NHL Draft Results: Joe Morrow Selected By The Pittsburgh Penguins With Pick Number 23

With the 23rd pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, the Pittsburgh Penguins select Joe Morrow, a defenseman from the Portland Winter Hawks of the Western Hockey League.

Morrow is swift skating, big defenseman, weighing in a 200 pounds on his 6'1" frame. He's the 12th ranked skater in North America according to Central Scouting, and while he doesn't exactly put up a lot of offense, he's a very capable defensive defenseman with a lot of physical strength and the ability to beat players one-on-one, whether he's defending the break or battling in the corner. He scored six of his nine goals on the power play, so while he's not a huge offensive contributor, he can do so on the man advantage.
