Josh Morrissey has been chipping offensively for St. John's during the AHL playoffs.

He has contributed two goals and six points in 12 games for the IceCaps. Morrissey had one assist in eight appearances for St. John's during the regular season after his 2013-14 campaign with Prince Albert of the WHL ended. The IceCaps are currently playing in the Eastern Conference Final. Morrissey, who was the 13th overall pick in the 2013 draft, may be given a chance to stick with the Jets next season.

Josh Morrissey will finish the season in the AHL with St. John's.

His Prince Albert Raiders were knocked out of the WHL playoffs in the first round in four straight games against the Edmonton Oil Kings. Morrissey, who was chosen with the 13th overall pick in the 2013 draft, registered 28 goals and 73 points in 59 games this season.

Josh Morrissey has been cut from the Winnipeg Jets' training camp roster.

Morrissey will report to the WHL Prince Albert Raiders. He was taken with the 13th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, so it goes without saying that he's a highly regarded prospect. That being said, he went into training camp with the knowledge that it would be tough for him to crack the Jets' opening game roster. He had 47 points and 91 penalty minutes in 70 WHL games last season.

Josh Morrissey understands that he's likely to be returned to his junior team in the WHL, but he has enjoyed a strong camp.

"I came in just like I'm here to show my best and make the team. Obviously, it's pretty difficult to do as an 18-year-old player," he said. "But when I'm here on the ice or in the weight room that has to be my attitude and my mentality." He wanted to be matched against Alex Ovechkin in Saturday's exhibition game to test and push himself. It's that kind of drive that will get him in the NHL shortly and he has plenty of potential to be successful when he does.

Winnipeg GM Kevin Cheveldayoff is high on first-round pick Josh Morrissey.

"He's a player that possesses a lot of things that we really like in a defenseman in the way the game is played right now," Cheveldayoff said. "A great skater, good hockey sense, can move the puck and has a little bit of an edge. He has the elements we think it takes to play at the National Hockey League and be an impact player on defense." Cheveldayoff also praised Morrissey for being "a real character kid, real genuine, hard-working."

Josh Morrissey has been selected with the 13th overall pick by the Winnipeg Jets.

Josh Morrissey sure makes a big impact with his small body. Logging big minutes in all situations for Prince Albert this past season, Morrissey proved to be a gifted offensive puck mover with fantastic skating and mobility. He is also creative and possesses an excellent hockey IQ that is showcased on the power play, but he could stand to reign in some of his offensive aggressiveness. Although Morrissey doesn’t shy away from physical contact, he’s not physically dominant. Morrissey needs to beef up in order to reach his potential, which could be a top-four blueliner in the NHL and power-play specialist. He's something of a long-term project and shouldn't be a factor in fantasy leagues for at least a couple years.
