Drafted 1st round, 23rd overall, 2011

There is no better description of Joe Morrow than the one Penguins coach Dan Bylsma provided one February afternoon, when Morrow was called up to the NHL as a seventh defenseman.

"He can skate. He's big. He's a strong guy," said Bylsma. "He's highlighted for his shot, his offensive ability, skating ability, which is very high end. But he is also a big body and he's a farmer strong kind of player down low."

Morrow is also a very hard worker and demonstrates a lot of leadership qualities on and off the ice. He ultimately projects as a top four defenseman in a similar mold as Canucks defenseman Dan Hamuis. He has good size and the physical pedigree to play a lot of minutes in all situations. He is not far from NHL ready, but needs to simplify his game in the defensive zone and play with more confidence.
