Alumnus Cameron Morrison taking the road less traveled
Submitted By anightingale on Friday, January 30, 2015
For many young hockey players, the direct route to following their dreams of playing in the NHL is going through junior hockey.  Alumns Cameron Morrison however, has decided to take the road less traveled on and take his talents across the border.

For many years the NCAA was 'foreign' territory to Canadian players and more or less the path less traveled on.  However, in more recent years, the NCAA has become yet another viable option for players across North America that dream of one day playing in the NHL.  Our alumnus Cameron Morrison is the latest player taking the road less traveled.  For Cameron, the road less traveled is the one he feels is the best decision.  I support both options, the NCAA and OHL” Said Morrison in an interview with the Aurora Banter.  The 16 year old from Aurora, Ontario played at the Minor Midget level for the York – Simcoe Express in 2013-2014, where he tallied 43 points in 32 games.   Cameron’s impressive skill set caught the eyes of the North Bay Battalion of the OHL.  He was selected in the third round (44th overall) in 2014 in the OHL priority selection.  Despite attending training camp for the Battalion, Cameron decided he’d rather spend a season with the Aurora Tigers in the OJHL (Jr. A), a team he had already played three games for as a tryout.  His skills and abilities didn’t go unnoticed.  The University Of Notre Dame, a school that Cameron had a great interest in, came calling with an offer he just couldn’t turn down.

Earlier this month, Cameron accepted a full scholarship to the University of Notre Dame to play for the fighting Irish.  While he’s excited for the opportunity, he remains focused on the present and helping the Aurora Tigers in their season.  Cameron joins a forever-growing list of YSE alumni who are climbing the ladder to reach the ultimate goal of playing in the NHL.  We here at YSE are excited beyond words for Cameron and wish him the best of luck in his journey.  We cannot wait to see where the path less travelled on leads!

 Good luck Cameron!
