Observations:

 

November 2013 - Morin was named to the QMJHL roster for the upcoming 2013 Subway Super Series. It’s an annual six game tournament held between a hand picked team of Russian Junior players and three all star teams representing the OHL, WHL, and QMJHL. He currently has two goals and four assists in 10 games with Rimouski. Jenn Lardani


September 2013 -  The Philadelphia Flyers have signed first round draft pick Samuel Morin to a three-year entry level contract. The 6’6” defenseman earned a point with a perfect pass in an exhibition game on September 16, 2013. Jenn Lardani


 

July 2013 - Taken 11th overall in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Rimouski Oceanic defenseman Samuel Morin certainly fits the description of what the Philadelphia Flyers are looking for - a big reliable defenseman.  The loss of Chris Pronger on the Flyers' blue line was substantial and Philadelphia is hoping that eventually Samuel Morin can being similar intangibles to their line-up. Morin is already known for matching up against opponent’s top players and eating up big minutes in all types of situations. He’s probably not going to impress with his offensive output but he gets the puck up ice efficiently and he also has a huge slap shot from the point. Morin is going to get every opportunity with the Flyers to become a top four defenseman. He would benefit greatly from a few years in the AHL as it would be unwise for the Flyers to rush this player because they desperately need him to pan out. Nathan Martin


June 2013 – The Philadelphia Flyers selected Samuel Morin with the 11th overall selection of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Brendan Ross

 

June 2013 – Smooth skating defenseman with a ton of physicality, Morin can play tough defensive minutes and also add some toughness with a willingness to drop the minutes. At this point in time, Morin’s offensive upside is unknown but he does move the puck well and owns a good point shot. In 46 games for Rimouski, Morin posted 16 points and 116 penalty minutes. Brendan Ross

 

 

Fantasy Outlook: C -

 

Morin is a project type of defenseman but his physicality and edginess add value for leagues that reward penalty minutes.
