Scott Morrow

Scott Morrow played his college hockey for the University of New Hampshire from 1988-1992. In that time he scored 57 goals and assisted on 52 others for the Wildcats. Not surprisingly, Morrow's best season in a New Hampshire uniform came during his senior season (1991-92) when he scored 30 goals and assisted on 23 others for 53 points. That same season, Scott was named to the Hockey East Second All-Star Team.

The Hartford Whalers made Morrow their 4th draft pick (95th) overall in 1988, and upon graduation Morrow joined the Whaler's farm team during the 1991-92 season with the Springfield Indians of the AHL. Morrow lasted two season in the Hartford organization before the Whalers traded him to Calgary in exchange for Todd Harkins on January 24,1 994.

Scott played most of the 1994-95 campaign in the minors, but he did play in four games for the Calgary Flames that season, but did not score.

Morrow was signed as a free agent by the Philadelphia Flyers in the summer of 1995 and he went on to enjoy his best professional season in with the Hershey Bears. He led the Bears with 48 goals and ranked second in points with 93 and was named the team's Most Valuable Player.

Scott was released by the Flyers despite his strong showing for their farm club. No other NHL team picked him up either. Morrow would go on to toil for a number of minor league teams to extend his hockey career.
