Surrey Eagles’ Morley takes ‘C’ from brother

BC Hockey League team announced Brandon Morley, 18, will serve as captain for the upcoming season

The Surrey Eagles have passed the captaincy from one brother to another.

On Thursday, the BC Hockey League team announced Brandon Morley, 18, will serve as captain for the upcoming season, which begins Friday at the BCHL Showcase in Chilliwack.

Morley takes the ‘C’ from his older brother, Tyler, who captained the Eagles for two years and this season will play with the NCAA’s University of Alaska-Fairbanks Nanooks.

Beau Orser, Brett Mulcahy and Craig Wyszomirski will serve as alternate captains this season.

Orser and Mulcahy are both returning to the Eagles from last year, while Wyszomirski, a New Jersey native, spent last season with Providence College in the NCAA, but elected to return to junior hockey after playing just four games as a university freshman.

Morley will be one of the younger captains in the BCHL this season, but he is his third season in the league. The Burnaby native was the team’s rookie of the year in 2010/11. Last season he tallied 47 points in 49 games.

“Despite the fact that he’s an 18-year-old, Brandon has a lot of experience,” said Eagles head coach and GM Matt Erhart.

“He’s played two years in the league. He’s been to two conference finals, and he played in the World Junior A Challenge last year. He’s a guy that comes to work every single day at practice, and he has a strong work ethic that other guys can look up to.”
