There's no such thing as too much offensive firepower.
The Prince George Spruce Kings, one of the highest-scoring teams in the early stages of the B.C. Hockey League season, added skilled forward Shayne Morrissey to their roster on Tuesday.
Morrissey, 20, was recently released by the Tri-City Storm of the United States Hockey League. His junior A rights were held by the Carleton Place Canadians of the Central Canada Hockey League and the Ottawa-based Canadians didn't have a spot for him on their roster. That proved beneficial to the Kings, who acquired his services in exchange for 18-year-old forward Alec Butcher and future considerations.
"I was trying to find another top-six forward and he's definitely that," said Spruce Kings general manager Mike Hawes. "To say exactly where he's going to fit in, we'll wait and see. We'll get him into the lineup and go from there but I definitely see him as a top forward and someone who's going to be able to put up some numbers for us."
Morrissey was a natural point-producer in the CCHL, where he amassed 102 goals and 130 assists in 190 career games. With the Canadians last season, he had 34 goals and 87 points in 62 games.
