ST. LOUIS, MO. - It's Scott Morrow time.

The Carolina Hurricanes' 2021 second-round pick will make his NHL debut on Friday in St. Louis against the Blues, just 10 days after signing with the team.

The promising prospect was outstanding in three seasons at UMass, producing 94 points in 109 games. Now he'll get a chance to show what he can do as he begins his professional career.

Morrow entering the lineup will be one of several lineup adjustments for the team, as Rod Brind'Amour shared pregame that there are a couple of regulars who are "nicked up" and will not play.

The head coach did not specify who, but he did confirm that Frederik Andersen will start in net.

The 34-year-old has been excellent since returning from a blood clotting issue on March 7, publishing a record of 8-1 with a .954 save percentage (SV%).

No goaltender in the NHL who has played more than three games since then has a better SV%.
