The Blades finished first in the East Division with the WHL’s best record and reached the second round of the playoffs. Stanford handled all the goaltending in the playoffs for Saskatoon. Morrison re-entered the 2011 NHL Draft after not being signed by the Flyers but was not selected.
2011-12: Morrison signed a three-year entry-level contract with Boston in March 2012 and made his pro debut with the AHL’s Providence Bruins after spending the year in the WHL with Saskatoon and Vancouver. Morrison stopped 35 shots in a 4-2 loss to Albany in his only AHL game. Morrison began the year with Saskatoon but was traded to Vancouver in October to clear up room for Russian prospect Andrey Makarov. He was 1-1 in two games with the Blades prior to the trade. Playing for Vancouver, Morrison tied for fourth in the WHL with 35 wins and had a 2.75 goals against and .901 save percentage. He was 35-16-3 and had 1 shutout in 55 games. Vancouver finished second in the B.C. Division. In the six game playoff series against Spokane he was 2-4, with one loss in overtime, and had a 3.64 goals against and .874 save percentage.

He appeared in 10 games with the Stingrays as a backup to second-year goalie Ryan Zapolski and was 1-6-2 with a 4.07 goals against and .877 save percentage. He appeared in two December games and one January contest with South Carolina before being loaned to Utah in February.

Morrison has the prototypical size of an NHL goaltender but is very much a work in progress at this point. After having success in junior hockey he struggled to find ice time in his first pro season and missed all but two games in 2013-14. Now healthy he is playing at a high level in the ECHL so there may be some potential. His raw skills and athleticism compare favorably with other young goaltenders.
Morrison attended his third training camp with the Bruins before being assigned to the ECHL's South Carolina Stingrays at the start of the 2014-15 season. After missing nearly all of the previous season, he has played well for the Stingrays. He is now in his third pro season and is in an organization that is fairly well-stocked with goaltending prospects. His progress this season suggests there may be some upside and that — much like another former Bruins' prospect, Winnipeg's Michael Hutchinson — Morrison could have the potential to compete in the NHL one day.
