History

The current Surrey Eagles are the product of numerous town and name changes since 1976. The team started out in Bellingham, Washington, replacing the original Blazers team that moved off to Maple Ridge, British Columbia and eventually folded as the Revelstoke Rangers in 1985.

The first four seasons in the South Surrey were very disappointing for the Eagles as they did not make it past the Quarter-Finals. It was seasons 5 and 6 that the team had its greatest success.

In 1997, their fifth season, the Eagles finished with a record of 47-7-6 for 100 points, and won the BCHL championship by defeating the Vernon Vipers in the Subway Cup. The Eagles then beat the Rocky Mountain Junior Hockey League champions Cranbrook Colts and the Fort McMurray Oil Barons of the Alberta Junior Hockey League to earn a birth in the Royal Bank Cup. In the tournament, held in Summerside, Prince Edward Island, the Eagles went 3-1 in the round robin and beat the Kanata Valley Lasers 4-2 in the semi-final before losing to the host Summerside Western Capitals 4-3 in the championship game.

Season 6, 1998, would bring the ultimate goal, a Royal Bank Cup, to the South Surrey Eagles. This time, in Nanaimo, British Columbia, they cruised through the tournament, ultimately beating the Weyburn Red Wings 4-1 in the final.

The remaining seasons were also very strong regular seasons for Surrey. In 1999 they lost the league title to eventual Royal Bank Cup winners Vernon Vipers. They lost twice in the Semi-finalls in that span and won the league title, Fred Page Cup, in 2005 overcoming Vernon Vipers ,4 games to 1. In the Doyle Cup series, Camrose Kodiaks defeated them, 4 games to 1.
