Morley Bruce was an avid hockey player as a kid growing up in North Gower, Ontario, a small town in what is now part of the greater Ottawa area. Bruce joined the Ottawa New Edinburghs for six games during the X-Games in 1914. Bruce contributed two goals for the club. In 1915 he played two games with the Ottawa Aberdeens, scoring twice in two games.

In 1916, Bruce played for the New Edinburghs in the OCHL. In eight games he scored six goals to lead the team. The following year, he remained in the OCHL, playing ten games with the Ottawa Munitions, scoring seven times.

In 1917-18, with the advent of the new NHL, Bruce joined the Ottawa Senators for seven games as a free agent on December 7. He was forced to miss the 1918-19 season due to his commitments with the Canadian military during World War One. He returned for his second NHL season in 1919-20, appearing in 21 games, scoring a goal and an assist. The Senators went on to win the Stanley Cup that year, beating Seattle three-games-to-two. Bruce played another 21-games season with the Senators the following year, and the team successfully defended the Cup, beating the Vancouver Millionaires three-games-to-two.

Bruce returned for one more season in 1921-22, scoring four goals and five points. He retired from the game after that year. In all, Bruce appeared in 71 games, and scored eight goals and eleven points.
