The Surrey Eagles are pleased to announce the commitment of our team captain and leading scorer, Danton Heinen, to the University of Denver.
Heinen, a native of Langley, was named Eagles captain midway through the 2013-14 BCHL season, and led the Eagles and all BCHL rookies with 62 points this campaign. In 59 career BCHL games with Surrey and Merritt, Heinen has amassed 29 goals and 64 points, all while compiling only 8 minutes in penalties.
Prior to joining the Eagles, Heinen was a member of the Richmond Sockeyes team that was named Western Canada Junior "B" champions in 2013.
Heinen is the seventh player on the Eagles' current roster to have secured a commitment to an NCAA Division I school, joining Jonah & Nathan Renouf (Quinnipiac), Braeden Russell & Philippe Johansson (Brown), Chase McMurphy (Alaska) and Anthony Conti (Alaska-Anchorage).
