If you check ROOT Sports' schedule for Friday night, you'll see "WHL Hockey: Spokane at Portland" at 10:00 PM. Wait, what?
It turns out that Penguins 2011 first-round draft pick Joe Morrow plays for the Portland Winterhawks (and has for several years), so this broadcast gives Pens fans a chance to watch him play. Cool, huh?
This season, Morrow has 16 goals and 37 assists in 51 games for the Winterhawks.
