Samuel Morin Re-Signs With the Philadelphia Flyers
Morin has spent his entire pro career with the Philadelphia Flyers organization playing three NHL games. He yet to record a point at the NHL level. Morin was originally drafted in the 1st round, 11th overall of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft by the Philadelphia Flyers.
Last season he scored a goal and six assists for seven points in 15 games with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms in the AHL. Over three AHL seasons, Morin has eight goals and 34 assists for 42 points in 165 AHL games.
What This Means for the Future
Although Morin has yet to play on NHL ice at a consistent basis, he could still be developing. The 6-foot-6-inch defender has been impressive playing for the Phantoms. He might not be lighting up the scoresheet but is solid in his own end. Flyers general manager Ron Hextall clearly sees value in Samuel Morin.
Morin is still relatively young. At the age of 22, he’ll have to show he can be more of a producer before he reaches his mid 20’s. Ron Hextall doesn’t think this is an area for concern. Morin will look to crack Philadelphia’s line-up in the upcoming year, making a statement that he’s ready to transition into the NHL. Whether he’s able to make it or not, Hextall rewarded him. Now it’s time for Morin to make the best of it.
