The Surrey Eagles are proud to announce their leadership group for the upcoming 2017-18 BCHL season. The group includes:
Captain – Jordan Robert
Assistant – Jackson Ross
Assistant – Johnny Wesley
Assistant – Domenic Masellis
Jordan Robert will be returning as captain for his second season with the Surrey Eagles. He received the captaincy in the final half of last season from Paul McAvoy, who has since left for Colgate University. Robert, 19, is a Clarkson University commit – which is located in his hometown of Massena, New York. A heart and soul type of player, Robert is a natural leader for the Eagles heading forward.
Jackson Ross joined the Eagles last season after spending time with the Kamloops Storm of the KIJHL. The Centennial, Colorado native is a key defensive cog on the back end, and is another leader by example. He received the team’s Most Improved Player award last season after notching 10 points in 50 games.
Johnny Wesley returns to the Eagles for his 20-year-old season, and will look to take a leadership role both on and off the ice. Praised for his upbeat attitude, Wesley backs it up on the ice with both speed and skill. The White Rock native could be a deadly force on the first line for the Eagles as the season progresses.
Domenic Masellis was acquired at the trade deadline last season from the Coquitlam Express. He quickly became a fan favourite, and a leader in the dressing room. Masselis, who is in his final year of junior hockey, should be another key defensive player for the Eagles this season.
The Eagles open the 2017-18 season Friday night against the Langley Rivermen at South Surrey Arena. Puck drop is at 7 PM. A full crowd is expected, so please purchase your tickets immediately, and show up at the gates early if you are using a voucher.
