2009 NHL Draft: Philadelphia Flyers select G Adam Morrison with 81st pick

The Philadelphia Flyers have selected a goaltender with the 81st overall selection in the 2009 NHL Draft: Adam Morrison of the WHL's Saskatoon Blades.

Here's what Hockey's Future has to say about him...

He didn't get to play very much because of his second seeding behind starter Braden Holtby (WAS). Limited viewings may hurt his draft stock but Saskatoon coach Lorne Molleken is a big believer and Holtby also speaks very highly of Morrison. He will assume the lead role next season for the Blades.

In the limited games that he played, Morrison was 9-1-1. That's impressive, sure, but it's such a small sample size that it's tough to gauge. The Flyers look to be taking a chance on this guy, and apparently very few scouts have seen him play.
