Grandview's Morrisseau is all geared up for Regina Pats season

After an injury, last season, which resulted in a trade, Grandview's Koby Morrisseau is continuing his competitive hockey career this season as a part of the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League.

"It's been really good to get recovered and start playing again," said Morrisseau. "I really like the organization over here, and I think it's going to be a great new start for me."

Last season, Morrisseau played 22 games for the Spokane Chiefs and he put up two points and 11 penalty minutes before being traded to Regina after his trade.

"It's been very welcoming so far," said Morrisseau. "We have a great coaching staff, and the players are great too."

Morrisseau notes staying away from the injury bug will be a big goal of his this year.

"You have to work really hard," said Morrisseau. "It's all about being mentally focused and prepared. It's a different experience here because you're playing against bigger and stronger players. My body has to be in good physical shape all the time."

In two games so far in the preseason, Morrisseau has two points, one of which was a goal against Brandon on Saturday.

"It felt really nice," said Morrisseau. "Just to feel like I'm back again and get my name up on the scoreboard. It was great."

The Pats are back on the ice this weekend in a home and home with the Prince Albert Raiders.
