History

2009-10: Jeremy Morin made his OHL debut with the Kitchener Rangers, appearing in 58 regular season games with 47 goals, 36 assists for 83 points. The forward also earned 76 PIMs during the regular season. He scored 12 goals and 9 assists for 21 points in 20 postseason games for the Rangers. Morin was a top offensive option for his U20 team at the World Junior Championships, scoring 2 goals and 5 assists in 7 games en route to a gold medal for the United States.

2010-11: Morin made his pro debut, skating in 9 NHL games with the Blackhawks and scoring 2 goals, 1 assist. The majority of his season was spent with Rockford in the AHL, where he scored 8 goals, 4 assists for 12 points in 22 games. Expected to be a goal-scoring weapon as a returning player for the U.S. at the WJC, he was knocked out by injury for two games early on and finished the tournament with just 1 assist in 4 games. Three games into his return to Rockford, Morin landed awkwardly on his head and neck area and did not return to the ice for the remainder of the year.

2011-12: Morin returned to action in October after missing nearly nine months due to post-concussion symptoms. He skated in three games with Chicago in December – spending the rest of the season with the Blackhawks’ AHL affiliate Rockford. He was minus-one with no points or penalty minutes averaging just under nine minutes of ice time in his brief stint with the Blackhawks. Morin scored 18 goals with 22 assists in 69 games for Rockford and his plus-nine plus/minus was tied with Brandon Pirri for the team lead. Morin was third on the IceHogs with 121 penalty minutes. The IceHogs did not make the AHL playoffs.

2012-13: Morin played in three regular season games for the Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks and was the third-leading scorer for Chicago’s AHL affiliate Rockford. He scored a goal in his first game with the Hawks on March 31st and had an assist in a 3-1 loss to St. Louis in the season finale. Moran was with Chicago during the playoffs but did not see any action. He led the IceHogs with 30 goals and had 28 assists in 67 games and was +2 with 86 penalty minutes. Rockford finished third in the Midwest Division, two points behind Milwaukee for the final Western Conference playoff spot.

2013-14: Morin shuttled between the Blackhawks and Chicago AHL affiliate Rockford in his fourth pro season. In 24 NHL regular season games he scored 5 goals with 6 assists and was plus-5 with 32 penalty minutes; averaging nine minutes of ice time. Morin appeared in two playoff games for Chicago and was minus-1 with no points and 2 penalty minutes. He was the second-leading scorer for the IceHogs despite skating in only 47 of 76 games, scoring a team-leading 24 goals with 23 assists, and was plus-9 with 58 penalty minutes. Rockford missed the AHL playoffs, finishing fourth in the Midwest Division. Morin signed a two-year contract extension with the Blackhawks in June 2014.

 

Talent Analysis

A goal-scorer at heart, Morin likes to carry the puck and attempt creative maneuvers. Skating is not his strong suit but is much improved from his draft year. He is committed to the physical game, regularly finishing his checks and willing to stand up for his teammates. Although he has had a slow recovery from concussion, at his best Morin is aggressive in crashing the crease and getting pucks on net.

 

Future

Morin made the Blackhawks out of training camp and is skating in a fourth line role. Struggling to find an offensive role thus far he has provided a physical presence and is counted on to provide energy.
