Blackhawks send Morin to Blue Jackets for Erixon – Washington Times

He had not played for the Blackhawks since Nov. 20 and had been a healthy scratch in eight consecutive games. He had zero points in 15 games for the Blackhawks this season. Morin, who was once considered one of the Blackhawks’ top offensive prospects, was expected to play a larger role this season, but never won over Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville. Morin averaged 7:44 of ice time this season. He signed a two-year contract extension with the Blackhawks in June. Erixon, 23, has one goal, five assists and is a minus-3 in 19 games for the Blue Jackets this season. He has averaged 16:58 of ice time. He has one goal, 12 assists and is a plus-1 in 70 career NHL games. He will report to the Blackhawks. Erixon will be a restricted free agent after this season. source: http://espn.go.com/chicago/nhl/story/_/id/12027016/chicago-blackhawks-trade-jeremy-morin-columbus-blue-jackets-tim-erixon

Morin has no points in 15 NHL games this season. The winger was assigned to Rockford of the AHL for a conditioning assignment Tuesday because he wasn’t playing at all with the loaded Blackhawks. “It’s a good chance for Mo to play and for Timmy to join our organization,” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said before Sunday night’s game against Calgary. The 23-year-old Erixon is “looking to get established in that continued rotation and show he can play at our level,” Quenneville continued. “We’ll get to find out a little bit more about him tonight in joining our team, and complement our team game as well.” Morin, 23, has eight goals and eight assists in 54 career regular-season games, all with Chicago. He also played in two postseason games in May. The Blue Jackets’ next game is Tuesday night in Detroit. Erixon had one goal and five assists in 19 games with Columbus this season. He scored his first NHL goal on Oct. 26 at Los Angeles. source: http://www.foxsports.com/nhl/story/chicago-blackhawks-trade-jeremy-morin-to-columbus-blue-jackets-for-tim-erixon-121414

He had zero points in 15 games this season, which led to a lot of healthy scratches and he was later sent to the AHL on a conditioning assignment. All of those factors, plus the ultimatum, made a big dent in the once-promising prospect’s trade value. The 23-year-old, who was a second-round selection of the Atlanta Thrashers in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft and acquired by Chicago in the trade for Dustin Byfuglien , has been a victim of trying to find a spot on a star-laden team. Though Morin has seen stints in five seasons, he’s never played more than 24 games in a single campaign. That came last season, during which he registered 11 points. Despite the lack of NHL work, Morin has been extremely productive at the AHL level. Last season, Morin had 47 points in 47 games. He had 30 goals for the Rockford IceHogs in 2012-13 as well. Morin was given the best opportunity to seize a full-time role this season with the Blackhawks, but wasn’t able to take advantage. He should get another chance at significant NHL time for an injury-riddled Blue Jackets club. Perhaps Morin finds his NHL legs in an organization that could end up relying on him more than Chicago ever needed to. source: http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/eye-on-hockey/24887001/blackhawks-trade-jeremy-morin-to-blue-jackets-for-tim-erixon
