UFA: Derek Morris

This week’s UFA is Derek Morris, or DMo as fans usually call him. DMo at Summer Camp I can say with almost 100% certainty that DMo will not be back next season. With the slew of young dmen chomping at the bit to break into the NHL, DMo’s services aren’t really needed. DMo has been with the team for quite some time (off and on) and I believe his time is done. He is getting up...

Derek Morris continues steady defensive play for Coyotes

His offensive production ranks among the best for those whose primary job description is to patrol the blue line, but veteran Coyotes defenseman Derek Morris isn’t attempting a career makeover at age 35. He’s a hard-nosed, crusty, stay-at-home defenseman, and that isn’t about to change – even if the new twig he’s using is helping him handle the puck better in the offensive...

Wisdom and wood produce synergy for Coyotes' Morris

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Fictional baseball legend Roy Hobbs had the Wonderboy bat. Derek Morris has the Synergy blade. Its resurrection could fast become the stuff of legend. As the story goes, Morris was looking over some of his old statistics this offseason with his boys, Traiten, Presley and Asher, when they asked why he no longer puts up big numbers. Morris was stumped and a little...

Coyotes' Morris and Islanders' Clutterbuck sit out

The Phoenix Coyotes are without veteran defenseman Derek Morris for their game against the New York Islanders. Morris was a question mark for Tuesday night's contest after he missed practice in Arizona on Monday because of an upper body injury, but he took part in the team's morning skate on Long Island hours before the game.

Derek Morris goal from center ice

In tonight's Western Conference Final game between the Phoenix Coyotes and  Los Angeles Kings game, Coyotes defenseman Derek Morris scored an improvable goal on Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick from center ice.

Coyotes player scores from center ice

Unless you’re one of the 13 people that watched Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals between the Phoenix Coyotes and the Los Angeles Kings, you missed this little diddy. Instead of dumping the puck into the Kings’ zone, Coyotes defenseman Derek Morris decided to let one rip at the net. Kings goalie Jonathan Quick wasn’t (say it with me) quick enough. You can’t really...
