Observations:

November 2016 - Another Avalanche prospect making the big jump from Junior hockey to a tougher league, Morrison hasn't disappointed after scoring five points in eight games so far with Notre Dame in the NCAA. The already bulky power forward has grown in both height and weight since being drafted. The fact that 4-of-5 of these points have come on the powerplay and he has a minus-two rating at even-strength is concerning, but as a freshman learning the ropes of a much more competitive league, any production is welcome. Hayden Soboleski

 

July 2016 - The Avalanche selected power forward Cam Morrison with their 2nd-roun-pick of the 2016 Entry Draft. This was higher than he was expected to go in most pre-draft rankings and reports, but the sizable winger and centerman has enough potential to become a dominant player that fans may not mind the gamble down the road. This season in the USHL he earned Rookie-of-the-Year honors after recording 34 goals and 32 assists in 60 games. Hayden Soboleski

 

Morrison is a power forward by nature, naturally using his size to his advantage. His play with the puck is what got him drafted so high - he has the ability to drive the net, cause a commotion, and find the right places to be game-in and game-out. His decision-making and general hockey sense on the ice is one of his strongest assets. Given his combination of smarts, talent, and size, he possesses notable upside both in fantasy hockey and the real game. He will spend his time in the NCAA working on his overall skating and agility, and tuning his game when he doesn't have the puck. 

 

Fantasy Outlook: B

A few years of development still, but a consistent force with power forward potential
