TRURO, N.S. – The Truro Bearcats will have a familiar face in their lineup when they return from the Christmas break.

Connor Morrison, who played the past two seasons in Truro, will join the team on Dec. 29 and will be in the lineup Jan. 6 when the Bearcats visit the Yarmouth Mariners.

“He reached out a couple of weeks ago and had some interest to come back, and for me, it was an easy deal,” said Bearcats coach and GM Shawn Evans. “He’s a kid that we know, we know what he can bring and we know his personality within the group in the dressing room. He played two years here so he might as well finish up his career as a Bearcat.”

Morrison, a forward, had 12 goals and 24 assists in 47 games last season and was third in team scoring.

The native of Georgetown, Ont., wanted to play closer to home this season, and as a result, Evans traded his rights to the Leamington Flyers Ontario junior B team. In 26 games with the Flyers this season, he had four goals and five assists.

The Bearcats will also welcome Noah Archibald back to the lineup in the new year. Archibald has played just one game this season due to injury.

“He’s been back skating in the last month, he’s very close to playing and that adds to the depth of the team,” said Evans.

The coach said he’d like to acquire one additional player before the Jan. 10 trade deadline, but “it’s dicey because the prices are really, really high for a conservative guy like me … just not sure how that’s going to play out at this point.”
