Honestly, he's probably about the average age of those competing in the BCHL. There's a misconception that these junior A leagues are full of 16 year olds, which isn't true at all. Reality is there are few kids that young in the BCHL, AJHL, and USHL. I'd say the majority of players are 18-20 in the BCHL, (I saw the stats on this) so to suggest he's that much older than his competition I think is a little off base. He's put up huge numbers for the last 2 seasons in that league. North Dakota's got some holes to fill in the lineup, so Murphy will have an opportunity to get some nice minutes this season if he does well.
