Connor Murphy was back in the Arizona lineup after sitting out the last two games as a healthy scratch.

The Coyotes first round pick and 20th overall in 2011, has two goals and four points in 28 games and although he does have some offensive upside, the Coyotes are strong on the blueline power play-wise with Keith Yandle and Oliver Ekman-Larsson so his effectiveness is limited at this time. If Yandle was to get dealt, as has been rumored, Murphy could have more fantasy relevance.

Look for Connor Murphy to return to the Arizona lineup on Saturday after missing two games with an upper body injury.
