7th year right wing Jeremy Mornin(26) bounces to his fifth team in just over a year, as he is traded from Tampa Bay Lightning organization, who picked him up on the opening day of unrestricted free agency to Arizona Coyotes.

He played short stints back with initial contract team Chicago Blackhawks, Toronto Maple Leafs and San Jose Sharks, where he was shipped exclusively to the minors for the full run of 2015/2016.

Originally an Atlanta Thrashers‘ 2nd round pick in the 2009 draft (#45 overall), he was sent to the ‘Hawks before he ever laced up for a regular season game in their system.

The 6’1″ 190 lbs. forward took an interesting path to pro hockey starting with a year in tier 3 juniors, then two seasons for the USNDTP team before heading up north for a season with Kitchener Rangers of the OHL.

He also won some gold, silver and bronze hardware at the World Junior Championships along the way.

He’s appeared in NHL games through the first five years of his pro career, including a best 43 contests in 2014/2015.

After the transaction the 24-year old headed back to the minors joining Tuscon Roadrunners.

He is set to become a restricted free agent at the end of the current calendar but the smart move would be to get him signed to see if he can break the young lineup for 2017/2018 to see if he can contribute.
