Morin is a prominent defenseman who eats a lot of minutes and plays with tremendous poise. He’s a very focused, heads-up player with a solid vision all around the ice. He’s incredibly calm with the puck and shows some elusiveness to separate himself from opponents. He also attacks the neutral zone with confidence and sets plays in transition. He makes decisive outlets, from zone exit passes to feeding the weak side one-timer on the power play. He creates many opportunities for his teammates thanks to his brain and vision, especially when he rides the blue line and leads the play from there. He shows great gap control and anticipation to neutralize plays or to keep the puck in the offensive zone. He has a strong stick and puts relentless pressure on the puck-carrier. A smart shooter, Morin puts a lot of pucks to the net with his wrist shot, but can also release some good slap shots. Morin knows well how to use his body and competitiveness to separate opponents from the puck. He plays with physicality along the boards by pinning down opponents. He’s an agile skater with quick stops and changes of direction, but displays some sluggish skating in general. He doesn’t get much traction as forwards get past him easily. Morin exhibits a weird stance with wide feet and his crossovers don’t look very smooth either. With consistent work on his skating, Morin could reach a second pair defenseman career at the pro levels with power play time. Morin proves himself as a potent blueliner that could hear his name called by the third round of the draft next summer.
