A thread for every player: Ryan Murphy

Ryan Murphy

(rankings among Kitchener Rangers defensemen)

GP: 49 (out of 68)
Goals: 11 (2nd)
Assists: 43 (1st)
Points: 54 (1st)
PIM: 30 (5th)

Age: 19 (March 31, 1993)
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 176lb

Contract status: RFA in 2015
Current contract: 3yr, $2.775M ($1.344M in the NHL, $70K in the AHL)
Acquired: Drafted 12th overall in 2011

I'm a little worried about this season for Murphy. He is not AHL-eligible, doesn't have the frame or the defensive ability for the NHL, and won't benefit much from another year in juniors. This is one of those cases where the junior/pro rules really screw with a good player's development. I'm not sure I like where this is heading.
