Notre Dame goaltender Cale Morris has announced he will remain with the Fighting Irish hockey program for his senior season in 2019-20.

“I’m excited to be returning for my senior year and to get back to work with my teammates,” Morris said in a statement. “There’s a standard that’s been set for Notre Dame athletics and our group coming back knows we have unfinished business. I look forward to getting my degree from the university and being part of a class that continues to add to the Irish hockey history book.”

Morris, who earned the Mike Richter award as the nation’s top goaltender in 2018 and was a semifinalist in 2019, has helped the Irish to back-to-back Big Ten tournament championships by being named the tournament’s most outstanding player in 2018 and 2019.

In three seasons, including the last two as the starting goaltender, Morris is 46-21-4 with a 2.07 GAA and a .938 save percentage. The .938 save percentage ranks first all-time in program history, while his 2.07 GAA and .676 career winning percentage rank second.
