Danton Heinen jumps from one championship team to another

Danton Heinen is going from one championship team to another.

Heinen has signed to join the BCHL’s Surrey Eagles for the 2013/14 junior A hockey season.

The Eagles won the Fred Page Cup, as league champions, as well as the Western Canadian Cup. They lost in the RBC Cup national championship semifinals.

This past season, Heinen was a key part of the junior B Richmond Sockeyes’ run to the Keystone Cup.

The Langley Minor Hockey product finished 11th in the Pacific Junior Ice Hockey League scoring race, posting 21 goals and 28 assists in 43 games. He added another 29 points in 25 post-season games as the Sockeyes won the league championship, the Cyclone Taylor Cup (provincial championship) and the Keystone Cup (Western Canadian junior B championship).

Heinen, who turns 18 on July 5, played two BCHL games with Merritt last season as well.

“I’ve heard a lot of good things about the Eagles,” he said.

“They seem like a great organization and I think playing in Surrey will be a great fit for me.

“They know how to win, and I’m really excited for training camp.”
