During his first full campaign with Okotoks in 2019-20, Morrison was named to the AJHL South All-Rookie Team. It was Morrisons only full season in the AJHL. He played in 53 games and scored 14 goals and added 16 assists. Morrison comes from a strong hockey family. His father, Brendan, won the 1997 Hobey Baker award at Michigan and scored the game-winning goal in the 1996 NCAA championship game. He went on to play 14 seasons in the NHL.

To make room for Morrison on the 25-man roster, the Fighting Saints transferred forward Cole Helm to injured reserve. He will wear jersey number 23 for the Fighting Saints.
