PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
Providence College men's hockey Head Coach Nate Leaman has announced the hiring of Kyle Murphy '13 as the Coordinator of Men's Ice Hockey Operations.
Murphy, a 2013 graduate of the College, returns to the Friars after captaining the squad during the 2012-13 season.
Last season, Murphy played professionally with the Manglerud Star in Oslo, Norway. Manglerud went 31-4-1-0 en route to a first-place finish in the First Division. Murphy played all 36 games, scoring 24 goals and adding 28 assists for 52 points as the Star earned promotion to the Eliteserien (Elite Division).
Murphy spent the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons with the Friars under Leaman. As a senior he led Providence back to the Hockey East playoffs as the Friars earned home ice for the Hockey East Quarterfinals for the first time in 10 seasons and made a second consecutive Hockey East Championship Semifinal appearance at the TD Garden.
In 2012-13, Murphy appeared in all 38 games, recording three goals and eight assists for 11 points. Two of his three goals were game-winning tallies. He was named the 2013 Derek Hines Unsung Hero Award Winner, as announced by the Hockey Commissioners Association (HCA).The award was established by the HCA in honor of former Army player Derek Hines, who was a "consummate team player and team builder." Hines played at Army from 1999-2003 and was a four-year letter-winner as well as a co-captain his senior season. He was killed in the line of duty on Sept. 1, 2005 in Afghanistan.
Prior to joining the Friars, Murphy spent the 2009-10 season with Notre Dame and the 2010-11 season with the Vernon Vipers of the BCHL. He also graduated from Shattuck St. Mary's High School in Faribault, Minn.
