Unrestricted free agent forward Brendan Morrow has agreed to terms on a contract with the St. Louis Blues, signing a one year, $1.5M contract.

Morrow started his professional career in 1999, when he split the 1999–2000 season between the Dallas Stars and the Michigan K-Wings of the International Hockey League. He played his first game with the Stars on November 18, 1999 against the Philadelphia Flyers, and recorded his first points (a goal and an assist) on November 22, 1999 against the Colorado Avalanche. After this season, Morrow was named the team’s Rookie of the Year.  Heading into the 2009–10 NHL season, Morrow ranked 14th on the all-time scoring list for the Stars’ franchise. He has a knack for scoring big goals, as evidenced by his scoring 3 of the team’s last 4 overtime winning goals in the playoffs. Morrow was injured often during the 2011–12 season, missing 25 games because of shoulder and upper back injuries, including 18 matches in the beginning of 2012. Morrow was finally back in March when the Stars activated him from injure reserve on March 9, however he didn’t get to play long before Dallas was eliminated from playoff contention.

Morrow was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins in attempt to load up the club and win a Stanley Cup prior to the NHL trade deadline this past season. In 15 games with the Penguins, Morrow was good enough for 14 points.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
