White Rock native and Vancouver Giants goaltender Adam Morrison is now a member of one of Vancouver’s biggest NHL rivals, after signing a three-year entry level contract with the Boston Bruins on Thursday.
Morrison is 35-17-2-1 this season with the Vancouver Giants and the Saskatoon Blades, posting one shutout with a 2.80 goals-against average and a .900 save percentage.
“It’s pretty amazing,” Morrison said on the Vancouver Giants home page. “It’s a dream come true. I know I still have a lot of work to do now that they’ve committed to me for the next three years… I’m looking forward to the opportunity.”
Morrison was drafted but unsigned by the Philadelphia Flyers in 2009, and was a free agent until Thursday. He joins another former Giant, star forward Milan Lucic, in the Bruins organization.
With his contract now signed, Morrison told the Vancouver Giants that he can now focus solely on the Giants’ playoff run.
In January, Morrison told The Peace Arch News, “I’m not worried about where I might be playing next year, or what’s going to happen, or any of that.
“All I’m worried about is winning a championship with this team.”
Vancouver is currently tied for fourth place in the WHL’s Western Conference with the Spokane Chiefs, with 70 points.
The Giants and Morrison beat the Victoria Royals last Saturday, 5-4, at Vancouver’s Pacific Coliseum. They face Kelowna on Friday, March 16, in their final home game of the regular season.
