Minnesota Wild General Manager Paul Fenton today announced the National Hockey League (NHL) club has agreed to terms with defenseman Ryan Murphy on a one-year, two-way contract ($650,000/$275,000).

 

Murphy, 25 (3/31/93), posted five points (2-3=5) and set career highs with 16 penalty minutes (PIM) and a plus-8 rating in 21 games with Minnesota in 2017-18, also appearing in his first career Stanley Cup Playoff game with Minnesota. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound native of Aurora, Ont., added 28 points (4-24=28) and 30 PIM in 48 games with the Iowa Wild of the American Hockey League (AHL).

 

Murphy has totaled 42 points (8-34=42) and 54 PIM in 172 games during parts of six NHL seasons with Carolina (2012-17) and Minnesota (2017-18), while totaling 94 points (14-80=94) and 70 PIM in 137 AHL contests with Charlotte (2012-17) and Iowa (2017-18). The right-shot defenseman was originally selected by Carolina in the first round (12th overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft and signed as a free agent with Minnesota on July 1, 2017.
