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. Jan 22 - 9:28 AM

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.

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.

It is possible that Samuel Morin will make his season debut with the Flyers Saturday night against the Ducks.

The 6'7" rearguard doesn't offer much offense, but he could be a nice penalty-minute contributor. Keep him in mind should you need to bolster your PIMs.

Samuel Morin knows he needs to have a solid training camp to make the Flyers roster.

The 22-year-old has suited up in just one NHL game in his career, but there's a real opportunity for him to crack the opening night roster in 2017-18. "For sure, it’s a different feeling this year," said Morin. "Last year, even if I had a really good camp, there were a lot of veterans that were coming back. This year, you can see there’s a lot more room for young guys. There are so many [young] guys that are good players, and in order to get a spot I’m going to have to deserve it. I’m going to need to battle." Morin is more of a physical, stay-at-home defenseman, so he won't have any fantasy value even if he does make the team.

Samuel Morin could open the season on a pairing with Shayne Gostisbehere.

The 22-year-old played in one game with the Flyers last season. Morin spent the last two years with the Flyers' AHL affiliate. The 6-foot-6, 200-pound defenseman doesn't provide much in the way of offense. Morin is more of a stay-at-home, physical defender. The stability he brings defensively should complement Gostisbehere's riskier style of play.

Updating a previous report, general manager of the Philadelphia Flyers Ron Hextall has confirmed that Samuel Morin recently underwent surgery on both wrists.

Hextall texted in to Philly News writer Sam Carchidi that the injury is "nothing long term". Morin stands at 6-foot-7, weighing 227 pounds and was the 11th overall pick of the Flyers in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He is expected to be a regular contributor to the blue line for the Flyers next season.
