Eagles Trade Morley to Coquitlam
The Surrey Eagles Hockey Club announced on Friday that the team has traded Brandon Morley (94) to the Coquitlam Express in exchange for forward Brady Shaw (92).
Morley spent the last two seasons with the Eagles, playing alongside his older brother Tyler. In 2010-2011, Morley was named the team’s rookie of the year, and in 2011-2012, he put up 47 points in 49 games, helping the Eagles to a spot in the Coastal Conference final.
“The Eagles would like to thank Brandon for all that he’s given to our program,” said Head Coach and General Manager Matt Erhart. “He’s a hard worker and a mature young man that has a bright future ahead of him. Coquitlam is getting a quality individual.”
Shaw joins the Eagles after a strong start to the season in Coquitlam where he scored six goals and three assists in 12 games. The 20-year-old is in his second BCHL season after finishing second on the Express in goals with 33 last year. Shaw, who hails from Ottawa, is also the son of former NHLer and current St. Louis Blues assistant coach Brad Shaw.
“The Eagles are very excited to acquire a proven goal scorer like Brady,” said Erhart. “He possesses a great release and has always been dangerous against us. We expect him to provide an immediate offensive threat for our hockey club.”
