Jets send 2013 top pick Morrissey back to junior team

The Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday trimmed five players from their training camp roster.

Among those leaving the club is defenseman Joshua Morrissey, the team's first-round pick (No. 13) at the 2013 NHL Draft. He was returned to his junior team, the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League.

The Jets also sent five players to their American Hockey League team, the St. John's IceCaps: Forwards Adam Lowry, Eric O'Dell, Ivan Telegin and Andrew Gordon. Gordon must clear waivers before he can be assigned.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.

— Coyotes GM Don Maloney on defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson
