The Ottawa, Ontario native joined the Birds on October 19th after being acquired from Coquitlam. Since the trade, Shaw has put up six points in three games with Surrey.
"While Brady has only been with the Eagles program for a short time, you can tell that he has natural goal scoring ability and big body presence that will translate well at the NCAA level," said Eagles Head Coach and General Manager Matt Erhart. "We're thrilled that Brady has taken the next step in his hockey career and look forward to having him as a part of our team and working with him to help prepare him for the next level."
Bentley University is located in Waltham, Massachusetts -- just northwest of Boston. The Falcons play in the NCAA's Division I Atlantic Hockey Conference, and Shaw is looking forward to playing there.
"I chose Bentley because their academics are second to none. They have a really good business program that I'm really excited about," said Shaw. "It's also a chance to play in a competitive conference, and I feel it will fit my style of game well. They're giving me an opportunity to go in and be an impact guy right away, so it was an offer that I couldn't refuse."
Shaw becomes the fourth member of the Eagles to commit to an NCAA school, joining Devon Toews (Quinnipiac, 2013), Michael Stenerson (Alaska Anchorage, 2013) and Dan O'Keefe (Yale, 2014).
The Surrey Eagles Hockey Club would like to congratulate Shaw on his accomplishment.
