The Surrey Eagles have officially acquired forward Cristophe Tellier from the Wenatchee Wild in exchange for Dallas Farrell. Farrell came to the Eagles from the Coquitlam Express as part of the future considerations received in the Ty Westgard trade on January 10th.
The 2000-born Tellier netted 30 points in 53 games last season with the Wild, then added 4 more in the playoffs. He is committed to play for Quinnipiac University in the 2020-21 season. He spent the previous two seasons playing with the Iowa Wild AAA program before choosing to play his rookie BCHL season with the Wenatchee Wild.
A native of Sherbrooke, Quebec, Tellier brings even more speed and skill to Surrey, who have been heavily reworked this offseason by general manager Blaine Neufeld and head coach/associate GM Cam Keith. The staff believes that Tellier should fit in well on the Olympic-sized ice with those attributes. He was named third star after scoring a three-assist performance in his lone appearance at South Surrey Arena in 2018-19.
The Eagles have announced a total of eight new recruits for next season as of June 1st, but this is the first trade of the offseason. The team is expected to make even more movement over the next few weeks. Make sure to keep checking SurreyEagles.ca for all of the details!
