Morrissey collected a pair of power-play assists in a 4-2 loss to Arizona on Tuesday. Up to six assists in six games, four of Morrissey's helpers have come with the man advantage. He continues to see a boatload of time on Winnipeg's power play, averaging 4:26 of power-play ice time through six games, suggesting Morrissey will be given plenty of prime opportunities to produce points in 2019-20.
Morrissey (upper body) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Wild, Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Morrissey missed the last two games of Winnipeg's season-opening four-game road trip, but he's back in there for the home opener. He's the clear-cut top option on the Jets' new-look blue line, at least as long as Dustin Byfuglien (personal) remains away from the team.
Morrissey (upper body) won't suit up for Tuesday's matchup with Pittsburgh, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports. Following Monday's practice session, Morrissey was given the green light to play versus the Penguins, but it appears he will be held out after dealing with additional symptoms. With the defenseman on the shelf, Carl Dahlstrom will likely see an uptick in ice time while the recently recalled Sami Niku slots into the lineup.
Morrissey (upper body) has been given the green light to suit up versus Pittsburgh on Tuesday, Ken Wiebe of The Athletic reports. Morrissey missed Sunday's matchup with the Islanders after sustaining an upper-body injury during warmups, but appears to be no worse for the wear. The blueliner should get back to logging over 25 minutes per game, including time with the No. 1 power-play unit. Anthony Bitetto figures to maintain his spot in the lineup due to Dmitry Kulikov's (personal) absence.
Morrissey (upper body) participated in Monday's practice without limitations, Mitchell Clinton of JetsTV reports. Morrissey was injured during pregame warmups ahead of Sunday's game versus the Islanders, and he was ultimately scratched as a precaution and replaced by Carl Dahlstrom in the lineup. His participation in Monday's practice signals he should be ready for Tuesday's road game versus the Penguins barring a setback.
