The rundown on forward Jordan Morrison:
2010-11 stats [career]: 20 goals, 55 points, minus-29 rating, 40 penalty minutes in 71 games.
Quote: “We’re looking everywhere. It’s a business for us as well and we need to make the best decision for us personally. Hopefully it can work out and I can come back to the Ontario Reign. if not, I enjoyed my time here and that’s about it.”
Pros: Morrison re-discovered his scoring touch after moving from wing to center and being paired with Alex Bourret — from Jan. 1 on, he was a point-per-game player. He led the team in assists (35), points (55), game-winning goals (4), tied for the lead in power-play goals (8) and was second in goals (20).
Cons: Morrison was also last on the team — and among all 759 ECHL skaters last season — in plus/minus (-29). His all-around game could probably use some work, but if Morrison can’t improve defensively under Karl Taylor it might never happen. Could he be as productive offensively if Bourret, who’s also a close friend off the ice, doesn’t come back?
