Joe Morrow doesn't have a point in three games with the Boston Bruins, but he feels his offensive game will come around.
"I've kind of always been known as a more flashy, offensive player, more risky, I don't know, a kind of all-over-the-place kind of guy," Morrow said. "But I've learned pretty quick that even if I tried it up here, it wouldn't fly and it wouldn't be good. It wouldn't be good for anybody, especially myself. I feel comfortable with the way I'm playing and I think I'll just stay like that for now." Morrow has racked up eight shots and he's posted a plus-2 rating thus far. He's been averaging 17:29 of ice time per contest, but he hasn't seen any power-play time. Nov 6 - 9:52 AM

Defenceman Joe Morrow made his NHL debut against the Sabres Thursday night and aquitted himself quite well.

In 17:51 minutes of playing time Morrow took four shots on goal and was plus one. Bruins' coach Claude Julien was certainly impressed. "I thought (Morrow) moved the puck well. He doesn't seem to be rattled by anything," Julien said. "For a guy who played in his first NHL game, the last thing he looked was nervous. He was so calm, made good plays. Yea, he made a few mistakes like everybody else during the period of a game, but I thought he handled himself well." Look for Morrow to dress for Saturday's game against Ottawa. Morrow has some offensive upside as he was a scoring star with Portland of the WHL and registered 29 points in 56 games in the AHL last season. See if he gets some PP time with Zdeno Chara and Torey Krug out of the lineup.

Defenseman Joe Morrow could be the Stars future quarterback on the power play.

Morrow was acquired Sunday from the Penguins in exchange for Brenden Morrow with draft picks dealt from both sides. Morrow is a two-way blueliner who is tough and physical defensively but has improved the offensive side of his game and can now quarterback the power play and has a big shot from the point. "He was a person that we had our eye on in the draft," GM Joe Nieuwendyk said. "He has great skating ability, a really hard shot, and he's still very young. He just turned 20. He's a legitimate NHL prospect who fits a need in our group." Morrow was selected 23rd overall in the 2011 Draft and could be called up from the AHL before the end of the season.
