Before he was T-Plush, Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Nyjer Morgan was a hockey player. He played Canadian hockey back in the late 1990′s, playing for BCHL’s Vernon Vipers, the Nelson Junior A Maple Leafs of the Rocky Mountain Junior Hockey League, and a couple of other junior hockey teams before concluding his hockey career in 2000 as winger for the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League. In the story link below a number of his former coaches talk about what Morgan brought to the ice, his demeanor with the team, and the thrill of seeing their former player staring for the Brewers. It’s a pretty good read.
