Anaheim Ducks Expected to Announce Brendan Morrison Signing Tomorrow

Ken ArmerSenior Writer IJuly 7, 2008

The Anaheim Ducks have reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract with unrestricted free-agent Brendan Morrison. The deal is expected to be announced on Tuesday. The 32-year-old is expected to center the Ducks second line, and complement number 1 center Ryan Getzlaf.

Morrison was a four-time 20-goal scorer with the Canucks, spending several seasons centering former Duck winger Todd Bertuzzi. Morrison scored a career-high 84 points in 2005-2006, but slipped to 25 points in 39 games last season. Morrison’s season was cut short due to a torn ACL injury on his right knee. Morrison is underwent knee surgery on April 7 and is expected to be ready for training camp come September.

Although many other NHL teams showed interest, it is thought Morrison wants to be reunited with former Canucks GM Brian Burke.

I will dive into more information on Morrison once the Ducks announcement tomorrow, so stay tuned.
