Ryan Murphy might be exposed in the Las Vegas expansion draft.

Murphy would have needed to play in 70 NHL games over the last two seasons to be part of it though and right now he's 17 contests short of that with 19 games to go. There was a time when it looked like he wouldn't even come close to reaching that quota, but Carolina has been using him regularly since trading Ron Hainsey. Murphy was taken with the 12th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, but has struggled to establish himself with the Hurricanes. He's still just 23 years old though (24 on March 31), so he might turn things around and a move to Vegas, which would likely have a bigger role for him, might be the kind of opportunity he needs.

Now that the Carolina Hurricanes have dealt defenseman Ron Hainsey, we might see Ryan Murphy play regularly.

Murphy drew into the lineup on Friday for the first time in roughly a month. He still only logged 14:12 minutes of ice time, but at least now he might be more than the team's seventh defenseman. He has two assists in 12 games this season.

Ryan Murphy will indeed play on Friday against the Senators.

Ryan Murphy will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against Washington.

This will be his sixth consecutive game in the press box. The former first round pick just hasn't panned out the way Carolina hoped, so a change of scenery might eventually do him some good. Ty Rattie and Matt Tennyson will join him in the press box.

Ryan Murphy will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Flyers.
