Murphy had 10 assists in 35 games last season for the Hurricanes so don't expect a lot this season. Oct 23 - 7:08 AM

Ryan Murphy (flu-like symptoms) practiced with the Hurricanes on Friday.

Ryan Murphy (flu-like symptoms) will miss Friday's preseason game.

Murphy also didn't practice with Carolina on Thursday, though it sounded like that was mostly for quarantining reasons as he still worked out away from the team. Either way, more than his illness, the biggest issue he faces is the steep competition for the defensemen spots on Carolina. "It’s make-or-break time," Murphy said. "The days are gone when you might get away with a few things. It’s nerve-wracking for sure. This is a big year for me. I really want to show everyone how I can play and what I’m capable of." To that end this illness is unfortunately timed, but Carolina will play in another four exhibition games beyond Friday's, so there should be other opportunities for him.
