Mariners fans were excited to hear that defensemen Marc-Olivier Crevier-Morin was re-signed by the Mariners on Tuesday afternoon. The two sides agreed to terms on a standard player contract for the upcoming season. Last season, Crevier-Morin was named an alternate and enters his fourth year in the ECHL.
Before making the jump to pro, the defensemen played just under 200 games in four seasons spanned with the Gatineau Olympiques. He spent his first two pro seasons with the Wichita Thunder from 2017-2019. In 2017-18, he played 68 games plus six more in the playoffs.
During the 2018-19 season, the lefty played 56 games while under contract in the American Hockey League. He did so with the Bakersfield Condors, affiliate of the Mariners and Edmonton Oilers.
Thanks to a show of leadership since his debut, Crevier-Morin wore an “A” last year on his jersey. In doing so, he joined Scott Savage and Terrence Wallin as alternate captains. This of course behind team captain and defensemen, Zach Tolkinen. In a statement from Riley Armstrong, assistant GM and head coach of the Mariners, he said, “Crev was a great addition for us last season. He surprised me last season with the skill set he has. This coming season I’m looking for him to get more comfortable and confident in his playmaking. Add on the fact that he is well liked in the locker room is huge for us in bringing him back.”
The Canadian is the tenth player to be signed by the Mariners hockey club for the upcoming season. Crevier-Morin, 24-years-old, is also the team’s second defensemen to date. The rest of the Mariners roster can be viewed using the link right here.
