Makes me happy
Not that it matters at this stage of the game, but one less thing to worry about for next season.
It's a good thing, but I don't get the timing...
Maybe they expect a ton of D to go down to injury this season and need to have him ready for an emergency call-up.
Release from the Jets on Morrissey.
Kid looks to be a good one. Excited to watch him develop.
Holy smokes have the Jets been busy this year.
This week just keeps getting better
Very good news.
I have to say that I'm very pleased with the way that the Jets organization is doing almost everything. I'm a happy fan right now.
I saw on Twitter somewhere that this puts the team two contracts from the limit.
Capgeek only has us at 43, whoever said it probably wasn't factoring in the guys in junior who don't count against the limit.
I must say the D on this team will be Stacked for years to come, if Chevy drafts just 1 more elite D prospect he'll be known equivalently as a Mad Scientist, but for D-men.
Expected but still glad it's official. By all accounts, Morrissey played above his (still respectable) draft slot and displays the intangibles that Noel seems most emphatic about.
What is really nice is that Morrissey is playing for a junior team that is built to compete against the Hitmen and the Oil Kings but will mostly pl;ay the Pats and Blades. I expect to see Prince Albert make some noise in the the WHL playoffs this year. Ideally, Morrissey can be the Jets pipeline to Leon Draisatl. That kid is the epitome of high-end skill in a big body.
Interesting timing, but its nice to have him signed to his ELC.
He can be an emergency injury call-up, but have to go back to Jr afterwards, no? I thought once he's sent back to Jr, he's there for the year, except for very special situations, no? Holden?
Edit: he would be eligible to play in NHL/AHL playoffs, once PA is eliminated from their playoffs, no?
I think that's pretty much it.
So I got a DM from a local media member that states after he has checked with the nhlpa he says that jr player contracts do count.
However, he does not say if that is if they are in junior they don't count.
So there's that lol
#whatdidchevydotoday: Signed a top prospect
we need a #whatdidchevydotoday GDT
We're gonna need to change it to #whatdidn'tchevydotoday....I have been very very happy with his work
...small point, but can we correct the spelling of Morrissey's name in the tread title?
This would seem to indicate that Morrissey and Blomqvist don't count against the contract limit for this season.
I don't really understand how contracts work, but generally speaking, wouldn't it make more sense to sign him in a year or two when he actually has a chance to make the team? Doesn't signing him now waste a year (at least) of his 3 year ELC?
If my understanding is correct he needs to play 9 games with the Jets to burn a year of his ELC.
Separate names with a comma.
