Mark Morrison (born March 11, 1963 in Delta, British Columbia) is a professional ice hockey player who played 10 games in the National Hockey League with the New York Rangers.

Morrrison played junior for the Victoria Cougars and won the George Parsons Trophy in 1981. He also played for Canada at the 1982 and 1983 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships.

He was selected 51st overall by the Rangers in the 1981 NHL Entry Draft. He was not expected to make it in the NHL due to his small size (5'8" and 150 lbs.).

In 1985 after several seasons in the minor pros, Morrison went to Europe and played for eight years in Germany and Italy. He also played for Canada at the 1989 World Championship.

In 1993, Mark moved to Scotland to play with the Fife Flyers. He took over as Flyers coach midway through the 1995/96 season, winning various Player and Coach of the Year awards over the next 10 years.

Mark was General Manager and Head Coach of the Victoria Salmon Kings of the ECHL until the team folded in 2011. He was then named an assistant coach of the St. John's IceCaps.
