Morrow will not play Saturday evening against the Canadiens. Morrow appears to be a healthy scratch against the league's top team. The depth blueliner has a minus-2 rating with one goal for his only point through nine games.
Morrow recorded a goal in 18:57 worth of ice time in Tuesday's 6-0 win over the Coyotes. In his second game back since missing 11 days with a bout of the flu, Morrow notched his first point of the season Tuesday on a well-placed wrist shot, while logging a plus-two rating in the contest. For now, the smooth-skating Morrow is off the fantasy radar, but he's a player to keep an eye on down the road, in the event that the Bruins decide to employ him more on their power play.
The Bruins have activated Morrow (illness) from IR. Morrow thus appears on track to pair with Colin Miller in Friday's game against the Islanders, with fellow blueliner Zach Trotman projected to be a healthy scratch.
Morrow (illness) returned to practice Tuesday. Morrow was placed on IR last Tuesday to open up a spot on the Bruins' 23-man roster for Tommy Cross during their two game road trip. However, Morrow now appears to have fully recovered from the illness that forced him to miss the team's last two games, and will likely return to Boston's lineup Wednesday against Philadelphia.
The Bruins placed defenseman Joe Morrow (illness) on the IR on Tuesday, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports. Morrow is currently dealing with the flu, so rather than bring him on their upcoming two game road trip, the Bruins have opted to place the 22-year-old on IR so that Tommy Cross can replace him on their 23-man roster. Morrow will miss at least the next two games, but will be eligible to return to action Oct. 21 against the Flyers.
