The Hershey Bears announced today that the club has released forward Jeremy Morin from his professional tryout (PTO) agreement. 

Morin, 27, played in three games with Hershey, registering two penalty minutes. He made his Hershey debut on Oct. 6 versus Syracuse.

Morin has now played for 17 different teams in 11 different leagues.

In an interview last week with the Athletic’s Chris Kuc, Morin spoke about his hockey journey:

“I’m just trying to prolong my career as long as I can,” Morin said last week. “I’m in a different phase in my career than I was five years ago. I just keep grinding and keep going and … I don’t know, I just try to keep playing.”

“It’s tough with the vet rule but Hershey gave me an opportunity to come back (to North America) so I took it,” Morin said. “They have a lot of young prospects here so it’s kind of a waiting game for me right now. There’s always pressure to perform, but especially on a tryout like this, it’s like that even more.”
