The Chatham Maroons have traded veteran forward Alex Morgan to the St. Thomas Stars in exchange for cash.

A native of St. Thomas, Morgan played 5 games for the Stars in 2009-2010 as an underager, before playing 85 games for the Chatham Maroons over three seasons where he collected 37 goals and 26 assists for 63 points. Morgan also played 22 playoff games for the Maroons, scoring 11 points.

“Thank you to everyone in the Chatham Maroons organization for taking me in as a rookie and supporting me through my ride up and down during my hockey career,” Morgan wrote on his Facebook page.

“It is time for a fresh start though and I am now proud to be a St. Thomas Star,” he continued.

In 2011-2012, Morgan only played a handful of games with the Chatham Maroons, before playing 36 games with the OHL’s Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, where he scored 1 goal and added 2 assists. He also played 3 games for the Ottawa 67s in 2012-2013.

It is rumoured the Morgan trade will not be the final player change to the Maroons lineup, as sources say the team is close to finalizing a deal to send Brennan Feasey outside the GOJHL’s Western Conference.

The move is the first major change under the new leadership of coach and general manager Mark Davis, who replaced Bill Bowler this offseason.
