Joey Mormina (born June 29, 1982) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who is currently playing for the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League.

Playing career[edit]

Mormina was drafted 193rd overall by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft from Colgate University. Without a contract from the Flyers, Mormina began his professional career by playing two seasons with the Manchester Monarchs, the AHL affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings.

On July 2, 2007, Mormina signed with the Carolina Hurricanes and received his first callup to the NHL.[1] Mormina consequently played in one game for the Hurricanes before being sent back to the AHL. On July 8, 2008, Mormina signed with the Pittsburgh Penguins and spent the entire 2008–09 season with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. On July 8, 2009, Mormina returned to the franchise that originally drafted him, signing a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Flyers.

On August 5, 2010, Mormina signed a contract with the DEL's Kassel Huskies. However, the Huskies declaring bankruptcy on August 27, 2010, Mormina became an unrestricted free agent again. On September 7, 2010, Mormina signed a contract with the EC Red Bull Salzburg of the Erste Bank Hockey League. After featuring in a European pre-season tournament, Mormina sought a release from Salzburg and returned to North America, returning to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins for the 2010–11 season.[2]
