Semiahmoo Minor Hockey alum – and former Surrey Eagle – Sam Chatterley will play this fall at Simon Fraser University.

Former Surrey Eagle forward set to join SFU

Semiahmoo Minor Hockey alum Sam Chatterley joins university squad after wrapping up junior ‘A’ career in Saskatchewan

A former Surrey Eagle is set to continue his hockey career on Burnaby Mountain.

Last week, Sam Chatterley – a Semiamhoo Minor Hockey Association alum – committed to play next season with the Simon Fraser University Clan.

Chatterley, a forward, has spent the last two seasons at the junior ‘A’ level, split between the Eagles and the Kindersley Klippers of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. Over 90 games split between the two teams, he tallied 11 goals and 14 assists.

Chatterley will be expected to add some grit to the SFU lineup, a news release from the team notes.

“Sam is the type of player you are happy to have on your team, but is a real handful to play against,” said SFU assistant coach Tom Spencer, who coached Chatterley as a major-midget player with the Valley West Hawks.

Head coach Mark Colette praised the forward as someone who “is willing to do whatever it takes to… help the team win each night.”

Chatterley will be the fourth member of the SFU team from Surrey, joining Mac Barden, Jordan Liem and Tyler Basham. All three local minor-hockey associations – Surrey, Cloverdale and Semiahmoo – are represented on the team’s current roster.

SFU plays in the BC Intercollegiate Hockey League, a circuit that includes Castlegar’s Selkirk College, Trinity Western University, the University of Victoria and Eastern Washington University in Cheney, Wash.
