Manitoba Moose

1 on 1 with Winnipeg Jets & Manitoba Moose forward Morgan Barron

A chat with the Halifax product heading into his first Jets training camp.

When the Jets acquired Morgan Barron as part of the Andrew Copp trade most folks didn’t know a lot about the Halifax product. Of course having his college teammate Jeff Malott as part of the organization made it a smoother transition (which Jeff and I discussed back in early August). Morgan and I spoke this morning as he gets ready to conclude summer on the east coast and head to the prairies for his first ever Jets training camp.
