McMorrow was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in the 8th round, 258th overall in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft from the Ontario Hockey League.[citation needed] He made his NHL debut for the Sabres in the 2002–03 NHL season on March 22, 2003 against the Toronto Maple Leafs, McMorrow spent the rest of his time with the Sabres' affiliate, the Rochester Americans. McMorrow was not re-signed by the Buffalo Sabres after the 2005–06 season, and subsequently signed with the Chicago Wolves of the AHL.[citation needed] Due to a lack of playing time, McMorrow left the Wolves in 2006 to play for Saint-Hyacinthe Top Design a semiprofessional hockey team in Quebec's LNAH.[citation needed]

McMorrow signed a professional try-out contract with the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL on October 22, 2008, playing for them in the 2008-09 Season.[2]

McMorrow would then go on to sign a contract to play for the Belfast Giants of the Elite Ice Hockey League for the 2009–10 Season.[3]

It was announced that McMorrow would return to the EIHL for the 2010–11 season, to play for expansion team, Dundee Stars.[4] On November 5, 2010, it was announced that McMorrow had left the Dundee Stars by mutual consent[5] signing for the LNAH's Saguenay Marquis shortly afterwards.
