Morgan laces up for first time with team
Over four months after the Kingston Frontenacs made him their first pick in April’s Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection Cody Morgan was finally on the ice at the team’s training camp.
Morgan went right into scrimmage play for his Team Gold Tuesday night. Another scrimmage would follow again in the Wednesday night session.
“(Tuesday) was my first game in awhile so I was just trying to get my feet wet. It was fast paced the whole game to be honest,” Morgan said.
“I didn’t find too much trouble adapting to the speed because I feel I play a pretty past pace style of play. I played with two great players (Sergey Popov and Ryan Cranford).”
The 16-year-old Morgan, who was the 12th player selected in April’s draft, said he has been made to feel at home by the Frontenacs veterans.
“They have been really welcoming. Made me feel like I belong. It’s been good. I enjoy it here. It will be a good year,” said Morgan who is from Maple, Ont., and played last season for the Toronto Jr. Canadiens.
What has impressed the six-foot, 172-pound centre about his first OHL camp is the quality of the players looking to make the team.
“There is no one that really looks out of place. They are all good hockey players,” Morgan said.
