  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Contributes across the statsheet

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/18) Murphy averaged 16:22 of ice time throughout 2017-18, putting up two goals and 12 assists throughout the campaign.

    Although Murphy has now logged between 12 and 17 points each of his last three NHL seasons, he's really found his niche with a solid all-around game. His 109 shots on goal ranked third on the team among defensemen -- perhaps alluding he was robbed in the goal department -- and Murphy also led the blue liners in hits (138), and was also third in blocked shots (103). The 25-year-old was only scratched in three games as well after October, and figures to be a steady piece of Chicago's blue line going forward. Murphy is quick on his feet and a strong skater, so perhaps another season learning Chicago's system will help him move up his points total.

    Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Sees Sunday's game from press box

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/7/18) Murphy was a surprise scratch Sunday.

    He hadn't been scratched since late October, but with the return of Jan Rutta, the Hawks have eight defenders that can play in the NHL. Murphy could see a few more scratches in the short term as he cycles through the lower pairing.

    Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Goal drought reaches 15 games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/13/17) Murphy has failed to find the back of the net in 15 consecutive outings.

    During his goalless stretch, Murphy has managed to compile four assists, a plus-7 rating and 34 hits. Not exactly an offensive powerhouse -- he has never reached the 20-point mark in his career -- fantasy owners probably shouldn't be expecting to find the blueliner's name on the scoresheet on a nightly basis.

    Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Slow start with new team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/3/17) Murphy has gone scoreless in 10 games with the Blackhawks this season.

    The former Coyote has brought some physicality to Chicago's lineup, registering 19 hits in 10 contests, but his complete lack of offensive production will keep him from being a viable option in any season-long fantasy format this campaign.

    Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Ready for Opening Night

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/5/17) Murphy (lower body) will be in the lineup for Thursday's regular-season opener against Pittsburgh, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    The former Coyote is expected to skate with Michal Kempny on Chicago's second pairing Thursday, and he'll also likely see time on the man advantage as a member of the Blackhawks' second power-play unit. Murphy isn't known for his offensive contributions, but he could break through the 20-point threshold for the first time in his career in 2017-18.
