North Dakota forward Wade Murphy will not return to Grand Forks for the 2015-16 season and will instead transfer to Arizona State.

The Grand Forks Herald first reported that Murphy left school and SB Nation reported the ASU transfer. He’ll sit out the 2015-16 season due to NCAA transfer rules and will have two years of eligibility remaining.


Murphy, who was a seventh-round draft pick (185th overall) of the Nashville Predators in 2013, posted four assists in 35 games over two seasons with UND.
