Born in Brandon, Manitoba, Morris played for several senior teams in Manitoba and Saskatchewan before joining the Victoria Aristocrats of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association (PCHA) in 1914. He moved over to Seattle the following season, and played eight seasons for Seattle, and was a member of the Stanley Cup champion 1917 team. He played in two other Finals, the ill-fated 1919 series, and the 1923 series. He had an outstanding 1917 series, scoring 14 goals in four games. He missed part of the 1918-19 and all of the 1919-20 seasons because of charges of draft evasion during World War I. When those charges were dropped Morris returned to playing hockey.

From 1925 unil 1930, he finished his career with various teams in the minor California Pro League, the Canadian Professional, Prairie. and International League.
