Besides Conor, Morgan has another brother named Noah, who is 22 and plays baseball for the Okotoks Dawgs of the Western Canadian League (West Division).

Despite being drafted as the 41st overall pick in the 2015 WHL bantam draft by the Calgary Hitmen, he opted to pursue his career in baseball.

Morgan NHL Journey And Kraken’s Family

Morgan started his NHL journey after playing youth hockey with the Yellowhead Chiefs of the MMHL and the Tri-City Americans of the WHL.
