Veteran Morrison to get Canucks tryout @NHL

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Veteran center Brendan Morrison will attend the Vancouver Canucks training camp on a professional tryout contract.

Morrison is a free agent after scoring 12 goals and 42 points in 74 games with Washington last season. The 35-year-old forward has 187 goals and 547 points in 829 career games with five NHL teams, including parts of eight seasons with the Canucks from 1999 to 2008.

Morrison had 393 points in 543 games in Vancouver, where he centered a dominant line with Todd Bertuzzi and Markus Naslund for four seasons. But he was slowed by a torn ACL late in 2008 and split the following season between Anaheim and Dallas before being signed by Washington.
