Penguins Select Joe Morrow With First Pick In 2011 Draft

 
The Penguins selected Joe Morrow, defenseman from Portland of the WHL.
 
This is what Jesse from Faceoff Factor had to say about Morrow:
 
Morrow battled injuries all year long, but when the going got tough in the playoffs, he had one of the
better performances in North America and was the 2nd leading scorer among defensemen in the WHL 
playoffs. Morrow is a mobile defenseman with good size and speed. He’s not hesitant to start the rush 
himself and skate the puck out of danger. He’s got excellent vision and a great heads-up style of skating. 
He surveys the ice as he carries the puck and makes crisp passes to his forwards.high-caliber, but he hits the net with regularity and is a threat on the power-play. 
 
Some highlights:

 
 
 
 
You can never have enough good D. Solid pick.
 
Go Pens.
