Omer Robert Morin

Omer Morin attended Notre Dame High School in the early days of its hockey dynasty in New Hampshire. Starting midway in his freshman year he had an immediate impact scoring nine points. Omer started as a wing and a defenseman in his three years at Notre Dame with the team winning the second, third and fourth New Hampshire Hockey Titles that would go on for another 12 Years. Omer captained the team his junior year and scored a total of 75 points during his high school years.

After his junior year, in 1950, Omer decided to join the work force and became a valuable member of the Berlin Senior Maroons. As a young rookie defenseman on the Maroons team, he scored five goals and 2 assists that season playing on the second line and helped the Maroons win their Fourth New England Amateur Hockey Association (NEAHA) championship.

Known by hockey officials and sports writers for his crashing body checks and accurate “screaming slap shot,” the stalwart defenseman was an important part of the 1954 Maroons team that won the National AHA Championship in 1954.

Omer continued to be a member of the Maroons until 1965. In the 1959/60 season, he was voted on to the NEAHA All-Tournament team and was considered the best all-around player on the ice. Omer was the player/coach for the Maroons in the 1962/63 and 1963/64 seasons, winning the NEAHA Invitational Championship in 1964 compiling a record of 19-19-8 in the two seasons.
