Pre-Game Report: Eagles vs. Wilderness

The Surrey Eagles will try to remain the only undefeated team at the Royal Bank Cup when they face the Minnesota Wilderness on Wednesday afternoon in Summerside, PEI. The two teams have never met before as the Wilderness are the first American team to ever qualify for the RBC.

The Birds are coming off an exciting 5-4 OT win over Summerside on Monday. Brett Mulcahy netted the winner while Adam Tambellini scored twice and picked up the player of the game. Heading into Wednesday's action, Eagles forward Michael Stenerson is tied for the tournament lead in the points with one goal and six assists while Michael Santaguida has the top goals-against-average in the tournament at 1.86.

The Wilderness is 1-2 in the tournament after losing their first two games to Summerside and Brooks before defeating Truro 5-3 on Tuesday. Minnesota qualified for the RBC out of the Central Region. After winning the SIJHL, the Wilderness edged out three teams from Ontario to capture the Dudley Hewitt Cup. Mike Dietrich has led the offensive front for Minnesota all season long. The 20-year-old had 28 goals and 49 assists in the regular season and is coming off a four point game against Truro.
