Chris Murphy, who led Soo Eagles of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League in scoring this past season, has committed to play for the University of Wisconsin-River Falls Falcons.
Eagles associate coach/general manager Bruno Bragagnolo confirmed Murphy’s commitment — which is effective the 2017-2018 season — to HockeyNewsNorth.com.
Murphy, a 6-foot-2, 185 lb. forward from the Detroit area, topped the Eagles scoring chart in 2016-2017 with 23 goals, 41 assists, 64 points in 52 regular-season games.
He will be joining his former Eagles teammate Brad Hofelich at Wisconsin-River Falls, which is a Division 3, National Collegiate Athletic Association school. Hofelich finished one point behind Murphy in scoring this past season.
