Alex Morgan Returns to Chatham

Alex Morgan Returns To Chatham Maroons

Alex Morgan is returning to the spot his Junior hockey career began, as it was announced this week that the veteran GOJHL star would be returning to the Chatham Maroons.

Morgan, who captained the St. Thomas Stars last season says he’s excited to get back to where he started in 2010-2011.

“Finding out I was going to end my junior career where it all began was something special,” says Morgan, who had 18 goals and 24 assists with St. Thomas last season. “With all odds of winning put aside I have made a great amount of friends here and enjoyed playing in front of a wild fan base. From feeling the nerves of my first game with the team to feeling the sadness of it all coming to an end, whether it be with a championship or not, I will be pleased to have had so many memorable experiences with such a prestigious organization,” continued Morgan about returning to Chatham.

Morgan played two full seasons with the Chatham Maroons, and part of a third before he joined the OHL’s Soo Greyhounds for the 2011-2012 season.

The veteran of close to 200 GOJHL regular season and playoff games says the Chatham organization has a lot to offer, and he’s anticipating an excellent experience with the Maroons this season.

“Chatham is a very unique club,” says Morgan. “The history, fan support, atmosphere in the rink, everything just makes you really take in the full junior hockey experience. When it comes down to it I missed everything about the Maroons and I can’t wait to return to Chatham for the start of the season.”

Morgan will be counted upon heavily to replace the lost scoring of Kyle Brothers and Adam Arseneault along side captain Michael Verboom and the Maroons’ other veterans.
