Jets’ Morrissey breaks franchise record for points by a defenceman in single season

Winnipeg Jets defenceman Josh Morrissey‘s breakout season continues to get better and better.

On Monday night, Morrissey set the Jets’ franchise record for points by a defenceman in a single season when he opened the scoring against the New York Rangers and picked up his 57th point of the year.

Morrisey’s record-breaking goal came on a Jets’ power play when his blast from the point found its way past Igor Shesterkin, his 12th tally of the year.

The 27-year-old picked up his 57th point in his 57th game of the season. Morrisey has absolutely smashed his previous career-high of 37 points in 2021-22.

His stellar play had helped the Jets to a 34-21-1 record as they continue to battle with the Dallas Stars for the Central Division title.

Note: This record is a combination of the Atlanta Thrashers franchise and the current version of the Jets, and not the previous Jets’ records which are currently held by the Arizona Coyotes.
