He was selected by the Winnipeg Jets in the 1st round (13th overall) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Morrissey is rated as a top prospect who fulfilled the expectation to be a first round selection at the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.[2] During the 2012-13 season he played with Team Canada to win gold medals at both the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament[3] and the 2013 IIHF World U18 Championships.[4]
