Flyers' Samuel Morin: Back on taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers shifted Morin to the taxi squad Sunday.

Morin will spend his second stint on the taxi squad, as he's yet to make an appearance in game action while on the active roster. Expect the 25-year-old to continue to shift between the taxi squad and active roster this season as the team tries to save some cap space.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Back on active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers added Morin to their active roster Saturday.

This has become a recurring theme for Morin, who will likely continue to shuffle between the taxi squad and the active roster throughout the season. He's expected to serve as a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against Boston.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Back on taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin was demoted to the taxi squad Friday.

Morin was promoted to the main squad after Philippe Myers (ribs) was deemed week-to-week but after going unused for Thursday's matchup with Boston, Morin has been designated for the taxi squad again. This will likely be a frequent occurrence for the converted winger as Philadelphia tries to shave some cap space.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Added to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin was promoted to the active roster from the taxi squad Thursday.

Philippe Myers is considered week-to-week with a fractured rib, so Morin will be on hand as a depth option for the foreseeable future. The 23-year-old blueliner picked up 16 points while posting a plus-17 rating in 50 games with the Flyers last season.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Headed for waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin was placed on waivers Monday.

Morin has converted to wing after being drafted 11th overall by the Flyers during the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. With injuries limiting him to just a handful of games over the last two seasons, it remains unclear how the Philadelphia organization will choose to handle his workload during the upcoming season should he go unclaimed by noon Tuesday.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Moving to forward
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin will be given an extended look at left wing during training camp.

Morin has dealt with a bevy of knee injuries over the past several seasons, which have seen the Flyers' depth on the blue line steadily increase. With little chance of breaking into the lineup as a defenseman, the 2013 11th overall pick will try to find a place at forward. With a shortened camp schedule, Morin will face a steep learning curve but will at least challenge Connor Bunnaman for a spot on the fourth line.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Set to play in AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to coach Alain Vigneault, Morin (knee) is expected to play 50-60 games in the AHL next season, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Injuries have limited Morin to a meager 28 games over the last three years in both the AHL and NHL. If the 2013 first-round pick can show he is still the same player that racked up 16 points in 74 contests for the Phantoms in 2016-17, he could earn a call-up or two next year.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Preparing for 2020-21
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin (knee) is not expected to be back until the 2020-21 campaign. General manager Chuck Fletcher told reporters, "Sam is progressing well. He has begun skating and is expected to be cleared to play in time for the 2020-21 season."

Once fully fit, Morin figures to compete for a regular spot on the 23-man roster heading into next season. Depending on how well the Flyers feel the youngster is progressing in his development, they could opt to let veteran Justin Braun walk in free agency this summer.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Dealt bad injury news
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers announced Thursday that Morin suffered a torn ACL in his right knee and is expected to be out for the reminder of the season.

The injury occurred in Wednesday's AHL game against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, and will cost Morin the season. The 24-year-old will finish the season with no points between three AHL games and one NHL game. The next steps would be a formal placement on injured reserve and surgery, as Morin is expected to face a lengthy recovery.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Sent on conditioning assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Flyers loaned Morin to AHL Lehigh Valley on a conditioning assignment Thursday.

Morin has been a healthy scratch for all but one of Philadelphia's first 11 games, so he'll head to the minors to get back into playing shape. The 24-year-old will likely remain with Lehigh Valley for the full two weeks he's allotted for a conditioning assignment.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Remains healthy scratch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin sat out for the eighth straight game to begin this season Thursday against the Blackhawks.

The 24-year-old continues to wait his turn, as he hasn't made his 2019-20 debut yet. Morin has only played eight NHL games in his career and didn't register a point. He should only be on rosters in deep dynasty formats.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Sitting in press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin is still waiting to make his 2019-20 debut, as he's been a healthy scratch for each of the first two games of the season.

It's only been two contests, but Morin made the Flyers as the team's seventh defenseman, so it's hard to project a lot of playing time for the 24-year-old. Morin has a lot of upside, but he's also returning from an ACL injury that kept him out for most of last season. He's played just seven games at any level since returning.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Finishes 2018-19 with no points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin played five games in 2018-19 and posted a minus-3 rating with no points and five shots on net.

The 23-year-old has dressed for eight NHL games in his career and hasn't logged a point. He lost most of the 2018-19 season because of a torn ACL. Morin should see more NHL action in 2019-20, but it's hard to predict exactly how much more. Assuming everyone is back (the Flyers have a couple restricted free agent defensemen), Morin will probably be competing with Andrew MacDonald, Philippe Myers and maybe Christian Folin for the sixth spot on the Flyers' blue line.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Plays second game of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin posted a minus-1 rating, two blocks and one hit in a 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes on Saturday.

He received more playing time, skating 14:46 versus the Hurricanes, but Morin didn't produce much fantasy value. Still, it's great to see the former first-round pick playing in the NHL after he tore an ACL last May. Morin should see more playing time during the final week of the season with the Flyers officially eliminated from playoff contention with Saturday's loss.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Likely a healthy spectator
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin (illness) is projected to be a healthy scratch for Thursday's game against the Blackhawks, Scott King of reports.

Morin's only appeared in three NHL games since the Flyers drafted him 11th overall in 2013. Of course, an ACL tear that he sustained in the AHL playoffs last year largely sidetracked his development, and he still hasn't made his top-level debut for the 2018-19 campaign.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin is under the weather and won't be available against Montreal on Tuesday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Considering Morin has been relegated to a spot in the press box even when healthy, his absence in unlikely to impact most fantasy owners. At some point, the blueliner should get the opportunity to make his 2018-19 debut, but he will need to wait a little longer after picking up an illness.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Sitting and waiting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin is still waiting to make his first NHL appearance this season.

The Flyers removed Morin from injured reserve almost two weeks ago, but he's been a healthy scratch since then. Philadelphia is holding out hope that the team can still claim a playoff spot, so perhaps the Flyers don't want to give Morin his first NHL action since recovering from a torn ACL during the playoff hunt. But time is running out on Morin playing this season. He has dressed in two AHL contests during 2018-19 and has no points.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Watching action from afar
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

While Morin (knee) has been removed from injured reserve, he isn't expected to rejoin the lineup immediately, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Flyers like what they have seen from fellow rookie Philippe Myers, so Morin could end up as a healthy scratch for at least Thursday's game against the Blue Jackets. As Philadelphia's first-round (11th overall) pick from the 2013 draft, Morin remains an intriguing prospect, but he's unlikely to draw interest outside of dynasty leagues at this time.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin (knee) is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

The Flyers recalled Morin from his minor-league conditioning stint Monday, and although he isn't expected to play Tuesday against the Sabres, he could make his season debut as soon as Thursday against the Blue Jackets. The 2013 first-round pick hasn't made an impact at the NHL level yet, going scoreless in three appearances over the past two seasons, but he's been noticeable during his time in the AHL, totaling 42 points and 278 PIM in 167 games with the Phantoms.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Returns to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin (knee) was recalled from AHL Lehigh Valley on Monday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Morin was on a minor-league conditioning loan. He hasn't played at all for the Flyers this season, but the 6-foot-6, 202-pound defenseman could seize an opportunity at the top level since the 23-man roster limit will be lifted in conjunction with Monday's NHL trade deadline. Morin has produced 42 points (eight goals, 34 assists) and 278 PIM over 167 games for the Phantoms.
