Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Moe Morris
Moe Morris began playing his major junior hockey with the Toronto Marlboros at the age of 16 in 1937-38. He played with the team for four years, and then appeared in 20 games with the Marlboros of the Senior league before finishing the 1941-42 season with the Toronto Kodiacs.

After a brief playing stint with the Toronto Navy, Morris got the call from the NHL's Toronto Maple Leafs in 1943-44, dressing for 50 games where he had 12 goals and 33 points. Morris not only surprised the Leaf organization with his higher-than-expected offensive output but surprised himself. Never before had he been known as a points producer and yet he found his greatest success while playing amongst some of the best players in the world such as Lorne Carr, Gus Bodnar, Babe Pratt and Teeder Kennedy.

Morris remained in a Maple Leafs uniform for another two years but never again came close to the offensive output he had shown in his first year with the team. He was demoted to the Pittsburgh Hornets where he remained for three years before the New York Rangers traded for him and Wally Stanowski for Cal Gardner, Bill Judza, Rene Trudell and the rights to Frank Mathers in April, 1948. He played 18 games with the Rangers in 1948-49

In December 1948, Morris was traded by the Rangers to the Providence Reds of the AHL where he played five seasons. As his career was winding down, he played for the Owen Sound Mercurys in 1953-54, with the team advancing to the Allan Cup. His final year of competitive hockey was in 1954-55 with the Stratford Indians.

In 135 NHL games, Morris scored 13 goals and 42 points.
