BCHL extra: Fourth Eagle commits to Catamounts

Brady Shaw joins former Surrey Eagle teammates Michael Stenerson, Michael Santaguida and Drew Best in committing to Vermont.

Graduating Surrey Eagle Brady Shaw has committed to the University of Vermont for the 2013-14 season.

The 20-year-old was a big part of Surrey’s deep playoff run, netting 31 points in 27 games as the Eagles advanced to the Royal Bank Cup.

Shaw came to Surrey in a trade with Coquitlam early last season, and had 70 points (38 goals) in 54 regular season games.

He is the 13th member of the 2012-13 Surrey Eagles to commit to an NCAA school, and the third to commit to Vermont. Forward Michael Stenerson and goalie Michael Santaguida already signed on with the Catamounts.

“I visited Vermont with Michael Santaguida, knowing it was probably a front runner with Stenerson and Santaguida going and then (Drew) Best going in a couple of years,” Shaw said. “I went down there and checked it out, and it’s everything I was looking for in a school and a hockey team, so I decided that I didn’t need to see any other schools.”

Other Eagles heading to the NCAA ranks this fall are Devon Toews (Quinnipiac), Craig Wyszomirski (Merrimack), Adam Tambellini (North Dakota) and Dan O’Keefe (Yale).

Players with commitments the following fall are Brett Mulcahy (Holy Cross), Drew Best (Vermont), Demico Hannoun (Michigan Tech) and Jordan Klimek (Northern Michigan).

The University of Vermont is located in the city of Burlington. The Catamounts play as a division-one team in the NCAA’s Hockey East Association.
