SURREY — The Eagles’ “nest” will be buzzing as the BCHL hockey team celebrates its “silver” season at South Surrey Arena.

The Junior A squad’s 25th- anniversary campaign gets going for real with a home-opener Friday, Sept. 11 against Langley Rivermen.

But first, the Eagles continue to prepare for the season with a pair of home exhibition games this weekend, first on Friday (Sept. 4) against Coquitlam Express and then Saturday (Sept. 5) versus Wenatchee Wild, the BCHL’s newest team. Both games start at 7 p.m.

Following all Sunday home games this season, there will be a “Sunday Skate” with the Eagles, the first on Sept. 13 after a 4 p.m. game against Coquitlam. Skate rentals will be available at the arena.

The team’s Olympic-sized home rink, one of two in the Lower Mainland, was opened in 1991.
