Larry Murphy was drafted fourth overall by the Los Angeles Kings in the 1980 NHL draft. In his first season with the Kings, Murphy set NHL records for most assists and points by a rookie defenseman, 60 and 76 respectively.
A few years later, Murphy was traded to the Washington Capitals. Murphy also played for the Minnesota North Stars, Pittsburgh Penguins, Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings, in addition to the Kings and Capitals, over the course of his 21-year career.
During his time with Pittsburgh, Murphy employed a play dubbed the "Murphy Dump" by a Penguins commentator. Murphy would dump the puck into the other team's zone, in front of the net, avoiding an icing call.
Murphy was part of four Stanley Cup winning teams in the 1990s, back-to-back championships with the Penguins and back-to-back championships with the Red Wings.
He has 1,216 career points, fifth all-time amongst defensemen. He also broke Tim Horton's record for most career games by a defenseman, with 1,615, but it was surpassed a few years later by Scott Stevens.
