opt to send him on a conditioning stint to get him up to speed once he's been given a clean bill of health.

    Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Takes twirl on ice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/8/18) Murphy (back) did some stick work on the ice ahead of Thursday's practice session, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.

    Murphy didn't join the team for practice, nor was he even in full gear while getting on the ice, so it seems he is unlikely to be cleared to return in the short term. Once the blueliner is given the green light to return to action, he will probably be sent down to the minors to work on getting back up to speed.

    Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Headed to IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/3/18) The Blackhawks placed Murphy (back) on injured reserve Wednesday, Tracey Myers of NHL.com reports.

    Murphy is expected to be sidelined until mid-November at a minimum, so this move hardly comes as a surprise. His prolonged absence will test the Blackhawks' depth at defense, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as his lack of offensive upside keeps him off the radar in most formats.

    Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Could miss up to 12 weeks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/19/18) Murphy could be sidelined for up to 12 weeks due to his back injury.

    Blackhawks team physician Dr. Michael Terry released a statement regarding Murphy's status Wednesday, saying "Connor will have a period of six weeks during which he will be off the ice. He will undergo further testing at that time to determine if it is appropriate for him to begin more physical activity or require an additional four weeks of rest. This puts Murphy's overall timeline at approximately eight to twelve weeks before returning to the lineup." This news won't affect many fantasy drafts, as Murphy's lack of offensive upside keeps him off the radar in most formats, but it could pave the way for Henri Jokiharju, Chicago's first-round selection from the 2017 draft, to make the Opening Night roster. Another update on Murphy's status should be released once he's reevaluated in late October.

    Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Sidelined for eight weeks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/14/18) Murphy (back) will be out for approximately eight weeks.

    The news comes from team physician Dr. Michael Terry. Averaging over 16 minutes of ice time per game in 2017-18, the right-shooting defenseman tallied 14 points in 76 games. Given the diagnosis, the 25-year-old is likely to miss the first two months of the 2018-19 season. Even when healthy, his fantasy value is minimal.
