Goalie Adam Morrison Joins Bears on Tryout Agreement
(Hershey, PA- April 11, 2017)-The Hershey Bears hockey team announced today that goaltender Adam Morrison has signed a professional tryout agreement with the club.
Morrison, 26, joins Hershey from the Rapid City Rush of the ECHL. The native of White Rock, British Columbia went 16-17-4 with the Rush this season, posting a 2.79 goals against average and a .914 save percentage. He was named the CCM/ECHL Goaltender of the Week twice during the 2016-17 season, an honor he has earned four times in his ECHL career.
The netminder has appeared in 110 career ECHL games with Utah, South Carolina, Reading, Fort Wayne, Greenville, and Rapid City, posting a 49-40-8 record with a 2.77 goals against average, .912 save percentage, and eight shutouts.
