Prince Albert Raiders defenceman Josh Morrissey was selected 13 overall by the Winnipeg Jets at the 2013 National Hockey League Entry Draft in New Jersey this afternoon.

 

The 6’, 185-pound blueliner recorded 15 goals and 32 assists for 47 points and a plus-14 rating last season for the Raiders, tops among team defencemen in all three categories. The Canadian Hockey League Scholastic Player of the Year also recorded 5 power play goals and 4 game winning goals in the 2012-2013 campaign.

 

Following the conclusion of the Raiders playoffs, Morrissey won gold with Team Canada at the 2013 World Under-18 Championships in Sochi, Russia, where he led the tournament in plus/minus and finished second in defenseman scoring. His efforts were recognized by tournament brass, as he was named one of Canada’s top three players in the tournament.

Morrissey follows in the footsteps of teammates Mike Winther, who was drafted in the second round last year as well as Mark McNeill and Harrison Ruopp, who were selected in the first and third rounds in 2011, respectively. 

The Calgary, Alberta native became the 15th player in Raider history to be drafted in the first round of the NHL Entry Draft, and is the 82nd player to be drafted since the team joined the WHL in 1983.

My name is Mitch and like most Canadian kids I was introduced to hockey at a very young age and fell in love with the game. I have played, I have coached, I even scouted in WHL for 15 years. I spend half my time in Winnipeg, MB and the other half in San Tan Valley, AZ. I am a season ticket holder for The Winnipeg Jets and my wife and I attend The Phoenix Coyotes games. I am involved in 3 or 4 fantasy leagues, I enjoy hockey shows on radio or TV, TSN or SportsNet, ESPN or NBC Sports and Fox Sports Arizona. You get the picture, hockey is a big part of my life.
