Thunderbirds, RoughRiders graduate, Lafayette product Morton garners monthly CCHA accolades


The CCHA has announced that its Forward of the Month is Minnesota State grad student Sam Morton.

Morton paced all conference skaters in goals (6), goals per game (0.75), shots (38), shots per game (4.75), power-play goals (2) and plus-minus (+6) in January, while ranking second in points (9) and face-off wins (82).

Leading the Mavericks to a 5-1-2 record in the month, the Lafayette native registered at least one point in five of six contests, including two multi-point outings.

Closing out the month on a five-game point streak, he also recorded three blocked shots at the defensive end of the ice.

Back home, Morton played for the Colorado Thunderbirds and Rocky Mountain RoughRiders.
