Defenceman Samuel Morin has retired from pro hockey. Drafted in the first round, 11th overall, by the Philadelphia Flyers, Morin has one point (1G, 0A) in 29 games for the Philadelphia Flyers (2016/17-2020/21). Morin was an unfortunate bust from that year’s first round, frequently finding himself on the injury list. He had been reasonably productive in his junior career, at least enough that he could reasonably be foreseen as an NHL regular, even if the comparisons to Chris Pronger were too optimistic. He never quite made it to being a regular due to various injuries, missing 54 games during the 2019 season, 55 during the 2020 season and all 16 of the Flyers’ playoff games, and all of this past season with knee injuries, among a smattering of others. Morin’s career high in points and goals is of course his one goal in 2020/21, and of course with no assists in his career, there is no career high there. Morin finished his last NHL season, and last pro season in general, with one goal in 20 games with the Flyers, as well as two points in seven games for AHL Lehigh Valley. Morin, 26, made the decision to retire because of the recurring knee injuries over the years, but deserves some credit for his persistence in keeping coming back. According to this article from The Hockey News, the Flyers will look to find him a role in the organization post-retirement.
