  • Jets' Josh Morrissey: Racks up double-digit hits
    By RotoWire Staff

    Morrissey was credited with 10 hits in a 2-1 win over the Kings on Wednesday. Now with 48 hits this season, Morrissey is no stranger to throwing the body, though the official scorers may have been a little generous in this one (teammate Brandon Tanev racked up seven hits, as well). Nonetheless, that's some prolific production for anyone rostering the rearguard in leagues that count defensive stats, but Morrissey's five points and average power-play time (less than 30 seconds) leave him well off most fantasy radars.

  • Morrissey logged a mere 17:21 of ice time against the Wild on Friday, well below his 19:29 season average. Morrissey has been used sparingly on the power play, instead focusing his efforts on the penalty kill, which could explain the decrease in minutes. It could also be the result of the defender's minus-5 rating and limited offensive production (two points). Fortunately for the 22-year-old, he shouldn't have to worry about being dropped from the game-day lineup -- even if he doesn't get as many shifts as he had been.

  • Jets' Josh Morrissey: Garners assist for Canada
    By RotoWire Staff

    Morrissey picked up a lone helper in 10 outings with Canada at the 2017 IIHF World Championship. Morrissey played in all 10 outings at Worlds, where he recorded a plus-5 rating to go with his single point. Those numbers are indicative of his role as a shutdown defender with Winnipeg. In his rookie campaign, the 22-year-old played in all 82 games while averaging 19:29 of ice time and snagging eight goals and 14 helpers. The Calgary native was used sparingly on the power play and penalty kill this year, but if he can expand his role on special teams next season, he will become a strong fantasy option.

  • Jets' Josh Morrissey: Playing in Worlds for Canada
    By RotoWire Staff

    Morrissey will suit up at the 2017 IIHF World Championship for Canada. Morrissey will join Canada following a solid rookie campaign with the Jets in which he averaged 19:29 of ice time and registered 20 points. Apparently, playing in all 82 games wasn't enough for the 22-year-old, as he'll extend his season into May. Winnipeg will likely give Morrissey an expanded role for the 2017-18 campaign, which could lead to a breakout for the 2013 first-round pick.

  • Morrissey posted his first career power-play goal in Friday's 3-1 loss against the Ducks. Morrissey showed no signs of the leg injury which had him listed on the injury report. He has managed four goals with five points over his past nine outings. Morrissey isn't a great fantasy option, but he is worth a look in deeper pools since he continues to trend up lately.
