Morrison has played 56 WHL games this season for the Saskatoon Blades and the Giants, and has put together a 35-17-3 record with a 2.80 goals against average and .900 save percentage with one shutout. The 6-foot-3, 194-pound Morrison is a native of White Rock, British Columbia and is another newly minted member of the Black and Gold organization plucked right out of Canucks country.
