Wolverines induct Morrison into Hall of Honour

The University of Michigan Athletic Department has announced it will be honouring former Maple Ridge NHLer Brendan Morrison with induction into its Hall of Honour.

He spent four seasons at the school from the 1993-1994 season until 1996-1997, playing 155 games and compiling 284 points. He won the Hobey Baker award as player of the year in his last season.

Morrison went on to play 934 games in the NHL, including eight seasons or partial seasons with the Vancouver Canucks, where he centred Markus Naslund and Todd Bertuzzi on the storied West Coast Express Line.

He will be inducted onĀ  Feb. 16 at a ceremony at the school.
