Playing career

Brenden Morrow started his career with the Portland Winter Hawks of the Western Hockey League (WHL). He played four seasons with them, and was drafted 25th overall by the Dallas Stars in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft. In 1998, he helped lead his team to the Memorial Cup Championship. He began his career in the NHL immediately after his final junior season.

As a winger, Morrow has been a consistent producer for Dallas, garnering between 33 and 49 points every season he has played with them until his breakout year in 2005–06, where he notched 65 points. The new NHL has allowed small, fast, forwards such as Morrow to emerge as solid point-getters. He also broke his career record of penalty minutes with 183. Morrow has been consistent with his +/- rating, finishing his first six NHL seasons with a plus rating.

Starting September 29, 2006, Morrow was named the new team captain for the Dallas Stars. Having recently signed a new 6 year contract, Head Coach Dave Tippett said the Stars' management decided to "expand Brenden Morrow's role in our leadership group and we feel that the time is right to do this." Morrow is the fifth player to wear the "C" since the Stars relocated to Dallas in 1993.

On November 10, 2006 Morrow's name appeared on the All-Star Game ballot for the first time in his career.

On December 26, 2006, Morrow severed two tendons in his right wrist when he was stepped on with a skate in the game against the Chicago Blackhawks. Surgery was successful and he was discharged from a Chicago hospital the next morning. He was activated from the injured reserve on Friday March 16 and returned to the Stars on Sunday March 18 when Dallas played against the Phoenix Coyotes

On May 2, 2008, playing in game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals, Morrow apparently scored three goals, but two of which were disallowed. One was ruled to be a "distinct kicking motion" and the other goal went off his hand as he swung at the puck with his stick. Chuck Carlton of The Dallas Morning News jokingly referred to the feat as the "Brenden Morrow Hat Trick."[1]

On May 5, 2008, Morrow scored the game-winning goal in the 4th overtime of Game 6 in the Western Conference Semifinals against the San Jose Sharks. Tipping in a pass from Stéphane Robidas on a powerplay, Morrow's goal ended both the 8th-longest game in NHL Playoffs history and the Sharks' season, with the Stars winning the series 4–2. Morrow has 3 career playoff OT goals.

Morrow tore his ACL in his right knee in a game against the Chicago Blackhawks on November 20, 2008 and consequently missed the rest of the 2008–09 NHL season.

Personal

Morrow is the son-in-law of former Montreal Canadiens coach and former Dallas Stars teammate Guy Carbonneau, having married Carbonneau's daughter Anne-Marie on 20 July 2002 [2]. They have three children, a daughter, Bryelle (born 2004) and twins Brady (boy) and Mallory (girl), born 11 May 2008).[3]
