Morrison started the season in the ECHL before playing his way to Edmonton, where he posted a 10-4-0 record in 21 games. He had a 2.83 goals-against average and .884 save percentage.

Hasek was hurt while playing for the Czech Republic at the Turin Olympics last month. Backup Ray Emery has started in his place for the first-place Senators.

Morrison became expendable in Edmonton after the Oilers traded for Dwayne Roloson on Wednesday.
