Eagles eye September start

Surrey Eagles are two weeks away from their first exhibition game of the 2014-15 B.C. Hockey League season.

The team hits the ice Friday, Sept. 5 in Chilliwack in a tilt against the Chiefs.

The following night, on Sept. 6, the Eagles play the Chiefs again, this time in an exhibition game at North Surrey rec centre.

Two more exhibition games follow, first

on Sept. 9 in Port Moody against Coquitlam and then on Sept. 12 at South Surrey arena against Langley.

In July, the club announced that head coach and general manager Peter Schaefer has stepped down from his duties. He will be replaced behind the bench by the team’s new director of player personnel, Blaine Neufeld.
