Despite an impressive resume that includes 542 career points and an Olympic gold medal, Brenden Morrow has yet to sign an NHL contract for the upcoming season.

Per ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, however, that may change soon.

“Things are starting to happen now,” the former Stars captain said Friday.

“I’ve actually got a few offers that I’m mulling over at the moment. It’s a tough marketplace, they’re not the biggest offers or what I had been hoping for, but at this point I just want to get playing again. So I’m mulling over these offers.”

According to LeBrun, Morrow may be willing to sign a one-year deal, which may help assuage any worry about the veteran’s ability to stay healthy.

“I get what teams are concerned about, I was plagued with some injuries a couple of years ago,” said Morrow.

Carolina is one team that’s expressed interest in Morrow, but he wasn’t divulging any potential destinations today.

“I want to be on a team where I think I can win, where I think I can contribute to a winner,” he said recently. “I don’t have a lot of years left, so I’d love to get a couple of runs in there.”

        Fairly certain the “tough market” was referring to the free agent market, not the team he’s looking at.

    Brenden Morrow is the ultimate hockey player, he’s a leader and tough as nails. I will watch what ever team is smart enough to sign him.

      Maybe years ago. Now he’s no show Morrow. He proved that last year.

    “Dont have many years left” by the sound of you may not have any left. Heres to hoping he does have at least one.
