The summer of good news continued this afternoon as the staff received a commitment from one of the country's top 2000's, Patrick Giles. The 6'3 power forward out of Maryland recorded 42 points in 22 games played for the Richmond Generals a season ago. USHR named him one of the top players at the Northern Cyclone Showcase earlier this year, saying "at 6'3 he is a force and is very difficult for defenders to contain. Uses his frame well to protect the puck and has a nice stride for someone who has grown so much in such a short time"
Don't look now but BC's team a couple years down the road with Giles, TJ Walsh, Jake Tortora, and perhaps Oliver Wahlstrom could be one of the more talented Eagle squads we've seen....after this year of course.
