I wouldn't say a significant physical maturation would be required because Doughty is only 5'11, 210 pounds. He's stocky. Morrissey is 6'0, 185 pounds. I'd like to think in five years time, Morrissey reaches the 200+ pound mark when he physically matures.
I've read comparisons, and maybe they were yours, of Morrissey to Duncan Keith - small, fast puck moving D.

If his talent/skating/strength are that good, the height doesn't matter as much.
