The Surrey Eagles have acquired goaltender Seth Eisele from the Wenatchee Wild and forward Jake Toor from the Coquitlam Express in a pair of separate deals. The Eagles are giving up future considerations on the other side in both transactions.
Eisele, 19, is a native of Lake Elmo, Minnesota and is coming off a Fred Page and Doyle Cup championship season in which he split duties with Austin Park throughout the regular season. At 6-foot-5, Eisele brings size and experience to the Eagles crease for the upcoming 2018-19 season.
“We are excited to add Seth to our roster,” said head coach Brandon West. “He is fresh off a BCHL Championship and Royal Bank Cup appearance. Knowing he’s been through these experiences thrills us.”
Toor, 18, is a name that many Eagles fans will know well. He has spent the last two seasons with the divisional rival Coquitlam Express, although he only managed to appear in 19 regular season games last season. He scored 2 goals and 3 assists, while adding another assist in 4 games during a first round playoff exit against Penticton.
“We are also excited to add Jake to our roster next season,” West commented. “He’s a BCHL veteran and very excited to be an Eagle. Jake has the speed and competitiveness that we need on our ice to make us tough to play against. We look forward to seeing both players at Main Camp in August.”
Both players will be important parts of the makeup of the 2018-19 version of the Surrey Eagles on a roster that has plenty of turnover from the year before, and continues to take shape.
In another deal, the Eagles have sent forward Ryan Brushett back to the Vernon Vipers in exchange for future considerations. The Eagles would like to thank Ryan for his commitment to the team and work ethic during his time in Surrey.
