Per PuckPedia, the Blackhawks have signed forward Cameron Morrison to a two-year entry-level contract. Morrison was drafted in the second round by Colorado in 2016 but did not sign with the team and became a free agent.
The 21-year-old Morrison played the last four seasons at Notre Dame. During that span, he recorded 95 points (44 goals, 51 assists) in 149 regular-season games. He had a career-high 27 points in 37 games during the 2019-20 season.
Elite Prospects says of Morrison,
“A big, strong all-around player who thinks the game at a high level and executes plays with purpose and drive. Accelerates well and has no issues getting around the ice with haste; transition game will need some tweaks. Very good vision and puck skills, and has the size to make a difference driving to the net and causing havoc for the opposition’s defense.”– Elite Prospects
Morrison will join an already deep group of prospects on the verge of making the Blackhawks’ roster next training camp.
