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.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Matches career high in points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy picked up an assist, two shots on goal, two blocked shots and two PIM in Saturday's 8-4 win over the Flames.

Murphy now has 17 points through 46 games this season, the third time he's reached that level of production. He's having a career year, and the 26-year-old has added 108 blocks, 94 shots, 96 hits and a plus-4 rating. Murphy's solid defensive game could make him worth a look in deeper formats.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Records helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy supplied an assist, five shots on goal, two hits and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Oilers.

The helper snapped a five-game point drought for the defenseman. Murphy is up to 16 points, 89 shots, 104 blocks and 93 hits in 44 contests this season. He needs just one more point to match his career high of 17, which he achieved twice as a member of the Coyotes.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy provided two assists, four shots on goal, six blocked shots and three hits in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Jets.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Extends point streak to four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy collected an assist in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Red Wings.

Murphy left his point streak on the line late in the game before earning the secondary assist on Dominik Kubalik's empty-net goal with 20 seconds left in the third period. The defenseman added three blocked shots, two shots on goal, two hits and two PIM in a solid performance from a fantasy perspective. Such efforts have been rare from Murphy, who has 12 points, 71 hits and 71 blocks in 31 outings.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Riding modest three-game streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Murphy registered an assist, four blocked shots, two hits and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Flames.

Murphy helped out on a Dylan Strome goal in the second period. The defenseman has chipped in with a goal and four helpers in his last eight outings. 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.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Registers second goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy scored an empty-net goal in a 3-0 victory against the Stars on Tuesday.

It was his only shot on goal, but owners will take it, as Murphy now has two goals in his last four games. During that stretch, he's been getting a decent amount of pucks to the net with eight shots on goal. He has two goals with zero assists, a plus-2 rating and 21 shots on net in 12 contests this season.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Picks up first goal of year
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.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Returns from groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (groin) had one shot on goal and three blocks in Saturday's 7-2 win over Nashville.

After having spent the last 11 games on injured reserve, Murphy returned to the lineup Saturday and logged 19:35 of ice time, including some penalty-killing duty. Murphy does not have a point in his seven games this season and is not a fantasy option.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (groin) will return to the lineup for Saturday's road game against the Predators, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

Murphy has spent the last 11 games on injured reserve, but he's healthy again for the divisional matchup. The 26-year-old's return shouldn't concern fantasy owners, as he hasn't posted a point this year and had just 13 over 52 games last season.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Closing in on return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (groin) was a full participant at practice Tuesday, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports.

Murphy will be eligible to come off long-term injured reserve ahead of Saturday's matchup with Nashville, and his presence at practice Tuesday suggests he just might be ready to do so. Once given the green light, the 26-year-old blueliner, who's gone scoreless in six games this campaign, will return to a shut-down role for the Blackhawks.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Placed on LTIR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blackhawks placed Murphy (groin) on long-term injured reserve Wednesday.

Now that he's on LTIR, Murphy won't be eligible to rejoin the lineup until Nov. 13 against the Golden Knights. The Blackhawks recalled Dennis Gilbert from AHL Rockford in a corresponding move, so he'll round out the team's depth at defense for the foreseeable future.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Will miss several weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy is expected to be sidelined for several weeks with a groin injury, Mark Lazerus of The Athletic reports.

Murphy missed the first game of the campaign due to a groin injury, so it's safe to assume he aggravated the same issue during Tuesday's 2-1 overtime loss to Vegas. The 26-year-old's absence won't impact many fantasy lineups, but it will undoubtedly hinder Chicago's ability to defend, as he's probably been the team's best stay-at-home blueliner this season, averaging 21:44 of ice time while racking up 15 hits and seven blocked shots in five games. The Blackhawks may promote Dennis Gilbert from AHL Rockford to fill in while Murphy is on the shelf.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Ready for season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

As expected, Murphy (groin) will make his season debut Thursday against San Jose, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.

Murphy's return will bolster the Blackhawks' defensive prowess, but it won't move the needle in fantasy circles, as he hasn't scored more than 17 points in a single season since becoming a full-time NHLer in 2014-15. He's expected to skate with Slater Koekkoek on Chicago's third pairing against the Sharks.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Expects to be ready Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (groin) said he should be ready for Thursday's game versus the Sharks, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports.

Murphy still needs to get the all clear from the medical staff, but he feels ready for the Blackhawks' home opener. The 26-year-old blueliner will need to be lifted from IR before he can get into the lineup. Fantasy owners in season-long leagues shouldn't be concerned either way, as Murphy hasn't surpassed 17 points in a single season.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Surfaces on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (groin) will begin the 2019-20 season on injured reserve.

The Blackhawks will take on the Flyers in Prague for their regular-season opener Friday, and then won't play again until Oct. 10 against San Jose, so it's quite possible that Murphy only ends up missing a single contest due to his groin injury. Either way, the stay-at-home blueliner has never tallied more than 17 points in a single season since becoming a full-time NHLer in 2014-15, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to keep tabs on his status.

Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Dealing with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy (undisclosed) may not play in Friday's season-opener versus the Flyers, Tracey Myers of reports.

The Blackhawks are currently in Europe as part of the NHL Global Series, but Murphy hasn't skated yet on the trip. They'll kick off the regular season with a game against the Flyers in the Czech Republic, and Murphy's not a lock to be in the lineup. It's not clear exactly what's bothering him. If he can't go, he'll have an extended rest ahead of the Blackhawks' next contest on Oct. 10 versus the Sharks.
