|Assets:||Is an aggressive defenseman who can hit with aplomb, put up good numbers on offense and also act as a shutdown, big-minute defender. He's also an asset on the power play due to a big shot and great wheels.|
|Flaws:||Must become a more consistent player in all areas of the game in order to maximize his long-range upside in the National Hockey League. Also, he doesn't own ideal size, so he must prove capable of staying healthy.|
|Career Potential:||Talented, aggressive defenseman with good upside.|

NewsDefenseman Joe Morrow could be the Stars future quarterback on the power play.
Dallas Morning News
ImpactMorrow was acquired Sunday from the Penguins in exchange for Brenden Morrow with draft picks dealt from both sides. Morrow is a two-way blueliner who is tough and physical defensively but has improved the offensive side of his game and can now quarterback the power play and has a big shot from the point. "He was a person that we had our eye on in the draft," GM Joe Nieuwendyk said. "He has great skating ability, a really hard shot, and he's still very young. He just turned 20. He's a legitimate NHL prospect who fits a need in our group." Morrow was selected 23rd overall in the 2011 Draft and could be called up from the AHL before the end of the season.
