March 2012 – Morin was a highly touted American prospect coming out of the USNTDP and also the OHL’s Kitchener Rangers. He is a good stick handler with a decent shot, but his skating ability has caught up with him in his first two pro seasons. He definitely isn’t afraid to play the physical game and work the corners penalty minutes are outpacing the goal output in the AHL.
Fantasy Outlook: B-
Morin possesses the goal-scoring touch but has yet to demonstrate consistently at the pro level. May play too rough a style to stay healthy long enough to develop top-line ability.

2009 Fantasy Prospects Report:
Scouting Report: Always known and coveted for his size and natural gifts around the net, Jeremy Morin likely saved his status as a top-45 pick with a strong World U18s. Despite leading the NTDP in goals, it was an up and down year for Morin as the program experienced a number of difficulties. Issues such as motivation, skating ability and the ability to keep it cool came to the fore during a cold streak in the second half. However, Morin put that all behind him with a star-making performance for Team USA. Morin finished tied for third in tournament goals (six), the same total top-10 pick Magnus Paajarvi potted. There's no denying the big man's terrific skill and willingness to agitate opponents; his skating has also improved, a huge plus.
Notable Numbers: Despite scoring 13 goals on the man-advantage, Morin still led the NTDP in even-strength goals (20).
Potential: Corey Perry, 30-40-70, 100 PIM
Years Away: 3-4
