The BC Hockey League released its schedule for the 2013-14 season Monday afternoon.
The schedule has been increased by two games to bring the total to 58 regular season games.
The season begins with the 2013 Showcase in Chilliwack, a Sept. 6-8 weekend that has each of the 16 BCHL teams playing twice at the Prospera Centre in Chilliwack in front of scouts from Canadian and American universities.
The Surrey Eagles will face-off against the West Kelowna Warriors Friday, Sept. 6, and the Vernon Vipers the next morning. Both games will count in the BCHL standings.
As was the case last season, the majority of the remaining 56 games of the schedule is against their Mainland Division rivals.
The Eagles will play nine games against the Coquitlam Express and Chilliwack Chiefs, and eight each against the Langley Rivermen and Prince George Spruce Kings.
Excluding the two games at the Showcase, Surrey will play a home-and-home set against each of the 11 teams outside the Mainland Division.
The first home game at the South Surrey Arena will be Friday, Sept. 13 with the Rivermen the visitors. Surrey’s final regular season game is in the provincial capital against the Victoria Grizzlies on Sunday, Feb. 23.
