Morin skates pretty well for a big man, but he does have some areas he needs to work on.* His straight line speed is good for his size, and his acceleration is decent enough.* His agility is also at a very good level, and this gives him some decent mobility.* However he does need work on his edgework and pivots.* Morin has trouble dealing with speedy forwards at this point especially when they make quick cuts around him.* He will need to work on this aspect of his game, and improve his ability to change directions quickly before he is ready for the speed of the pro game.
By the time Morin makes the big club our defense could be drastically different.
