Will Jeremy Morin Stick In Chicago?
Best Case Scenario: Yes. Finally. It’s about time.
Morin was sent to Columbus purely because of Joel Quenneville’s unwillingness to give the kid any playing time. Now that he’s back in black (and red and white), with some consistent NHL play under his belt, his experience will propel him onto the Blackhawks’ roster, to the delight of fans and management alike.

Worst Case Scenario: Nope. More time on the Rock for J-Mo.
Morin certainly doesn’t have a spot cut out for him this year. He will have a lot of competition for just a few forward spots, and most of his counterparts are a lot younger, and have far more upside. If Morin doesn’t have what it takes to crack the ‘Hawks’ roster, it’s back to the Rockford IceHogs, and his days are numbered, once again.
