Larry Murphy Returns To Fox Sports Detroit

02/14/2019 at 9:40am EST

from FoxSports Detroit,

FOX Sports Detroit is thrilled to announce the return of former National Hockey League defenseman Larry Murphy as a game and studio analyst for the remainder of the 2018-19 Red Wings season. Murphy’s first appearance will be tonight on Red Wings Live at 7 p.m. He will return to the booth alongside Ken Daniels on March 2 as a game analyst.

Murphy replaces Darren Eliot, who is moving on to become the vice president of hockey programming and facility operations for the Vegas Golden Knights.

Murphy’s 21-year NHL career included four Stanley Cup championships. He was part of the only two NHL teams to win back-to-back titles during the decade, the Penguins in 1991 and 1992 and the Red Wings in 1997 and 1998. Murphy was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2004. Finishing his career with 1,216 points, Murphy is currently the fifth highest-scoring defenseman in NHL history.

He also suited up for the L.A. Kings, Minnesota North Stars, Pittsburgh Penguins, Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals.

“I’m extremely happy to be back with FOX Sports Detroit,” Murphy said. “The fans in Detroit have been incredible. Detroit is home, and I’m excited to get started.”

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
