The Carolina Hurricanes have summoned Mike Murphy.

Carolina is without goaltenders Cam Ward and Anton Khudobin, so Murphy will stick with the team until one of them returns or Carolina signs another netminder. Murphy has a 3.81 GAA and .873 save percentage in three AHL games this season. He's expected to backup Justin Peters for now.

Mike Murphy announced Tuesday that he is leaving for the KHL.

The 23-year-old netminder spent majority of the past season with Charlotte of the AHL. He played two games with the parent club, not allowing a goal in 36 minutes of work. Despite not allowing a goal, Murphy lost his only decision on Dec. 7 when Calgary’s Jarome Iginla scored into an empty net for what turned out to be the decisive goal in a victory over Carolina.

Mike Murphy hasn't gotten his first NHL start yet, but he has 36 minutes of playing time in two games.

Murphy has replaced a struggling Cam Ward twice in the Hurricanes' last three contests. On Tuesday, Murphy became the first goalie in NHL history to lose a game before allowing his first goal, thanks to Jarome Iginla's empty netter. On Friday, Murphy turned aside all seven shots he faced in a 4-2 loss.

Mike Murphy was given the loss in Tuesday's game against Calgary.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, he is the first netminder in NHL history to record an NHL loss before allowing an NHL goal. Murphy made two saves on two shots in about nine minutes of ice time, but he became the goalie of record when Jarome Iginla's empty net goal became the game winner after the Hurricanes netted a pair of tallies in the final minute of regulation. That's a pretty bizarre stat line for the 23-year-old keeper and one that he probably will never forget.

Mike Murphy served as Carolina's backup goalie on Tuesday.

He was recalled from the minors after Brian Boucher suffered a lower-body injury during Monday's practice.

Mike Murphy is having a successful run in the AHL playoffs and he might be in line to challenge for Carolina's backup goalie job next season.

He has a 1.73 goals-against average and a .945 save percentage in eight games with the Charlotte Checkers. Murphy and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins netminder Brad Thiessen are involved in an excellent duel in their Eastern Conference semifinal battle. The Checkers have a 3-1 series lead thanks to Murphy's 44-save, 1-0 shutout victory on Wednesday. He could give Justin Peters some competition in the fall at training camp, bot another year in the minors wouldn't be out the question either.
