Morrow signed a one-year, one-way contract extension valued at $800,000 on Thursday, WEEI.com reports. Morrow, who will become a restricted free agent next summer, appeared in 33 games at the NHL level in 2015-16, notching one goal with six helpers for the B's. As noted in the report, he's one of seven Bruins defensemen operating under a one-way contract. You can pass over Morrow in the majority of fantasy leagues until he becomes a regular in the lineup.
Morrow collected two assists for the second straight game in Monday's 6-4 loss to Columbus. Both his assists came on Matt Beleskey's goals in this one. Prior to last game against Dallas, Morrow had just three points in 22 games. Now, he's up to seven points in 24 games after two rare offensive outbursts and has, at the very least, shown a brief glimpse as to why the Penguins used a first-round pick on him ack in 2011.
Morrow helped two power-play goals in Saturday's 7-3 victory over Dallas. It was unexpected production from the 23-year-old defenseman -- recording points for only the fourth time this year. However, it seems like everyone on Boston was clicking Saturday, giving the second-year pro a shot at making noise in the box score. Even with this multi-point effort, Morrow can be safely left on fantasy waivers.
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.
