2. Josh Morrissey, or Perhaps Even Josh “Norrissey”
I’m not sure what else you can say about Josh Morrissey’s play this season. He’s defying all expectations and somehow continues to impress.
With his winner last night, Morrissey now has four goals on the season, with the past two being overtime game-winners. This brings his season point total up to 20 points in just 19 games, which ranks sixth among NHL defenders.
He appears to be playing with an unreal amount of confidence, and it showed on his winner against the Stars. Outskating Stars forward Jason Robertson, Morrissey turned his rush into a breakaway.
Here’s what head coach Rick Bowness had to say about Morrissey:
Indeed he was, Rick, and holy moly was it electric.
