On Thursday, the Anaheim Ducks named Morrison and Steve Konowalchuk as assistant coaches on the staff of head coach Randy Carlyle.
They join in-place assistants Trent Yawney and Rich Preston and goaltending coach Sudarshan Maharaj.
Morrison was an assistant to Keith McCambridge in St. John’s during the four seasons (2011-2015) the IceCaps were the farm team of the Winnipeg Jets. For the last two years, the 54-year old from Delta, B.C., was an assistant coach with the Manitoba Moose after the Jets moved their AHL franchise to Winnipeg.
Before coming to the Jets organization, Morrison was a head coach for Victoria of the ECHL.
Konowalchuk previously was head coach of the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League (2011-17) and an assistant coach for the Colorado Avalanche (2009-11).
