Two Canes Prospects Earn OHL Honors
A pair of recent Hurricanes' draft choices were honored over the weekend, as forward Chris Terry of the Plymouth Whalers and goaltender Mike Murphy of the Belleville Bulls each won Ontario Hockey League Player of the Month awards.  Both attended Carolina's training camp this fall.

With 15 points in 10 December games, Terry, 19, continued the offensive success he's been having since the Hurricanes drafted him in the fifth round of the 2007 draft.  He currently has 37 points in just 27 game this season, which follows his breakout 101-point season last year.

Murphy's numbers were already stellar when the Hurricanes chose him in the sixth round of their most recent draft this summer, and this year is no different.  He posted a 5-2-0-0 record with a 1.72 goals-against average in December and leads the OHL in goals-against average (2.00) and save percentage (.944).  Although Belleville is one of the better teams in the league, only two other goaltenders have faced more shots than Murphy.

Pete Krupsky, Director of Communications for the Whalers, was nice enough to send along two interviews that he conducted with the players.  Here they are: Chris Terry | Mike Murphy
