Cory Morgan is well remembered by many Stars fans as he was the team’s main offensive provider in the 2004-2005 season and propelled them to the club’s second playoff championship in four years.
Before making the move to Scotland, Cory had also played in other top North American leagues such as the Western Hockey League, the American Hockey League and the East Coast Hockey League.
The then 26-year-old winger joined the club in 2004 from Swedish Division 1 side, Olofstroms IK and in 31 league games, he netted 18 goals and created a further 21 for 39 points before adding a further 19 (10 goals and 9 assists) in 15 playoff appearances.
The Blue Sky, Alberta native also scored six times and assisted once in 10 Corssover Cup ties but despite being a late addition to the squad, Cory quickly showed his worth as one of the top players in the team.
After that season, Cory moved on but stayed in the UK and spent the next two years with Newcastle Vipers and won a second straight playoff championship in 2005-2006 before heading back to Canada to finish off his pro career over the next four years
Although, as Mark Thompson revealed last week he is still playing men’s hockey back in Canada alongside Mark.
