More bad luck for Morin.
Lehigh Valley Phantoms defenseman Sam Morin will miss the remainder of the Calder Cup Playoffs after suffering a right knee injury in Game 4 of the Second Round. Morin recently returned from another injury, but his injury-riddled season will come to an end due to another injury.
Morin went into the boards and appeared to twist his knee during the first period of the five-overtime game last week.
“He’ll have the surgery once the swelling goes down in his knee,” Phantoms coach Scott Gordon told Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer on Wednesday.
Samuel Morin’s season is over and he will have knee surgery. Tough break for the 6-7 D-man who has had a series of injuries this season. #Flyers

Morin played in two games this season with the Flyers, and played in just 15 regular season games with the Phantoms.
The surgery could impact Morin’s readiness for training camp in September.
It’s a tough break for Morin, who missed out on a chance with the Flyers last season and looked primed to have a good shot next season. He’ll be in the mix with Travis Sanheim, Robert Hagg, and Philippe Myers as young defensemen looking to make their mark next year.
