  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Activated off injured reserve

    Murphy (groin) has been taken off injured reserve ahead of Friday's matchup with Nashville.

    Murphy looks set to return to the lineup for the first time since Jan. 13 against Dallas, a stretch of 35 games on injured reserve. The defenseman will likely slot into Nikita Zaitsev's spot on the blue line, though that may depend on whether the Hawks decide to have Ethan Del Mastro make his NHL debut.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Not ready to return

    Murphy (groin) won't be available Wednesday against St. Louis, per Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Hopes to return Wednesday

    Murphy (groin) is hoping to rejoin the lineup against St. Louis on Wednesday, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Murphy won't be an option to face Dallas or Minnesota on Saturday or Sunday, respectively, but he seems to be nearing a return to action. The blueliner has been shelved since Jan. 13 versus the Stars, a stretch of 32 games on IR due to his groin problem. If Murphy can pick up just two more points, he will reach the 10-point threshold for the ninth consecutive campaign.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Remains week-to-week

    Murphy (groin) may not return before the end of the season, according to Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago.

    Murphy, who remains week-to-week, visited a specialist in Vancouver recently before resuming off-ice workouts. He hasn't played since Jan. 13, and Chicago has only 15 games left in the 2023-24 campaign. Murphy has eight points, 105 blocked shots and 106 hits in 43 appearances this season.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Still without timeline

    Murphy (groin) remains out indefinitely with no clear time frame to get back into action, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports Tuesday.

    Murphy has already been out of the lineup for the last 13 games and looks no closer to actually returning to the ice. With just one goal and three assists in his last 16 outings, few fantasy players will be anxiously awaiting his return. Still, the blueliner could offer some value in formats that utilize hits and blocks.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Lands on IR

    Murphy (lower body) was moved to injured reserve Monday, per CapFriendly.

    Murphy has now missed four straight games so he'll be eligible to return once healthy, which could be as early as Wednesday in Seattle. He was placed on injured reserve to open a roster spot for Nick Foligno (finger), who is set to return Monday against Vancouver. Murphy has eight points in 43 games this season.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Hopeful to return on road trip

    Murphy (lower body) won't play Monday in Vancouver but could return this week during Chicago's four-game road trip, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Murphy has already missed three games with a lower-body injury, though it sounds like he could be nearing a return later in the week. The 30-year-old blueliner has eight points (two goals, six assists) with 93 hits and 105 blocked shots this season. Jarred Tinordi will likely remain in the lineup until Murphy is ready to go.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Out Friday

    Murphy (lower body) will not dress Friday against the Islanders, Scott Powers of The Athletic reports.

    Murphy will miss a third straight game, but he's still considered day-to-day. Chicago's next game is Monday in Vancouver. Murphy has just eight points in 43 games this season.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Remains unavailable

    Murphy (lower body) will miss a second straight contest Thursday against the Sabres, NHL.com reports.

    Murphy's lower-body injury isn't believed to be overly serious, so he can be considered day-to-day for now. Either way, he's only picked up eight points through 43 contests this season, so fantasy managers shouldn't need to keep tabs on the 30-year-old defender's status.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Dealing with lower-body issue

    Murphy (lower body) won't play Tuesday against San Jose, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Murphy's lower-body issue isn't believed to be overly serious, so he likely won't be sidelined for long. With Murphy unavailable, Jarred Tinordi will draw into the lineup versus the Sharks.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Nets lone goal in loss

    Murphy scored a goal, added two hits and blocked three shots in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Jets.

    Murphy's two goals this season have come in the last 16 games, a span in which he's added three assists. He'll never be confused with Bobby Orr -- Murphy can chip in the occasional point, but he's much more of a shutdown defenseman who has been pressed into a larger role during Seth Jones' absence due to a shoulder injury, which is nearing an end. Murphy has eight points, 44 shots on net, 91 hits, 103 blocked shots, 40 PIM and a minus-19 rating through 42 appearances.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Contributes helper in overtime win

    Murphy recorded an assist, two shots on goal, two hits and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 2-1 overtime win over the Jets.

    Murphy snapped a six-game point drought with his assist on Connor Bedard's first-period marker. With three points in December, this has been Murphy's most productive month of the campaign. The stay-at-home blueliner has five points, 38 shots on net, 72 hits, 90 blocked shots, 36 PIM and a minus-15 rating through 34 appearances overall, so he's not much of an option for most fantasy formats.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Nets first goal this season

    Murphy netted a goal on four shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Capitals.

    Murphy cut Chicago's deficit to 4-2 late in the third period, ripping a one-timer past Darcy Kuemper. It's the first goal of the year for Murphy, who now has points in back-to-back contests following a 12-game scoreless streak. He's now up to four points (a goal and three assists) through 27 games this season. While Murphy should continue to see heavy usage in a top-four role, he shouldn't be counted on to provide much offense. He's yet to reach the 20-point threshold through 10 NHL seasons.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Picks up helper

    Murphy logged an assist, three blocked shots, two hits and two PIM in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Blues.

    Murphy helped out on a Jason Dickinson tally in the second period. The 30-year-old Murphy had gone 12 games without a point, posting a minus-9 rating with 22 hits and 31 blocked shots in that span. He's a true stay-at-home defenseman who is more of a mentor than a scoring leader for the Blackhawks. Murphy has three assists, 67 blocks, 55 hits, 28 PIM, 24 shots on net and a minus-14 rating over 26 appearances.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Dishes out five hits in loss

    Murphy didn't factor into the scoring in Wednesday's 3-1 road loss against the Bruins, but he delivered a game-high five hits.

    Murphy ended up with a minus-1 in on the night, and he didn't even attempt a shot. However, he was good for a pair of blocked shots and plentiful hits, which will be his calling card. Fantasy managers playing in deeper leagues rewarding those categories will want to keep an eye on the Chicago rearguard.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Provides seventh goal of 2022-23

    Murphy scored a goal in a 5-2 victory over Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

    Murphy opened the scoring midway through the second period. He has seven goals, 12 points, 163 hits and 158 blocks in 79 outings this season. Murphy hadn't recorded a point over his previous seven appearances, though he did contribute 12 hits and 14 blocks in that span.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Tallies in loss

    Murphy scored a shorthanded goal in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Vancouver.

    Murphy opened the scoring in the first period Sunday, beating Collin Delia with a wrister from the point while the Blackhawks were shorthanded. The goal is Murphy's first since Jan. 26, a stretch of 24 games, and just his fifth point in that span. The 30-year-old blueliner has six goals and 11 points through 71 games this season.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Back with club

    Murphy rejoined the Blackhawks at practice Monday after having been away for personal reasons, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Murphy is currently still mired in a 17-game goal drought dating back to Jan. 26 versus the Flames. During that slump, the 29-year-old Ohio native has recorded three assists, 10 shots and 36 hits while averaging 19:14 of ice time. Without much offensive upside, Murphy shouldn't be expected to offer more than mid-range fantasy value at best.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Not playing Friday

    Murphy (personal) will miss Friday's game in Florida, Ben Pope of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Murphy will also miss Saturday's tilt in Tampa Bay, as Filip Roos will replace him in the lineup. Murphy has five goals, 10 points, 131 hits and 125 blocked shots in 64 games this season.

  • Blackhawks' Connor Murphy: Picks up helper in loss

    Murphy recorded an assist versus the Red Wings on Wednesday.

    Murphy brought an eight-game pointless streak to a close with Wednesday's tally but still hasn't scored in 17 straight contests dating back to Jan. 26 versus Calgary. Considering the blueliner has just 10 shots during his slump, he shouldn't be expected to suddenly start producing at a high volume.
