Eagles name Mulcahy new captain

Nineteen-year-old Kelowna native takes 'C', which has been vacant since Surrey Eagles dealt Brandon Morley to Coquitlam.

The Surrey Eagles named third-year forward Brett Mulcahy the team’s new captain Friday, filling a vacancy that has has existed since the team dealt former captain Brandon Morley to the Coquitlam Express in October.

Mulcahy, a 19-year-old Kelowna native, has posted seven goals and 21 points in 25 games this season, his third in the BCHL and second in Surrey; he spent his rookie season with the Westside Warriors.

“Brett came to our program as a relatively unknown player and over the course of the last season has proven to be a true professional,” Eagles head coach and general manager Matt Erhart said in a release.

“He has been determined to get better as a player, and he has a mature approach to the game that translates from his practice habits to his game, making him an excellent leader for the Surrey Eagles Hockey Club.”

Mulcahy had been an assistant captain this season, prior to being given the captain’s ‘C’. Also Friday, the Eagles named Devon Toews, Brady Shaw and Trevor Cameron new assistant captains, joining Craig Wyszomirski, who has served in that role all season. Toews and Wyszomirski will serve as assistant captains fulltime, while Cameron and Shaw will alternate the third assistant captain’s A – Shaw will wear it at home, Cameron on the road.
