Chicago Blackhawks Hockey - As the Chicago Blackhawks continue to surprise people by winning games without Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane there is one member of the team that is really making a case to see some ice time during the NHL Playoffs. Jeremy Morin’s Case for Playoff Ice Time Since being called up from Rockford Jeremy Morin has really shown the hockey world why he has been one of the Blackhawks’ prize prospect down in the AHL. Morin has been doing everything the Blackhawks have been asking of him. He is playing fast and physical and is mounting points to go along with his hard nosed style of play. Morin has been on a roll the last couple of games and it is coming when the Blackhawks need him the most. With Morin playing at a high level the Blackhawks have options to move players around and even sit a guy that might need a break or is just playing bad (cough cough Versteeg). Morin’s Physical Play One of the big reason’s Brandon Pirri (another highly valued prospect) was dealt is that fact he was in Coach Quenneville‘s dog house for never playing defense. That certainly isn’t the case when it come to Jeremy Morin. Morin has been playing a very aggressive game so far and it’s lead to some funny moments like this one from the St. Louis game. It all isn’t just fun and games with Morin though just ask Nashville’s Roman Josi (click the button to see the hit) Morin Blows Up Josi Morin On a Roll Take a look at Morin’s numbers from the last 5 games. The goals, assists and plus/minus all look good but the thing that should stand out is the number of shifts and the TOI (time on ice). Both have seen increases and that shows that Q and the rest of the coaching staff are trusting Morin more and more. Also the TOI in the St. Louis game is huge due to the magnitude of the game itself. So, basically, as long as Morin keeps playing hard and making awesome plays like this one to Patrick Sharp there is a very good chance that even with 19 and 88 back Morin still sees some TOI in the playoffs.
