Connor Murphy didn't participate in Tuesday's game due to an illness.

Chris Summers was inserted into the Coyotes' lineup as a result. The Coyotes don't play again until Friday, so Murphy has a few days to recover before he's in danger of missing another game.

"Everyone dreams about playing in a place as nice as this," Connor Murphy said of Columbus' Nation Wide Arena. From 2002-10, Murphy lived in Columbus and skated with the injured players while his father, Gord, was the Blue Jackets' assistant coach.

"It will be pretty surreal going out for warm-ups," Murphy said. "It's something you don't picture happening growing up but it's a pretty cool opportunity." The nearly 22 year old defender is expected to skate with Andrew Campbell to make Arizona's third defensive pairing. Neither have much of any fantasy value this season.

Connor Murphy scored a goal in a 4-3 shootout loss against Philadelphia Tuesday night.

Murphy has three goals and six points in 42 games in 2014-15. Although he does very little offensively, it is worth noting that he has recorded 77 hits and 81 blocked shots this season.

Connor Murphy will face his father Gord Murphy, the Flyers' assistant coach on Tuesday night.

Gord Murphy played 14 seasons, including his first three and a half with Philadelphia starting in 1988-89. They were some of his most productive seasons in an otherwise unspectacular career during an era of offensive-defensemen in the 90's. Connor has no fantasy value at this time, but he was born while Gord played for Florida in 1993.

Connor Murphy will draw back into the Coyotes' lineup on Tuesday night.

The young defender isn't quite fantasy viable just yet as has just 12 points and 23 PIMs through 57 career games.

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.

Connor Murphy will be a healthy scratch on Saturday night as Chris Summers fills in.

In eight games this season Murphy has just one point, and after being benched for half the Nashville game, he's clearly not doing enough to impress Coach Tippett whose trying to keep his squad from descending into madness.

Connor Murphy played Saturday night after being out with an upper-body injury.

Murphy missed the last two games with the injury, one he sustained on a hit from Oilers forward Tyler Pitlick on Monday. He played 14:40 and had a hit in the Coyotes' loss to the Bruins.

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

Murphy was selected 20th overall in the 2011 Draft and this is his first real shot in the NHL as the defenseman has two goals and four points in 25 games. He does have offensive upside but he is not worth taking a chance on this season fantasy-wise.

Connor Murphy (upper body) is questionable for Thursday's game against Los Angeles.

Murphy was hurt during Monday's game and wasn't available Tuesday as a result. He doesn't have any fantasy value in standard leagues.

Connor Murphy (upper body) wasn't available for Tuesday's game against Calgary.

Murphy sustained the injury during Monday's contest. He should be regarded as day-to-day for now. Murphy has two goals and four points in 25 contests in 2014-15.

Connor Murphy exited Monday's game against Edmonton with an upper-body injury.

Murphy left the game early in the first period after he took a hit from Oilers' forward Tyler Pitlick. He is day-to-day right now. The 21-year-old has four points in 25 games this season.

Conner Murphy had a goal and an assist but it wasn't enough as the Coyotes lost 4-3 to the Dallas Stars on Tuesday.

Mikkel Boedker and Joe Vitale scored the other two goals for the Coyotes in this back and forth affair. Arizona out-shot Dallas 37-34 on the night but was robbed on numerous attempts by Kari Lehtonen.
