The Stena Line Belfast Giants are pleased to announce the signing of Darcy Murphy for the 2017/18 Elite League season. The 24 year old forward from Ontario, Canada joins the Giants after a season split with the the ECHL’s Tulsa Oilers and the Manitoba Moose of the AHL.
However, although new to the Giants as well as the Elite League, Murphy will not be making his first appearance in Belfast having played twice for Colgate University in the inaugural NI Connections Friendship Four tournament in 2015.
Darcy spent four years in the NCAA with Colgate University, icing 146 times and posting 48 goals and 42 assists, good for 90 points. In his senior year, Murphy was awarded the position as Assistant Captain after winning the Rob Ries Award for his inspiration and leadership on the team.
Prior to turning pro, Murphy skated for two seasons with the Wellington Dukes of the OJHL where he helped the team to a championship and posted the most goals in the league with 66 as well as 61 assists good for 127 points in 98 games played.
With four years of college hockey at Colgate University behind him, Murphy adapted quickly to the professional game. He joined the ECHL’s Elmira Jackals straight from university, posting two goals and an assists in eight games. During Murphy’s first full professional season in 2016/17, he posted 19 goals and 15 assists, good for 34 points in 63 games played.
