Samuel Morin will have knee surgery and won't play again this year.

Morin sustained the injury last week during the AHL playoffs while playing for Lehigh Valley. He only played in 15 contests for the Phantoms during the regular season because of what was believed to be a recurring groin issue.

Samuel Morin suffered an apparent knee injury last Wednesday in the AHL's Calder Cup Playoffs.

It's unclear when Morin will be available to play, but his outlook does not appear to be very good. There is some concern that Morin may not be 100 percent for training camp. Lehigh Valley will play against Toronto in the Eastern Conference Final, starting Saturday.

Samuel Morin is expected to claim a roster spot with Philadelphia next season.

Morin has drawn some comparisons to Chris Pronger, but he likely won't make the same impact in all areas like Pronger could. "Sam's got a hard shot and he'll score his share of goals, make his plays, and get his points," said Lehigh Valley coach Scott Gordon. "But not to the level of Pronger. He's not a power-play guy. From a defensive standpoint, he does have that same mean edge and attitude that Chris Pronger had." The hulking defender was limited to 15 AHL games in 2017-18 due to what was believed a recurring groin issue. Morin also appeared in two matches with Philadelphia. If he's healthy then he should be able to stick with the Flyers.

This has been a tough developmental season for Samuel Morin due to injuries.

Morin has only been able to play in 15 AHL games and two contests with the Philadelphia Flyers so far in 2017-18. Injuries are the primary reason for his limited play and it was a problem again on Saturday as Morin was forced to leave Saturday's contest with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms due to an issue. It's not clear yet if his current injury will cost him much time though. The 22-year-old defenseman was the 11th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He has seven points and 26 penalty minutes in his 15 AHL contests this season.

Samuel Morin has been loaned to Lehigh Valley of the AHL.

The Flyers took Andrew MacDonald off injured reserve in a corresponding move. Morin has appeared in two games with Philadelphia this season and 11 contests with the Phantoms.

Samuel Morin has been called up by the Philadelphia Flyers.

It's believed that Morin would have been recalled towards the end of October, but he suffered an undisclosed injury that threw a wrench in those plans. He has a goal, five points, and 22 penalty minutes in 10 AHL contests in 2017-18.

It appears Samuel Morin might return from his injury midweek.

Morin has been sidelined since the end of October due to a undisclosed injury. He traveled with the Phantoms to Hershey today but will not suit up. Before his injury, the former first round pick had four points in eight AHL games. No word on if the Flyers are planning on bringing him up to the NHL anytime soon.

Samuel Morin (undisclosed) is projected to miss two weeks.

Flyers GM Ron Hextall also clarified that Morin was never officially recalled because of the minor injury he is dealing with.

Flyers GM Ron Hextall said that Samuel Morin probably won't be at Wells Fargo Center for Monday's game because of a nagging injury.

Morin was called up to replace the injured defender Shayne Gostisbehere in the against Arizona. Hextall added that he expects to recall Mark Alt for the game. Morin suffered a minor injury in Saturday's 5-4 loss to Hartford in AHL action with Lehigh Valley.

The Philadelphia Flyers have recalled Samuel Morin from the minors.

The Flyers are down on blueliners as they were carrying only six when Shayne Gostisbehere suffered an upper body injury on Saturday, leaving them with five. There is no word yet on the seriousness of Gostisbehere's injury but Morin is a worst-case seventh defenseman or he draws into the lineup if Gostisbehere is unable to go in Arizona. Morin is a stay-at-home blueliner so his fantasy value is negligible.

The Philadelphia Flyers could recall defenseman Samuel Morin from the minors.

The Flyers may have lost Shayne Gostisbehere on Saturday and if so, they will be down two blueliners as Andrew MacDonald is also out. Morin is a stay-at-home defenseman so do not expect a lot out of him fantasy-wise if he is recalled.

Samuel Morin has been sent to the minors by Philadelphia.

Morin made the Flyers' lineup out of training camp, but didn't appear in any of their first four games. Morin has a ton of potential and will be back eventually. For now though it makes sense to send him to the minors where he'll get plenty of ice time.
Wed, Oct 11, 2017 03:21:00 PM

Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News opines that Samuel Morin should be going to the minors this week.

Morin did not play on the Flyers three game Western swing through California and the young blueliner needs to play, not sit in the press box. Morin has plenty of talent but the Flyers defense is deep and already has two rookies in Travis Sanheim and Robert Hagg. Morin will likely need an injury to a blueliner to stay. He is a stay-at-home defenseman and as a result, has little in the way of fantasy value.

Samuel Morin has yet to make an appearance in the Flyers opening three games.

It is looking more and more like the big defenseman will be returned to the minors as he should be playing at the tender age of 22 and not wallowing in the press box. He is not a scorer and therefore is not worthy of fantasy consideration at this time.
