RALEIGH, NC—The Canadian Hockey League this weekend announced that Carolina Hurricanes 2008 draft pick Mike Murphy was named the league’s winner of the ADT Goaltender of the Year award, while free-agent Hurricanes signee Matthew Pistilli was named the Home Hardware Humanitarian of the Year. The CHL awards honor the top players and coaches in 10 categories across all three leagues that encompass the CHL, the world’s top developmental league for players ages 16-20 – the Ontario Hockey League, the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and the Western Hockey League.

Murphy, 20, finished 2008-09 with a 40-9-2-2 record for the Bellville Bulls of the OHL, and league-leading figures in goals-against average (2.08) and save percentage (.941). He had five shutouts and limited Belleville’s opponents to two or fewer goals in 36 of his 54 games played, helping the Bulls clinch first place in the OHL’s Eastern Conference. The Hurricanes selected Murphy (5’11”, 161 lbs.) in the sixth round, 165th overall, in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He signed a three-year, entry-level contract with Carolina on March 18, and is expected to begin his professional career in the 2009-10 season. Hurricanes netminder Cam Ward won the CHL Goaltender of the Year award in 2003-04, his final year of junior hockey.

Pistilli, 20, was a major contributor to the Shawinigan, Que., community in 2008-09, and distinguished himself by visiting underprivileged children, donating his personal tickets to every Cataractes home game and ensuring that the children received VIP recognition as his guests. He participated in local school activities, fundraising initiatives and minor-hockey initiatives. The Hurricanes signed Pistilli (6’2”, 220 lbs.) to a three-year, entry-level contract on May 20 after he led his team and finished fourth in the QMJHL with 45 regular-season goals.
