The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed their 2011 first-round draft pick, defenseman Joseph Morrow, to a three-year entry-level contract, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.
Morrow, 18, was selected 23rd overall by the Penguins at the 2011 NHL Entry Draft in June and attended the Penguins' annual prospect development camp at CONSOL Energy Center in July.
We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.
