Joe Morrow dealt to Winnipeg as trade deadline passes

Just as the 3:00pm ET trade deadline for the 2017-18 National Hockey League (NHL) season passed, it was announced that the Montreal Canadiens acquired a fourth round pick in exchange for Joe Morrow.

Joe Morrow (Edmonton, AB) is a 6’0″, 198 lbs; 25-year old left shot defenceman. Morrow was selected 23rd overall in the first round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins.

After a long Western Hockey League (WHL) career with the Portland Winterhawks, the Penguins dealt their former first round pick Morrow to the Dallas Stars for Brendan Morrow and a third round pick. He only played nine games in Texas before being shipped north to Boston where he would play 65 games for the Bruins and 92 games for their AHL affiliate in Providence over four seasons.

On Free Agent Frenzy last summer, Morrow signed a cheap one-year contract with the Montreal Canadiens. He suited up for the Habs in 38 games, recording five goals and six assists.
