Morrow reportedly has become a trade target of the St. Louis Blues, among other teams.
Nieuwendyk addressed those rumors to the Dallas Morning News.
"We had a good talk the other day, and I told him I very much believe there’s a place for him on this team," Nieuwendyk told the newspaper. "I told him I fully expect him to be out there on the power play in front of the net where he’s always been."
The St. Louis Post Dispatch earlier reported the Blues had interest in Morrow for a possible trade. The newspaper mentioned the New York Rangers, San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings as other teams that could be interested.
Morrow said he plans to be with the Stars next season.
"You asked me: Do I want to be a Dallas Star, and the answer is definitely yes," Morrow said. "If they want to trade me or they indicate to me that they don’t want me, then obviously I don’t want to be there or stand in their way. But, until they say that they want to trade me or ask me to waive my no-trade clause, then I’m excited to be on the team and I’m ready to get going next season."
Morrow, 34 in January, has one year remaining on his contract. The forward was limited by injuries to 57 games last season -- he had 11 goals and 15 assists. In 2010-11, he scored 33 goals playing all 82 games.
"I feel good where we are right now, but I also know things change," Morrow said. "Right now, I’m just focused on me and my health. I figure if I take care of that, everything else will work out fine."
The Dallas Morning News reported Wednesday that Roy needs shoulder surgery and could be sidelined until November.

Langenbrunner will turn 37 this month. Last season, his first with the Blues, he had six goals and 18 assists in 70 games.

The Tampa Bay Lightning announced Tuesday the club has signed right wing Teddy Purcell to a three-year contract extension. Financial terms of the deal, which runs through the 2015-16 season, were not released.
Purcell was entering the last season of a two-year contract and would have been an unrestricted free agent on July 1, 2013.
Purcell set career highs last season in goals (24), assists (41) and points (65) while playing 81 games for the second straight season. He led the team with a plus-9 rating, was second in assists and power-play goals (eight), and third in goals and points.
He had an 11-game point streak from Feb. 21-March 8, and played for Canada at the 2012 IIHF World Championship, finishing with two points in eight games.
"I felt like the past two seasons I’ve really played to my strengths, which have helped me become a full-time NHL player with Tampa Bay," Purcell told the Lightning's website. "I really don’t think there is a better fit for me and I still believe I can get better every day, so I’m looking forward to remaining with the Lightning and taking my game another step."
After playing parts of three seasons with the Los Angeles Kings, Purcell joined the Lightning on March 3, 2010 in a trade and quickly earned a full-time NHL job. In 181 games over the past three seasons with the Lightning, Purcell has 44 goals and 82 assists.
