Just wondering if the Coyotes will choose to accelerate Connor Murphy's development like they did with Keith Yandle. Yandle went from prep school hockey to the Q for one year before jumping to the AHL aged 19.
I think Murphy could also do the same at age 19 having been drafted out of the USNTDP.
Normally I'd advocate keeping him in juniors to try and stay healthy and "develop" for a year.. but if he's good enough, why not do the same as Yandle? He certainly didnt struggle in the OHL with 26 points from 35 games. With his medical history Murphy's never going to be a classic slow burn / development guy playing a ton of games.
