Mark Morrison (born March 11, 1963) is a professional ice hockey player who played 10 games in the National Hockey League (NHL) with the New York Rangers. Morrison is currently an assistant coach with the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League (AHL). Mark is the brother of Doug Morrison.
He was member of the Tulsa Oilers Central Hockey League (CHL) team that suspended operations on February 16, 1984, playing only road games for final six weeks of 1983-84 season. Despite this adversity, the team went on to win the league's championship.
In 1993, Morrison moved to Scotland to play with the Fife Flyers of the British Hockey League (BHL). He took over as Flyers coach midway through the 1995-96 season, winning various Player and Coach of the Year awards over the next 10 years.
Morrison joined the Victoria Salmon Kings of the ECHL as an assistant coach in 2006, where he was eventually named the replacement for Tony MacAulay midway into the 2006-07 ECHL season. He assumed the titles of head coach and general manager at the start of the 2007-08 season and continued to hold that title until the Salmon Kings officially folded on May 7, 2011, when Morrison was effectively relieved of his duties and all of his players were considered to be unrestricted free agents.
On July 20, 2011, Morrison was announced as the assistant coach of then-unnamed American Hockey League (AHL) team in St. John’s, Newfoundland, the St. John's IceCaps (now the Manitoba Moose), the AHL affiliate of the Winnipeg Jets.
