Brendan Morrison remains obscure with the Chicago Blackhawks

Published on March 28, 2012 by   ·   No Comments

Brendan Morrison may be a 900+ NHL player. But, for this season, since traded to the Chicago Blackhawks, he’s living a way of life in the NHL often associated with youngsters trying to break into the league.

Morrison has been a healthy scratch for the 18th time during last night’s game against the New Jersey Devils.

The 36-year-old centre was acquired from the Calgary Flames on Jan. 27, with homes of being the No. 2 guy up the middle.

However, Morrison has suited up for nine games, not registering a goal or assist.

From the Chicago Tribune:

“It’s no secret it hasn’t gone the way anybody’s wanted it, me especially. … The whole season has been a challenge.

“I still believe I can do the job. If I didn’t think that, I might as well hop on a plane tomorrow and go home.”

Morrison’s NHL contract expires at the end of this season, earning $850,000. It was just in 2008-09 season, Morrison was a $2.75-million-player.
