With the #81st pick 2009 NHL draft, the Flyers select G – Adam Morrison

General Manager Paul Holmgren made it clear he wanted to improve the organization’s goaltending depth and he did just that by selecting Saskatoon Blades’ goaltender Adam Morrison, 81st overall in the 2009 NHL entry draft.

“He’s a guy all of our scouts liked,” said Holmgren. “We sent Neil Little to watch him play a number of times.  He played back up with the Blades last season, but he is going to play a lot more next year.  We like our pick, we have done our homework on him.”

At 6’3, 170 lbs., Morrison is a very raw talent.  He has the size that the Flyers like in their goaltenders and a strong work ethic.  Morrison was the 24th ranked goaltender in the draft, so the Flyers must have saw something they liked.
