The Jets have signed Josh Morrissey to an eight-year contract extension worth $50 million.
Morrissey set a new career-high in points (31) despite playing in just 59 games in 2019. With Jacob Trouba now in New York, Morrissey is expected to handle the PP2 duties in 2020, which gives him a potential boost in value. He should be viewed as a reserve fantasy defenseman heading into drafts.
Morrissey (upper-body) will return to the Jets lineup in Game 1.
Morrissey has been out since February 24th but is set to be back for Game 1 vs. the Blues. Morrissey will be back on the top-pairing with Jacob Trouba and has six goals and 25 assists (31 points) in 59 games this season.
Morrissey (upper-body) will be out until at least early-April.
Morrissey suffered an upper-body injury after being hit by Vinnie Hinostroza on Sunday and will miss the entire month of March. Head coach Paul Maurice his “window” to return “opens in April.” The Jets obviously knew this was the case, which is why they went out and got Nathan Beaulieu and Bogdan Kiselevich on Monday.
