In the previous seven years, he had not even received a vote in the Norris Trophy elections. Now Josh Morrissey is mentioned in the company of the biggest favorites like the revived Eric Karlsson, who has already won the Norris Trophy twice, his last winner Cale Makar, Adam Fox or Rasmus Dahlin.

Morrissey is equally relevant on both sides of the field. He is one of the most reliable defensemen in the league and he has a passion for offensive play. He had 46 points (7 goals, 39 assists) in 39 games ahead of the night game against Vancouver, long surpassing his peaks in scoring and assists.

He’s been spinning since the start of the season, surviving episodes as he was credited with one episode after another. His longest streak of goalscoring was eleven games. It was the sixth longest streak in NHL history and only the tenth defenseman to do so. Morrissey has already scored 18 points on the power play, only winger Kyle Connor has equaled him on the team. With four game-winning shots, he shared the defensive lead with Calgary’s Rasmus Andersson.

He owes much of his rise to new coach Rick Bowness. “From our first interview, he said he knew what I had and basically challenged me to push it and take my game to the next level. He urged me to play more aggressively, with all our defense, to be more in the game. The only thing you want is for the coach to believe in you and for you to put in your best effort and find opportunities to improve. I think it really helped me,” said Morrissey.

Bowness knew him as a contender, whether he led the team in Dallas (2018-21) or was an assistant in Tampa (2013-18). “I was already interested then. A great skater with an elite hockey IQ, very technical. When I walked in, I told him what kind of Josh Morrissey I want to see. Beck, against whom I trained for many years and enjoyed his game. And together we will draw out of him it,” the 67-year-old coach explained.

Morrissey didn’t just pop out of nowhere. He was one of the best defensemen in the junior WHL, scored 28 goals in one season, played twice for Team Cada in the Under-20 Championship, won gold in 2015 and was selected to the All-Star Tourment. He skated and passed like Paul Coffey.

Winnipeg winger Josh Morrissey is one of the top contenders for the Norris Trophy.


However, in previous seasons in the NHL, he experienced evenings when the desire to touch the starry sky was very far away. When he felt depressed as a player, he was injured for a long time or experienced the loss of his father, who had died of cancer a year earlier.

When Bowness’s coach told him last Thursday that he was flying to Florida for the All-Star Game next month, he remembered him too. “You go through ups and downs in your career and in life. Sometimes I had to walk far to get here. Dad left not too long ago. I’m still dealing with it. He is not here, but he always thought about what I can achieve. I’m sure he would be proud and look down,” he said.

Defensive solidity and a jump in performance gave Morrissey the attention and fame he deserved. He is spoken of as a contender for the Norris Trophy. According to her, he has already received a new nickme Norrissey. “Funny, it was picked up by the fans of our team. Of course, it is an honor to even be mentioned in this context. With exaggeration, someone understands this or in fact,” he said.

Whether he ends up winning the press vote or not, he has a huge breakout season after a lackluster season and is not finished yet. At this pace, he can easily approach a hundred points. “It helped that we got off to a good start as a team. The season is still long, there is a lot of time left, as well as things that I need to work on in order to continue participating in this debate. It keeps me going. I may have changed in the game, but my character has remained the same. I want to progress every day,” added Morrissey.
