Morris, the 2018 Mike Ritcher Award winner for college hockey’s most outstanding goalie, posted a 52-28-18 record during his four-year stint at Notre Dame with a .931 save percentage. During that time, he was a two-time Big Ten Tournament MVP and posted 11 career shutouts.
Morris, the USHL Chicago Steel alum, will join a goaltending carousal in the Hawks organization that includes Malcolm Subban, Colin Delia, Kevin Lankinen and Matt Tomkins. The 6-foot-1, 191-pound Morris is expected to be a mainstay in the net for the Hogs with Tomkins, while Subban, Delia and Lankinen will compete for the top three goaltending positions.
