RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Murphy played in 35 games in the OHL last season, delivering 26 points and 26 PIMs. The 19-year-old first-round pick from 2011 needs more development time so he will likely remain in the OHL for 2012-13.
Murphy, who will play at Miami University (Ohio) this season, hopes to show that he's fully recovered from a stress fracture in a back vertebrae. He showed a flash of offensive skills from the blue line with the U.S. National Development Team, but he's still a few years away from being considered as a potential fantasy candidate, even in keeper leagues.
