TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – SURREY EAGLES
For the first time since 1996-97 the Eagles finished the season at the top of the BCHL standings, winning a four-team race for first place. Surrey had a two-point cushion over Victoria, three over the defending RBC Cup champions from Penticton and five over West Kelowna, earning points in nine of their last 10 games to clinch top spot. The Eagles were near the top of the league in both goals for and goals against, scoring 195 goals (fourth in the BCHL) and allowing 149 (third), and had the second-best goal differential at +49. A pair of in-season acquisitions led the way offensively for Surrey – Brady Shaw, picked up from Coquitlam on Oct. 18, had a team-best 70 points, good for fifth in the BCHL, while Adam Tambellini, added from Vernon at the Jan. 10 trade deadline, had 65 points, the league’s 11th-best total. Michael Santaguida carried the load in the Eagles’ goal, appearing in 42 games; he finished with a 29-10-3 record, leading the league in wins and save percentage (.933), while posting the second-best goals-against average (2.28).
