Pre-Game Report: Eagles vs. Terriers

The Surrey Eagles will play their final round robin game at the Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup on Thursday afternoon against the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League champion Yorkton Terriers. The winner of the game will advance to the WCC Final to face the Brooks Bandits while the losing team will have to play in the game between the third place and fourth place teams for a chance at the second berth in the Royal Bank Cup.

After dropping the opening game of the tournament, the Eagles have won their last two in a row over Steinbach and Nanaimo. The Birds blanked the Clippers 4-0 on Tuesday evening, thanks in large part to the contributions of Drew Best and Michael Santaguida. Best had three points in the win and is now tied for the lead in tournament scoring with three goals and two assists while Santaguida stopped all 31 shots he faced in a good bounce-back effort.

The Terriers are also 2-1 on the tournament. Yorkton opened with a 4-3 come-from-behind win over Nanaimo before edging Steinbach 3-2. The only loss for the Saskatchewan club came at the hands of the Brooks Bandits by a score of 2-1 in overtime. Forward Tyler Giebel is also tied for the tournament points lead as he's posted one goal and four assists for the Terriers. The Norrish brothers -- Brady and Chase -- have also been key to Yorkton's success on the back end.
