Brendan Morrison is a man without a contract no longer. One day after being released by the Vancouver Canucks, Brendan Morrison has chosed to sign with one of their main rivals, the Calgary Flames.
Morrison will likely play on one of the top two lines in Calgary and may even get some time against a man he used to make a living against checking closely, Jarome Iginla.
As TSN is reporting, The Flames have been looking to add a centre after a rash of injuries struck them down the middle. Daymond Langkow, Matt Stajan and David Moss are all expected to miss time, while Olli Jokinen just returned from a back muscle injury. Morrison should add some veteran experience and play-making ability and may well work his way on to one of the Flames' top two lines.
The deal is for one year and is worth a reported $725,000.
While the Flames are looking to fill holes created by injuries, the Canucks meanwhile look to reduce their roster by as many as five more players before opening night.
Here's a clip of arguably the biggest goal of Morrison's career, a triple overtime winner for the Canucks against the Flames in the playoffs a few years back.
