Here's a sneak preview of the comprehensive preseason Bruins prospects review that will post on the New England Hockey Journal website this week and next in three parts.


Adam Morrison, G
Upside:
With ideal size at 6-foot-3 and a great attitude, everyone would like to see this free agent pickup and former third-round pick by the Flyers in 2009 succeed in Boston. When on top of his game, he plays a polished, fundamentally sound butterfly style with good positioning on his angles, giving opponents very little to shoot at.

Downside: Morrison is an enigma: the British Columbia native has impressive physical tools, which got him drafted 61st overall, but then regressed in his development, only emerging as a WHL star after the Flyers opted not to sign him. He will go through periods where he alternates between looking like a brick wall and being unable to stop a muskmelon.

Outlook: Like former B’s prospect Mike Hutchinson (since signed with Winnipeg), Morrison’s biggest issue is a lack of consistency, and he has yet to establish himself as a capable starter even at the ECHL level. Until he can do that, there is little use of discussing a viable NHL future, at least not in Boston, given the team’s depth chart at present.
