Two more Eagles off to college

Trevor Cameron and Troy Paterson sign scholarship deals for 2013/14

Two more Surrey Eagles are headed off to play college hockey in the fall.

Earlier this month, the team announced that both Trevor Cameron and Troy Paterson had accepted scholarships for the 2013/14 season.

Cameron – who had major-junior experience prior to joining the Eagles in 2011 – will play next year at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in Calgary. Paterson – who missed the second half of the 2012/13 BC Hockey League season due to injury – will head south to play at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, which plays in the NCAA’s Div. 3.

Cameron, who came to the Eagles from the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League’s Notre Dame Hounds in a 2011 trade, put up 52 points in 84 regular-season games over two seasons, and was a key contributor to the Eagles’ run to the RBC Cup this past season, tallying 20 points in 27 playoff games.

“We’re very proud of Trevor for taking the next step in his hockey career,” said Matt Erhart, former head coach and general manager of the Eagles. “He was a tireless worker with the Eagles and was one of our leaders this past year. As his numbers proved throughout the playoffs, he was a key part of our run.”

The 20-year-old Paterson, the son of former Eagles’ owner Ronnie Paterson, was acquired by the Eagles from the Cowichan Valley Capitals in January, but his season was cut short soon after when he suffered a lower-body injury.

The blue-liner finished the year with four goals and nine assists in 29 games. He played just two games with the Eagles before being sidelined.
