Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bernie Morris
Forward Bernie Morris had a 20-year hockey career which included a six-game stint with the NHL's Boston Bruins in 1924-25. It was the highlight of his career, getting to play alongside the likes of Jimmy Herberts, Carson Cooper and Stan Jackson.

Morris first became noticed while playing with the Brandon Shamrocks of the MPHL when he averaged a goal a game in six contests. Following brief stops in Moose Jaw, Phoenix, Regina and Victoria, Morris settled in with the Seattle Metropolitans of the PCHA for seven years where he most often led the team in goal scoring. During his time in the PCHA he was a seven-time all-star selection.

In a bout of controversy, Morris missed the last part of the 1918-19 season and most of the 1919-20 season while facing charges of Draft Evasion by the U.S. government. It was a difficult time for Morris who had to endure almost a year of questioning and investigations by the authorities. Finally, in March 1920, all charges against him were dropped and he was permitted to return to hockey.

Before the start of the 1923-24 season Morris was traded to the Calgary Tigers where he played for two years. It was during his time in southern Alberta that he was called to play the six games in the NHL with Boston. After being released by the Bruins he moved on to play for the WCHL's Regina Capitals.

Morris's final year of pro hockey was in 1929-30 when he played for the Hamilton Tigers of the IHL.
