Yarmouth Mariners forward Morgan Messenger has been named the MHL’s Pro Design Cresting Ltd Rookie of the Month for September.
During September Messenger scored four goals and assisted on six others in just seven games.
His 10 points for the month ranked him second in team scoring and 5th overall in league scoring, something the league calls an unbelievable feat for a 16 year-old-rookie.
The 5’11”, 175-pound center hails from Barrington.
The Yarmouth Mariners ended the month of September in first place in the league with a 6-1 record during the first month of league play.
Messenger had been called up to play with the Mariners during some of the 2011-2012 season, playing with the team during its successful playoff run. In the spring he was also been drafted by the QMJHL. He was drafted second pick in the sixth round to the PEI Rocket.
Messenger and his Mariners teammate Brendan Nickerson, who also comes from Shelburne County, were the Mariners two territorial draft picks heading into the 2012-2013 season.
