Mulcahy Officially Named Eagles Captain
For immediate release: November 30, 2012
Surrey, BC - The Surrey Eagles Hockey Club is pleased to announce that forward Brett Mulcahy has been named the team's captain. The 19-year-old is in his third full BCHL season and has posted seven goals and 14 assists in 25 games this year.
"Brett came to our program as a relatively unknown player and over the course of the last season has proven to be a true professional," said Eagles Head Coach and General Manager Matt Erhart. "He has been determined to get better as a player, and he has a mature approach to the game that translates from his practice habits to his game, making him an excellent leader for the Surrey Eagles Hockey Club."
Mulcahy played his first year in the league with the Westside Warriors before joining the Eagles for the 2011-2012 season. Last year, Mulcahy had 19 points in 57 games, helping the Eagles to a spot in the Coastal Conference final. The Kelowna native was named an assistant captain at the beginning of this season and will now inherit the C.
The club has also named Devon Toews, Brady Shaw and Trevor Cameron as new assistant captains, joining Craig Wyszomirski. Because only three players are allowed to wear the A on their jerseys in a given game, Shaw will wear it at home while Cameron will wear it on the road.
Toews is in his second season with the Eagles and has the most points of any defenseman on the team this year. The Abbotsford native will make the jump to the NCAA next year as he has committed to play at Quinnipiac University.
Shaw was acquired from Coquitlam in mid-October and has posted 19 points in 13 games since joining the Birds. The 20-year-old forward has committed to attend Bentley University next season.
Cameron joined the Eagles midway through the 2011-2012 season after spending time with the Swift Current Broncos of the WHL. The native of Mission has four goals and five assists this year.
