The 25 year old forward from Ontario, Canada makes it two seasons in-a-row with the Giants after a successful 2017/18 season in teal, helping the organisation to a ninth major trophy with the Challenge Cup victory.
Although Murphy was new to the Giants and the Elite League in 2017/18, it was not his first appearance in Belfast having played for Colgate University in the inaugural Friendship Four tournament in 2015.
Darcy, whose signing was made possible by Ulster University, will continue to wear #15 for the Giants and in the 2017/18 played 67 games, scoring 33 goals and adding 25 assists, good for 58 points. Murphy posted three game winning goals and collected seven man of the match awards – joint first on the team.
Prior to joining Belfast – Murphy spent four years in the NCAA with Colgate University, icing 146 times and posting 48 goals and 42 assists, good for 90 points. In his senior year, Murphy was awarded the position as Assistant Captain after winning the Rob Ries Award for his inspiration and leadership on the team.
He then joined the ECHL’s Elmira Jackals straight from university, posting two goals and an assists in eight games. During Murphy’s first full professional season in 2016/17, he posted 19 goals and 15 assists, good for 34 points in 63 games played.
