His goal came on the power play and would prove to be the game-winner. On Saturday night, the first-year skater had an even better game. He had one goal and two assists with eight shots. His total for the two games was two goals, three assists, and thirteen shots.

Morse has three goals, six assists, forty shots, and is a +5 for the season. He is tied for third on the team in both goals and assists.
