Surrey, BC - The Surrey Eagles Hockey Club is pleased to announce that captain Brett Mulcahy has committed to attend the College of the Holy Cross, beginning in the 2014-2015 season.
The 19-year-old was named the captain of the Birds in late November and is having a career year offensively, putting up 11 goals and 19 assists in 38 games this season. A native of Kelowna, Mulcahy originally joined the Eagles at the beginning of the 2011-2012 season.
"It's great for Brett," said Eagles Head Coach and GM Matt Erhart of Mulcahy's commitment. "He's a kid that has been one of our hardest workers since he's been here, and he continues to work on his game. He always wants to be on the ice getting better. At the same time, he's very good academically, and Holy Cross is a good school. I'm sure they're going to be really happy that they got him."
The College of the Holy Cross is located in Worcester, Massachusetts. The Crusaders play in the NCAA's Division I Atlantic Hockey Conference.
"I'm very excited," said Mulcahy. "It's something I've been working towards my whole life. I couldn't be happier to go to a great school like Holy Cross. They're second to none in terms of their academic excellence, and I think it will be an excellent fit."
Mulcahy becomes the eighth member of the Eagles to commit to an NCAA school, joining Devon Toews (Quinnipiac, 2013), Michael Stenerson (Alaska Anchorage, 2013), Brady Shaw (Bentley, 2013), Michael Santaguida (Vermont, 2013), Craig Wyszomirski (Merrimack, 2013), Adam Tambellini (North Dakota, 2013) and Dan O'Keefe (Yale, 2014).
The Eagles would like to congratulate Mulcahy on his accomplishment.
