March 2013 - Morrow has been traded to the Dallas Stars for Brendan Morrow. The Penguins are very deep on defensive prospects, and Morrow would have had a tough time gaining time with the big club. This trade enables him to do just that, showcasing his skills until a pro opportunity arrives. This will end up as a good trade for Dallas. - Seth Brisendine
March 2013 – He is trying to adjust his game with the transition to pro this season since he is now dealing with bigger, stronger forwards and he is no longer the big man in any given game. With only 15 points in 55 games thus far, he is below expectations but this does not hurt his potential. The wait may be a bit longer than an owner may like, but keep holding him or looking to acquire him. Jason Banks
June 2012 – Morrow capped off his 4 year WHL career with the Winterhawks by putting up 64 points in 62 games. He then added another 17 points in 22 playoff contests as Portland again fell just short of reaching the Memorial Cup. Morrow has signed an entry level contract with the Penguins and could push for a roster spot in Pittsburgh next season. If he doesn’t make the NHL out of camp he will play for the AHL affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton next season. Todd Poole
February 2012 – Joe Morrow is having another strong WHL season which has seen him produce at a point per game pace for the Portland Winterhawks. In 49 games this year he has put up 49 points including 14 goals. Morrow surprised the hockey world when he almost stuck at Penguins camp earlier this season. His mature, offensive, game is exactly what the Penguins preach. To help his cause even more, Morrow has shored up his defensive game and will get another long look at being a full-time NHL player when camp breaks next September.
Fantasy Outlook: A-
Poised and smart offensively. Slow start as a rookie-pro shows he'll need two or three years, even in the Dallas organization.
