    Draft Prospect - 2011
    Back to Prospects›

    Joseph Morrow
    North American Skater
    Portland, WHL
    Final Rank: 12 Midterm Rank: 16
    Position: Defenseman Shoots: Left
    Height: 6' 0" Weight: 197
    Born: December 9, 1992 Hometown: Sherwood Park, AB
    Birthplace: Edmonton, AB, CAN
    Drafted: PIT (1st Round / 23rd Overall)

    • During the 2011 Western Hockey League playoffs he ranked second among all defensemen with 20 points (6-14--20) in 21 games as Portland made it to the WHL final.

    • In 2010-11, Morrow led the Portland defensemen with 49 points and six power-play goals (9-40--49) in 60 games, surpassing his 2009-10 numbers by 18 points (7-24--31).

    • There is no shortage of hockey lineage in the Morrow family: his father, Dave, was drafted by Vancouver in the 1977 amateur draft and by the Cincinnati Stingers in the WHA draft -- he went on to play 10 games in the World Hockey Association with the Indianapolis Racers; his brother, Josh, was drafted 203rd overall in 2002 by Nashville (a shoulder injury ended his hockey career at the junior level); and his uncle, Darrell, played four years at the University of Denver.

    • Morrow is one of four Portland Winterhawks ranked by Central Scouting -- he is joined by forwards Sven Baertschi (No. 7 ranked) and Ty Rattie (No. 17 ranked) and defenseman Tyler Wotherspoon (No. 40 ranked). In 2010, eight players were drafted from Portland.

    PROS: Likes to play "Call of Duty," enjoys the movie "Inception," and has an appreciation for old school cartoons (Tom and Jerry.)

    CONS: Likes "Entourage," and likes to eat eggs benedict for breakfast. (YUK!)

    Please excuse my ignorance as I know absolutely NOTHING about this kid. (I was only looking into wingers.) I think it's safe to say that EVERYONE was expecting the Pens to go with a winger, so I'm wondering if adding more depth at D is an indication that we might see Martin get traded? IDK, it could mean nothing. It's just a thought.

    I think its like the pitchers for the pirates. You stock up on d-men and if you have NHL players that you can't use then you can trade them for whatever you need. I don't think this draft pick has any baring on what they do this year tbh. Shero likes to make moves though so there are always possible trades on the horizon.
