Morrissey agreed to terms on an eight-year, $50 million contract extension with Winnipeg on Thursday.
Despite being limited to just 59 games due to injury last season, Morrissey still managed to set career highs in assists (25), points (31) and minutes per game (22:24). The Calgary native will be expected to take on an even more active role both at even strength and on the man advantage this season following the departure of Jacob Trouba in free agency. If Morrissey can stay healthy, he could challenge for the 50-point mark, especially if he unseats Dustin Byfuglien on the No. 1 power-play unit, and he might see his minutes creep up near the 25-minute per game threshold.
Morrissey missed 20 games due to a shoulder injury, but is expected to be 100 percent for training camp, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports reports.
Morrissey shook off any lingering issues with his shoulder in order to suit up in the postseason. In six matchups with the Blues, the defenseman logged 19:08 of ice time per game and tallied one assist, eight shots and 12 blocks. Even with the injury, the Calgary native set career highs in assists (25), points (31) and average ice time (22:24) and should push for the 40-point mark in 2019-20.
Morrissey posted an assist and two shots in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Blues in Game 3.
Morrissey missed the last 20 games of the regular season with an upper-body injury, and he hadn't recorded a point since Feb. 10. While he's listed alongside Jacob Trouba on the first pairing, Morrissey's minutes have been limited to an average of 17:45 per game in the series.
Morrissey logged 17:15 of ice time Wednesday, failing to record a point in a 2-1 loss to St. Louis in Game 1 of the best-of-seven series.
Wednesday was Morrissey's first action since Feb. 24, with the Jets' blueliner having spent the last month plus a few days out of the lineup with an upper-body injury. The 24-year-old found the scoresheet 31 times in 59 games during the regular season, but after a fruitless performance in Game 1, Morrissey will hope to open his playoff account Friday when the two teams meet for Game 2.
Morrissey (upper body) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's Game 1 against the Blues, NHL.com's Tim Campbell reports.
Morrissey missed the final 20 games of the regular season due to an upper-body injury, but he was a full participant at Monday's practice, which was the first sign that he may be an option Wednesday. The Jets will be happy to have the 24-year-old back on the ice against St. Louis, as he was a steady source of offense from the blue line this season, notching six goals and 31 points in 59 games while averaging over 22 minutes of ice time per contest. Morrissey will skate with Jacob Trouba on the Jets' top pairing during Game 1, and he should also see time on the man advantage.
Morrissey (upper body) was designated as a "full-go" Monday, Paul Friesen of Winnipeg Sun reports.
Morrissey's absence extended through March and into the end of the season in April, but he seems to be progressing from injury. This news doesn't solidify his status for Wednesday's Game 1 against the Blues, but it's a positive sign for the defenseman. The burgeoning blueliner added six goals and 25 helpers -- to complement 10 power-play points -- through 59 games in his third season as a full-time player. As always, expect a definitive word from the team closer to puck drop.
Morrissey (upper body) won't be in action for the regular-season finale against the Coyotes on Saturday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
It's not all doom and gloom for Morrissey, as he reportedly took to the ice in a regular contact jersey Saturday. The burgeoning defenseman added six goals and 25 helpers -- to complement 10 power-play points -- through 59 games in his third season as a full-time player.
Head coach Paul Maurice said Monday that he doesn't expect Morrissey (upper body) to suit up in game action before the regular season ends, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
As evidenced by this news, Morrissey won't suit up in Monday's game against Chicago, and will most likely be held out until the postseason. In 59 games this season, the 24-year-old has racked up 31 points, which is a career-high. With a playoff spot locked up, expect a mix of Dmitry Kulikov and Sami Niku in the lineup for the time being.
Morrissey (upper body) took to the practice rink in a non-contact jersey Saturday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
This is a notable step in Morrissey's recovery, but the Jets have yet to put a concrete timetable on the burgeoning defenseman's return to game action. Winnipeg has already secured a playoff spot, and while crazier things have happened, we wouldn't necessarily count on Morrissey returning for the final four games that remain on the Jets' regular-season schedule in April.
