Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Stephane Morin
Centre Stephane Morin was a clever offensive player who played for two different clubs in the early 1990s. His greatest success came in junior and the minors where had more room to display his skill.

The Montreal native was chosen 43rd overall by the Quebec Nordiques in 1989 after leading the QMJHL with 186 points while playing for the Chicoutimi Sagueneens. Morin was named to the league's first all-star team then prepared for his first NHL training camp.

The clever forward played six games for the Nords in 1989-90 but played mostly in the AHL where he averaged nearly a point per game for the Halifax Citadels. In 1990-91, Morin was one of the few bright spots on the lowly club as he recorded 40 points in 48 games. After splitting the next season between the NHL and the minors, Morin no longer fit into Quebec's plans.

The Vancouver Canucks acquired Morin but was chiefly a farmhand for two years. In 1994-95, he led the IHL with 81 assists and 114 points and was voted on to the league's first all-star team. He remained in the league as an offensive force until he tragically passed away, on the bench in Europe with the Berlin Capitals in 1998.
