FIGHTING FALCONS PROUD TO WORK WITH DR. TODD MURPHY
Former Denver Broncos and Colorado Rockies Physician Works With Local Team
PORT HURON, MI – The Port Huron Fighting Falcons, through a partnership with Orthopedic Associates are happy to receive the services of Dr. Todd Murphy throughout their inaugural season in the North American Hockey League.
Dr. Murphy will act as Dr. of the Game at many 2010-11 Fighting Falcons home games, caring for players from each participating team as needed. A 2003 graduate of Wayne State University School of Medicine, Dr. Murphy has previously worked as Team Physician for the NFL’s Denver Broncos, and MLB’s Colorado Rockies.
Dr. Murphy completed a fellowship in Sports Medicine at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic before joining Orthopedic Associates in 2009.
“We are thrilled to be able to work with such a talented doctor,” said Fighting Falcons Director of Administration Julie Cranskshaw. “This is an extremely tough sport, and it is extremely important that our kids receive the treatment and care that they need to stay healthy and successful.”
The Fighting Falcons return to action this weekend when the Motor City Metal Jackets visit McMorran Arena. Games on Friday and Saturday each start at 7:11 p.m. and the team is offering Attack Zone tickets at a discounted rate of $7 all weekend. Anyone 21 and over will gain free access to McMorran’s Oktoberfest with a ticket stub from either game.
