    News

    Murphy (lower body) will be in the lineup for Thursday's regular-season opener against Pittsburgh, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Impact

    The former Coyote is expected to skate with Michal Kempny on Chicago's second pairing Thursday, and he'll also likely see time on the man advantage as a member of the Blackhawks' second power-play unit. Murphy isn't known for his offensive contributions, but he could break through the 20-point threshold for the first time in his career in 2017-18.

    News

    Coach Joel Quenneville indicated after Saturday's preseason finale that he believes Murphy will be fine despite suffering a lower-body injury during the contest, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.

    Impact

    Murphy required assistance to leave the ice during the contest, but it appears the issue may not be too serious. More information on the blueliner should arrive as the team's Opening Night contest against the Penguins on Thursday draws nearer, but Quenneville's comments suggest he should be good to go.
