I believe after last night’s 4-1 defeat for the Milwaukee Admirals a bit of a laugh is needed. Who better to provide that laugh than the man that Kevin Fiala said is his pick for the funniest player on the Admirals roster, Trevor Murphy.
For those unfamiliar, Murphy was signed to a three-year entry level contract by the Nashville Predators in mid-September as an undrafted talent having played four-seasons in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) as a member of both the Windsor Spitfires and Peterborough Petes. At just 20-years of age he is the youngest defenseman of the Admirals 2015-16 season roster and has contributed 21 points (8 goals, 13 assists) in 33 games. So far, his rookie season highlight came on a night when he was tasked with helping the Admirals out by playing as a forward and scoring 6 points (3 goals, 3 assists) against the San Diego Gulls. That or his first professional fighting major that saw him bloody up Colin Smith in a decisive win. I’d take it he would pick the scoring game over the fisticuffs but let’s kick back and listen to him tell as much. Keyword Today: Clown College.
Editor’s Note: Apologies for the audio being pretty combative to the interview. This was done on an autograph day for the team so there was a lot of sticks being signed and tables being jostled around.
Cheers to Trevor Murphy for taking the time to do this interview and having a laugh. Reminder, my check list of players you’ve suggested is pretty bare so please comment down below with more suggestions!
