Morin was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Tuesday, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Listed at 6-foot-7 and 227 pounds, Morin figures to add size and physicality to the lineup. The 21-year-old has amassed 238 PIM over two seasons with the Phantoms, and he's been known to wind up in the scoring column every now and then. Morin didn't have the best preseason with turnovers standing out, but his long-term prospects look promising as the 11th overall pick from the 2013 draft.
