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.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Beginning conditioning assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin (knee) was loaned to AHL Lehigh Valley for a conditioning assignment Thursday.

The 2013 first-round pick is yet to see game action at any level this season, but has a chance to play in as many as three games with Lehigh Valley this weekend. Morin has been medically cleared for nearly a month, so the goal of this assignment is intended to get Morin up to game speed.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Cleared, still month away
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin (knee) has been cleared to participate fully moving forward, but Flyers GM Chuck Fletcher indicated Friday that he's still a month away from being ready for NHL hockey.

Morin remains on non-roster injured reserve as he continues to work his way back into game shape for the Flyers. While his full clearance is a good sign, the team will make sure the 23-year-old defenseman is completely ready before he returns. A 2013 first-round selection, Morin has just three career games under his belt at the top level. Morin's best effort of 19 points over 76 games at AHL Lehigh Valley in 2015-16 suggests his upside from a fantasy standpoint may be limited at the top level.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Skating Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin (knee) took a twirl on the ice with his teammates Thursday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Morin seems to be on track for a February return to action, which will likely occur in the minors either full time or on a conditioning assignment. The blueliner has just three NHL games under his belt and will likely need some time to get back up to full speed. Heading into the 2019-20 campaign, the Quebec native figures to compete for a regular spot on the 23-man roster.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Back on ice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin skated with the Flyers during practice Thursday, reports Adam Kimelman of

Morin hasn't played this season and still isn't expected to return before February because of a torn ACL, but it's great to see him at least skating. The 22-year-old has played in three career NHL games and hasn't recorded a point yet. He's only worth stashing in dynasty leagues.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, TSN reports.

Morin isn't expected to play until February as he's recovering from a torn ACL he suffered in May. That means he'll land on long-term injured reserve and the Flyers will get cap relief. Morin has just three NHL games under his belt and no points to show for it, and he'll likely be sent to AHL Lehigh Valley once he's healthy.

Flyers' Samuel Morin: Procures three-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morin (knee) agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Flyers on Friday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

According to an unnamed source that Whyno cited, Morin's deal is worth $700,000 annually. It's refreshing to see Philly standing behind its towering prospect (6-foot-6, 202 pounds) despite how he required surgery to repair a torn ACL in May and is expected to be kept off the game ice until February of 2019. Morin very well could be worth the wait -- after all, the Flyers took him 11th overall in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Among the blueliners who finished the year on the team's active NHL roster last season, only four of them are currently under contract for the 2018-19 campaign.
