Winnipeg, MB – The Manitoba Moose Hockey Club, in conjunction with the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks, announced today Mark Morrison has joined the Ducks staff as an assistant coach.
Morrison, 54, joins former Manitoba Moose head coach and Stanley Cup Champion, Randy Carlyle, behind the Ducks bench.
Morrison’s ties to the Moose go back to the 2006-07 season as head coach of Manitoba’s ECHL affiliate, the Victoria Salmon Kings. He took over as head coach midway through the season and guided the team to a 173-133-3-24 over more than four campaigns.
In 2011-12, Morrison signed on with the Winnipeg Jets’ AHL affiliate as an assistant coach with the St. John’s IceCaps. The Delta, BC native then relocated with the team when the Moose made their return to Winnipeg. During Morrison’s time with the team, the Moose/IceCaps posted a record of 208-195-28-25 while reaching the Eastern Conference Final in 2012 and Calder Cup Final in 2014.
