The Portland Winterhawks have signed 15-year-old center Reed Morison.
Morison currently plays for the CRAA Gold Team, located in Calgary, Alberta, in the Alberta Midget Minor Hockey League. He leads his team and ranks fourth in league scoring with 22 goals and 35 assists for 57 points in 29 games this season. The Winterhawks added Morison to their protected list in October.
"We have been impressed with Reed's development since listing him in October. He has the size and puck skills which will allow him to be an impact player in the WHL," said Portland Winterhawks General Manager & Head Coach Mike Johnston.
