Morrissey seemed to fulfill the lofty expectations placed upon him after the Jets selected him 13th overall in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, finishing as one of the top scoring defensemen in the WHL in 2013-14. After registering a whopping 29 goals and 47 assists in 59 games for Prince Albert, Morrissey earned a promotion to AHL St. Johnís during the postseason, where he fared well against advanced competition. His successes last season will put him in the mix for a nine-game taste of the NHL coming out of training camp, but he'll then head back to the junior level for some additional seasoning. Once he arrives in Winnipeg, Morrissey could have an immediate impact as a scorer, much like Jacob Trouba provided for the Jets as a rookie last season. Roster him in dynasty leagues -- he could be riding the planes as early as next season.


Terrific offensive upside, if only he was bigger. Still amongst fellow defensemen in the 2013 draft, only Seth Jones has as much offensive potential. A must have in all keeper leagues.
