NHL Draft Results: Ryan Murphy Selected By The Carolina Hurricanes

With the 12th pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, the Carolina Hurricanes select Ryan Murphy, a defenseman from the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League.

Murphy is a pretty small, under-6-foot-tall defenseman from Kitchener, and his offensive game is what makes him. He's a power play quarterback, can skate with the best of them in the OHL and is good on the breakout. He lacks some skill in his own end, and surely some of that has to do with his size.

In SB Nation's 2011 NHL Mock Draft, Murphy went No. 9 overall to our Boston Bruins bloggers at Stanley Cup of Chowder.
