Morrow is a highly-skilled defender who can be a difference-maker on offence with his high-end skating and puck skills. His footwork is exceptional. He might be one of the best skaters in the class, at least amongst defensemen. It all stems from his posture, strong ankle flex, good knee bend, lets his shoulders roll, but keeps his chest and head up. He can explode in all four directions. He also utilizes crossovers very often, constantly changing direction up the ice as he leads breakouts and entries. If he doesn’t use his feet, he can look up the ice and spot his teammates through traffic, often shooting long bombs from his zone to the opponent’s blue line to spring his man. His puckhandling is also high-end, as he has the ability to skate into and out of traffic, often coming out with the puck. This combination makes a very promising offensive player. Morrow also brings a calmness to his game, drawing attackers in before making a play. He can combine all of these aspects at times, although this also transitions into the less-than-positive traits. However, when he gets too focused on getting through or past traffic, he puts blinders on and gets too focused on himself. He doesn’t notice the wide-open teammates he has and then ends up not using his teammates and runs out of space, leading to a turnover. Where Morrow really shows cause for concern is in his defensive game. There’s a lack of both urgency and awareness in his own end, resulting in missed assignments, missed pucks, and numerous turnovers. Much of this can be associated to a lack of scanning the zone. He tends to get too focused on the puck or what is in front of him and loses where his opponents are. He can also make some poor decisions, such as trying to force a pass through traffic in front of his own net. When defending the rush, he also tends to skate right at his attackers. While this may work for him now, it’s not something that will translate. He needs to learn to angle out, taking away the attackers space and forcing them to the boards rather than skating right at them. He also maintains his gap and speed when skating backwards through crossovers rather than cuts, which will see him exploited at the next level.
