Cory Murphy (born February 13, 1978 in Kanata, Ontario) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

Undrafted, Murphy played collegiate hockey with Colgate University. Murphy then played five seasons in SM-liiga, the top professional ice hockey league in Finland; two for Blues Espoo, two for Ilves Tampere and in 2006–07 for HIFK Helsinki. In the 2003–04 season with Ilves, he was chosen to the series' all-star team. In the 2006–07 season with HIFK, he was awarded Kultainen kypärä for best player in the league, as well as Lasse Oksanen trophy for best player of the season during regular season play and Pekka Rautakallio trophy for best defenseman of the season. Murphy was a member of the 2007 Canadian IIHF World Championship team that won gold in a 4-2 win against Finland in Moscow.

On March 27, 2007, Murphy signed a two-year National Hockey League contract with Florida Panthers. Murphy's first NHL goal was scored October 6, 2007 against Kevin Weekes of the New Jersey Devils.

In the 2008–09 season, Cory played seven games for the Panthers whilst bothered by a re-occurring shoulder injury. Murphy was sent to affiliate, the Rochester Americans, for a two-week conditioning stint before being recalled by the Panthers on January 15, 2009. Murphy was subsequently claimed off re-entry waivers by the Tampa Bay Lightning on January 19, 2009. On July 17, 2009, he was signed by the New Jersey Devils to a two-way contract.
