Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Doug Morrison
The Boston Bruins in the 1979 NHL Entry Draft selected right winger Doug Morrison in round two, 36th overall. He had just finished his third season of major junior hockey with the Lethbridge Broncos, scoring 56 goals and 12 points in 72 games. His 159 penalty minutes also showed willingness to battle with the best of them. Playing alongside the likes of Darryl and Duane Sutter may well have had an added influence on some of the players and their added feisty behaviour. Morrison returned to the Broncos for his final year of eligibility in 1979-80 but did play in his first NHL game with the Bruins that year.

In his pro rookie season in 1980-81, Morrison was unable to crack the Boston lineup, so he was relegated to duty with the team's farm club in Springfield. He was, however, called up for 18 games as an injury replacement and responded with seven goals and ten points. Morrison played just another four games with the Bruins over the next two years. He continued to play in the minors for several years before deciding to move to Germany in the fall of 1987. In his first season Morrison had an outstanding offensive campaign, potting 64 goals and 119 points in just 28 games. He stayed in Germany for another year and then opted to try a season in Italy, suiting up for HC Merano, where he averaged a goal per game.

Morrison returned to Germany where he played two more years, retiring at the end of the 1991-92 season as a member of EC Peiting of the Third Division. Morrison's younger brother Mark also had a brief stint in the NHL, playing ten games with the New York Rangers in the early 1980s. He continues to play hockey in the British League.
