Eagles Acquire Fraser-Lee; Trade Chevrier to Alberta
Surrey, BC - The Surrey Eagles Hockey Club announced on Wednesday that the team has made two trades, acquiring defenseman Ryan Fraser-Lee (93) from the Langley Rivermen for future considerations and sending defenseman Eric Chevrier (93) to the Brooks Bandits in the Alberta Junior Hockey League for future considerations.
Fraser-Lee began this season with the Pembroke Lumber Kings of the CCHL where he put up two points in seven games. He was traded to Langley in late November where he appeared in 10 games for the Rivermen. The native of Grand Rapids, Michigan stands 6'2", 195 pounds and is a right handed shot.
"Ryan is a big defenseman and a right handed shot that will provide some more depth to our back end," said Eagles Head Coach and GM Matt Erhart. "We're excited to have him, and we think it solidifies our defensive core going forward."
Chevrier joined the Eagles midway through the 2011-2012 season. He appeared in 26 games with the team that year, putting up three points. This season, Chevrier scored one goal and four assists in 32 games in a Surrey uniform.
The Eagles would like to thank Chevrier for his time spent in the organization and wish him all the best in the future.
