Surrey, B.C. – The Surrey Eagles organization is happy to announce the team has committed Tio D’Addario to the team for the 2020-21 season. The ’02’ forward from Montreal, Quebec is the 5th player committed for next season, following Cole Galata, Alec Saretzky, Holden Cardinal, and Matt Connor.
Tio D’Addario is another speedy center for Cam Keith’s roster, as the Eagles Head Coach continues to look for speed, skill and hockey IQ to supplement his returning core for the 2020-21 B.C Hockey League campaign. The young forward who stands 5’10 and weighs 165 pounds played in 35 games split between 2 leagues with the Mount Academy Saints, where he scored 21 goals, 22 assists for 43 points. Tio was the 2nd leading scorer on the Saints last season.
For Tio, moving to the Eagles will be a big jump in his career. Tio admitted he’s, “super excited. I spoke to Cam a lot and he seems like a great coach. The team moves the puck really well, and I’m super excited to join the team and try to help the team out.” Surrey’s puck movement was one of the biggest reasons why Tio chose Surrey, explaining “A lot of smart players who move the puck fast. They can get from one zone to the other in the blink of an eye.”
For Eagles fans, Tio gave a personal scouting assessment of himself. He reports to the fans, “I’m a two-way centerman. I like playing in the offensive zone, and I like being a playmaker. I’ll use my speed to try and make some nice plays.”
Cam was elated to have Tio join the fold. “Tio’s a brilliant two-way center. He has excellent hockey sense and can read the play at an elite level. A skilled playmaker who can also shoot the puck well.” Cam gave credit to his scouting staff for the find, revealing “Tio was brought to our attention from Olivier Filion, our Eastern Canada Scout.”
Welcome to the Flock Tio!
