New Jersey Calls Up Tyler Eckford; Murphy to Lowell

The New Jersey Devils on Wednesday announced that they have recalled defenseman Tyler Eckford from Lowell. Defenseman Cory Murphy was assigned to the Devils' top AHL affiliate.

Eckford, 24, is tied for second on Lowell's scoring list with 15 points (5g-10a) in 18 games, and fourth in the AHL among defensemen.

He was named the Reebok/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending Nov. 15, 2009, after notching two goals, five assists and a plus-6 rating in three games. Lowell tied a franchise record by extending their winning streak to five games.

The 6-1, 200-lb., Vancouver native was New Jersey's fifth choice, 217th overall, in the 2004 Entry Draft, and was signed by the club on March 18, 2008.

Murphy, 31, has tallied two goals and one assist in 11 games this season with New Jersey. He was assigned to Lowell on Oct. 20 after clearing waivers, and was recalled on Oct. 26. after collecting two assists in four AHL games.

15 pts. in 18gms for a d-man is damn good.
Hopefully he can produce for the big club and keep a spot.

Unfortunately they have 3 guys that already play Corrente's style in White, Salvador and Fraser. I'm hoping that with he and Eckford on the team now he'll get a chance to play a little till Oduya and Martin come back.
I'm a complete player, my goals and fights are equally as ugly.
