He was selected by Niagara in the second round (42nd overall) in the 2012 OHL Priority Draft.

2012-13: Moran appeared in 19 games for the Niagara Ice Dogs as a backup to 19-year-old Christopher Festarini in his first OHL season and played for Canada Ontario in the 2013 U17 World Hockey Challenge. He was 7-10 with a 4.26 goals against and .872 save percentage for the Ice Dogs. Niagara finished fourth in the Central Division.
