QUICK SHOTS: Matt Murphy
Wednesday, December 20, 2017

In our first addition of "Quick Shots" we caught up with fan favourite Matt Murphy.

Goaltender Matt Murphy was a late addition to the Adelaide Adrenaline's 2017 roster but the import from Nova Scotia in Canada made quite the impression with fans and players. 



He was among leaders in save percentage and helped shore up Adelaide's defense. Among his highlights was a 62 save performance to defeat the CBR Brave on the road, and a mighty effort to win an emotional Adelaide Avalanche round. Currently, "Murph" or "The Maritime Monster" is in Toronto finishing his college degree. 

He took the time to answer a few questions. 

Q: What do you think of most when you think about your time in Adelaide?

Definitely the people. I met a lot of great individuals in Adelaide from teammates and members of the organization to the Adrenaline Junkies and members of the community. Easily the best part of my experience.

Q: When people ask you, "Murph! What was Australia like?!" What do you tell them?

A lot of people are surprised when I tell them that it was winter while I was there. It was cold!

But other than that, I tell them it was a lot of fun. A really good opportunity to have some cool experiences in places that I never thought I’d see.

Q: Would you ever consider coming back to Adelaide? 

For sure, I had an awesome experience playing in Adelaide last season.

Q: It was a tough year for Adelaide but we were in a lot of games? Do you think Adelaide has the potential to turn things around? Why?

Yes they do. There’s a lot of young kids in the organization that gained a lot of experience this season. They’re only going to get better as they get more and more opportunities to play in the AIHL.

Q: On to the personal questions, what is your favourite hockey memory?

My favorite memory is winning the Kent Cup with the Woodstock Slammers in my final season of junior hockey. We won in overtime of game 7 at home. It was a pretty cool way to end my junior career. 

Q: Who is your favourite hockey player? Was there an idol you looked up to?

Growing up I was a huge Patrick Roy (Montreal / Colorado) fan. Now, I’m a big fan of the way Carey Price (Montreal Canadiens) plays.

Q: What is the best piece of advice anyone has given you, in terms of hockey?

Relax and have fun. Its not worth playing if you don't enjoy it.
