Murphy, along with Paul Adey and Chris Ellis (above) present the live coverage on FreeSports throughout the season and have travelled the length and breadth of the country to bring the best of the action.

He’s a well respected figure in the sport in this country and his catchphrases are as popular as his opinions on the game.

A spokesman for British Ice Hockey added: “Getting Murph on board is something we’ve been keen to do for some time and we’re pleased he’s finally joined us.

“He has a good knowledge of the game, is always forthright with his views and when we put our heads together, the idea of a Q & A was something that appealed to us.

“We can’t wait to get started on this new column and see what sort of questions the fans have for him and we’re looking forward to working with him going forward.”
