1 Comment

The Arizona Coyotes are playing much of tonight’s game in Edmonton with just five defensemen after Connor Murphy was sidelined early in the first period.

Murphy took a shoulder-to-shoulder hit from Oilers’ forward Tyler Pitlick and immediately went to the Arizona bench in some discomfort.

Another look:

The team is calling it an upper body injury for the 21-year-old blue liner.

Murphy has two goals and four points in 24 games while averaging 16:43 in ice time.
