The Philadelphia Flyers have signed 6-6, 211-lb defenseman Samuel Morin to a three-year, entry-level contract, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

Morin, 18 (7/12/1995), was drafted by the Flyers in the first round (11th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Since joining the team, Morin participated in the team’s summer prospect camp and the rookie camp earlier this month before main training camp opened.

Morin, 18, has really impressed the Flyers with his work ethic throughout the summer months, his willingness to learn and improve and his desire to reach his potential sooner rather than later.

He lived for part of the summer with Player Development Director Ian Laperriere, and Morin really won him over with his thirst for knowledge about the game.

“He’s getting better and better every day,” Laperriere said. “He wants to learn. He asks the right questions every day and we’re really happy with him. He knows who he is and what he can do and the sky’s the limit for a kid like that.”

In his first preseason game in the NHL, Morin played 23:14, played in all situations, and had a beauty of an assist on a goal by Vinny Lecavalier.

Morin’s contract is for three years and has performance bonuses that, if triggered, can bring his average annual value to $1.425 million.

Morin, the 11th overall pick in the 2013 draft, puts the Flyers at 51 contracts entering the 2013-14 season.

However, Morin’s contract is eligible to slide, or not count against the Flyers 50 contract limit, if he is returned to his junior team in Rimouski in the QMJHL.

My prophecy. It is being fulfilled.

The kid played the third most minutes in the game last night and didn't look out of place at all. Hopefully the Flyers do the right thing though and send him back to his junior club. Give him that taste like they did with Laughton last season. The last thing Morin needs is to be given the Luca Sbisa treatment.

Tuesday, the Flyers inked the 18-year-old defenseman to an entry-level contract. Much like last year’s first-round pick, Scott Laughton, Morin can play up to 10 games with the Flyers and still “slide” his contract. In other words, the 11th game is what initiates the start of the contract.

Don’t bet on that happening this season, though.

With nine defensemen on one-way contracts, it is near impossible for Morin to make the Flyers’ roster.

That’s not an indictment on the player, though. The Flyers have been impressed with Morin’s improvement even since June. He put on about 10 pounds since the draft and has been absorbing the Flyers’ system like a sponge.

“He was really composed out there with the puck,” said coach Craig Berube, who handled the split-squad in Philly. “That’s the thing that jumped out at me. Playing in his first exhibition in the NHL, I thought he was tremendous. He did some really good things with the puck.

“Hanging onto it, not panicking. He looked really good on the power play. Made a nice play to Vinny [Lecavalier] for a goal on the power play.”

Talk about impressive feats, stripping a Cap of the puck in the offensive zone, then whirling around and feeding Lecavalier at the right circle with a long, cross-ice pass.

Lecavalier one-timed it for a goal.

“A great pass by Sam,” Lecavalier said, adding that you can tell immediately this kid has NHL ability. “He's strong. You see 18-year-olds come in and see that they are not really ready. Their strength is not there.

“He’s tall (6-6) and you know he’s going to get bigger. You can tell on the ice. He has a strong stick. When he hits guys, he’s solid out there. He’s making great plays.

“It’s pretty rare when you look at NHL defensemen right now, his size and his toughness and what he can bring to the table. He’s going to have a very long career.”

Great news. Congrats to Morin! But I really hope that the management won't rush him and screw up his development.

Jray42 09-17-2013 02:02 PM

If he makes the team, that means I will actually be older than a Flyer/NHLer.

Holy ****. This feels really odd.

Roo Mad Bro 09-17-2013 02:02 PM

Inb4 they rush him.

He does look good though.

If Gus doesn't step his game up I could see him being benched to start the season while they give morin a try out.

It's a bit insulting being wrong about where he comes from. He comes from a small place of 5,000 people and he's the pride of the town.

I don't see how he makes the team to start the season.

If he's the 6th defenseman then that means Meszaros and Gervais would have to be sent to the AHL, and they'd have to carry Gustafsson as a healthy scratch or play 7 defensemen because if he's waived someone will claim him.

Or am I missing something?

King Forsberg 09-17-2013 02:09 PM

Great news. In his interview last night Morin was saying something about really wanting to earn a contract. Looks like he did. Jaws fantastic last night.

Hiesenberg 09-17-2013 02:12 PM

Basically means the Flyers think they got something, they could've waited on an ELC, they just pulled the trigger early. He's going back to juniors.

Hockeydb has him as being from Saint Henri, but eliteprospects and nhl.com have him from lac Beauport. They are 50 km apart, so it is not as if they are right beside each other. I assume you are from there or near and know though.

Good price. Have high hopes for him, especially after last night.

Just wait until you are older than a player signing their 3rd contract. I couldn't believe last year when I noticed Scott Hartnell was a month younger than me. Not saying he is old, but it is weird.

Curufinwe 09-17-2013 03:01 PM

Wait till you're as old as a guy like Streit signing a contract that people immediately say is too long for a player his age.

For this exact reason I wanted Laughton to be sent back to Oshawa last season. :laugh:

Wait til you're as old as the coach.

StoneHands 09-17-2013 03:13 PM

A few question regarding the sliding contract:
If he plays 10 games and is sent back to Juniors this season, could they do the same thing next season?
Is it 10 per season, 10 total, or 10 only the first season?
Could they send him back this season without playing a game (this is the most likely scenario IMO) and then have him play 10 games next year before sending him back again?

I personally don't want to see him full time for at least the next 2 seasons, regardless of how well he plays.

If Morin clearly outplays Gustafsson, Meszaros, Gervais and Grossmann, it would be awfully difficult to justify sending him back. Do I think he's going back? Yep. Do I think he'll get a 9 game trial? Most definitely.
