Sundogs re-sign veterans Morgan, Baker
The Daily Courier

The Arizona Sundogs on Tuesday re-signed forwards Jason Morgan and Kevin Baker for the 2013-14 season, less than a week after the team bowed out of the CHL playoffs.

Morgan, 36, will join the club for a second straight campaign as the Sundogs' captain.

The St. John's, Newfoundland, native was among the top three scorers for the Sundogs this past winter, notching 18 goals and 28 assists in 66 games.

Morgan's longest scoring streak came in December and January when he tallied 16 points in 10 games.

On March 26, Morgan celebrated a milestone when he played in his 1,000th professional game.

"I love the commitment of the team, ownership and fans," Morgan said in a news release. "I'm excited about next year and making it to the playoffs and winning that championship."

Baker didn't join the Sundogs until late in the season, but he made his presence felt immediately.

In 10 games, he recorded eight goals and six assists, even though eight of his points came in his first two games.

Baker, a Kingston, Ontario, native, has played 12 seasons in the pros, collecting 242 goals and 252 assists in 522 career contests.

"We are excited to have both of these guys back with us," Sundogs general manager Chris Presson said about Morgan and Baker in the release. "They are proven goal scorers and bring the experience we're looking for. They have a strong presence on and off the ice, and are committed to being a part of our team and our community."

Arizona finished the 2012-13 regular season with a 32-27-7 overall record and qualified for the postseason as the seventh seed in the eight-team CHL playoffs. The second-seeded Wichita Thunder swept the Sundogs in the playoffs' opening round, 4-0, although three of the four games went to overtime.

Usually, a team that is on vacation will wait for the current season to expire before making announcements. Sundogs were swept in 4 quick games, and now they are signing players??? Bad PR and lack of respect for the other teams still battling for the cup. Poor judgement by Chris Presson.

Question is, will there be another season?

What a circus...

Great news. I hope they promote and keep Catfish Athelli as well. Definately, one of the biggest assets the team has off the ice. He has been instrumental this year to the postive changes for the team and the greater communities. In chino valley alone, he has made an amazing impact.