Morrissey (upper body) will not be in the lineup until early April, a stretch of at least 16 games on the shelf, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
The Jets' acquisitions of Nathan Beaulieu and Bogdan Kiselevich at the deadline certainly make a lot of sense given the fact that Morrissey will miss at least a month. Prior to getting hurt, the Calgary native was stuck in a six-game pointless streak and, if his injury lingers, could fail to break that drought until the postseason.
The Jets are focusing on travel arrangements back for Morrissey (upper body) back to Winnipeg, so there may not be another update on him until Tuesday morning, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
Morrissey was hit along the boards in the third period of Sunday's road game against the Coyotes and he could be seen favoring his left arm. The Jets play host to the Wild on Tuesday evening, so expect an update on Morrissey to surface before that contest. The Calgary native has been terrific this season, as he's posted six goals and a career-high 25 assists through 59 games -- not to mention another 107 blocked shots over that span.
Morrissey left Sunday's loss to the Coyotes with an upper body injury after getting hit along the boards in the third period, Ken Wiebe of The Winnipeg Sun reports.
Morrissey left the game immediately, holding his left arm. Coach Paul Maurice said after the game that he'd have no update until the team returned home Monday. With Dustin Byfuglien out again, losing Morrissey could really test the Jets' depth on the blue line. We'll see if that inspires them to make a trade before Monday's deadline.
Morrissey (lower body) will return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Senators, Brian Munz of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.
The Jets and fantasy owners will both be happy to have Morrissey back in their lineups, as he was heating up prior to his one-game absence, picking up one goal and three points in his last four games. The 23-year-old blueliner will return to a prominent role, skating on Winnipeg's top pairing and first power-play unit against Ottawa.
Morrissey (lower body) is expected to return to the lineup against Ottawa on Saturday, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports.
The news effectively rules Morrissey out versus Montreal on Thursday, but at least gives fantasy owners a firm timeline for his return. Fortunately for the club, Dustin Byfuglien (ankle) will be in the lineup against the Habs, so any potential drop-off on the blue line should be mitigated. Once given the green light to resume playing, Morrissey will look to continue contributing offensively, as he has three points in his last four outings.
Morrissey (lower body) isn't dealing with a major injury, though he is still questionable for Thursday's road game against the Canadiens, Paul Friesen of Winnipeg Sun reports.
It doesn't seem like Morrissey is talked about all that much, but he's making serious noise this season based on six goals and a career-high 23 assists through 51 games. Additionally, Morrissey has assumed a role on the top power-play unit that has translated to seven goals and seven helpers in that key special teams spot. Rookie Sami Niku presumably would fill in for Morrissey if the breakout performer needs more time to recover.
Morrissey (lower body) won't return to Tuesday's game against the Sharks.
This injury represents a big blow, as Morrissey's in the midst of a breakout season, having already racked up a career-high 29 points through 51 games, including an assist prior to departing this one. Winnipeg's next game comes Thursday in Montreal, so expect another update on Morrissey's status prior to that contest.
Morrissey recorded his 10th power-play point of the season in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout win over Boston.
Despite playing only 47 seconds on the power play Tuesday night, Morrissey still managed to walk away with a point on the man advantage, scoring his third PP goal of the season. He also dished out a pair of hits and blocked three shots in the win.
Morrisey scored an empty-net goal and added an assist in Sunday's 5-1 win over Dallas.
Morrisey's empty-netter came with his team down a man. Prior to scoring it, the defenseman had gone nine games without a goal and has just five on the season. Despite his slow scoring pace, Morrisey remains an important piece to the team's power-play puzzle, leading Winnipeg with 2:20 of ice time Sunday. He also recorded a team-high five shots on goal.
Morrissey scored the overtime winner to go with a power-play assist in Thursday's 5-4 win over Edmonton.
Morrissey needed just 41 seconds to put an end to the extra session courtesy of his fourth goal this season. Three of Morrissey's four goals have come in the month of December, and he also has four assists this month despite playing in only five of a possible seven games due to a lower-body injury.
Morrissey finished with three points Sunday, including a pair of assists in a 7-1 win over Philadelphia.
Morrissey gave his team a 2-0 lead with a power-play goal late in the first period. It was just his third goal of the season and 16th of his career. Morrissey had missed his team's past two games with a lower-body injury, but his return undoubtedly made an impact on his team's offensive performance. He'll continue to see a ton of ice time on Winnipeg's top pairing.
