The Vernon Vipers have completed their second trade in four days sending forward Chase McMurphy and future considerations to the Surrey Eagles in exchange for forward
Brett Mulcahy and future considerations.

Mulcahy is a 20 year old veteran of the BCHL having played in over 200 games.  He led the Eagles in goals with 23 while also adding 12 assists for 25 points.  The Kelowna native will bring some key leadership having served as the Eagle captain the last two seasons and was a very big part of Surrey’s run to the RBC Cup last season.  Mulcahy is not a stranger to the Interior Conference having played just over a year with the West Kelowna Warriors.  He is committed to Holy Cross for next season.

McMurphy joined the Vipers early this season after starting the year in the USHL.  He played in 18 games this season as a Viper and tallied 5 goals and 2 assists.

Mulcahy is expected to join the Vipers tomorrow and suit up Friday night when the Vipers host the Penticton Vees.

The Vipers would like to thank Chase for his contributions to the hockey club and welcome Brett to the team.

For more information please call the Viper office at 250-542-6022.

Eagles Acquire Forward, Futures From Vipers

Monday, January 6, 2014 - Submitted by Surrey Eagles

The Surrey Eagles have completed a trade with the Vernon Vipers, acquiring forward Chase McMurphy (94) and future considerations in exchange for forward Brett Mulcahy (93) and future considerations.

McMurphy, a native of Chestermere, Alberta, recorded 5 goals and 7 points with Vernon after beginning the 2013-14 season in the USHL. In three previous Junior "A" seasons with the Alberta Junior Hockey League's Calgary Mustangs, the 19 year-old scored 48 goals and 126 total points. McMurphy is committed to the University of Alaska-Fairbanks for the 2015-16 season.

McMurphy is expected to make his Surrey debut Friday, January 10th when the Eagles visit Prince George.

Mulcahy, the outgoing Eagles captain, made 174 regular-season and playoff appearances in a Surrey uniform, recording 104 points. He captained the Eagles to their fourth Fred Page Cup championship, a Western Canada Cup championship and an RBC Cup semi-final berth last season, earning an NCAA commitment to Holy Cross in the process.

The Eagles organization would like to thank Brett Mulcahy for his countless contributions to the club on and off the ice, and wish him the best of luck with the Vernon Vipers as they prepare to host the RBC Cup in May. The club would also like to welcome Chase McMurphy to Surrey.

The Eagles return home Friday, January 17th to face the Trail Smoke Eaters at South Surrey Arena. Game time is 7:00 pm. For ticket information, call the Eagles office at (604) 531-GOAL (4625) or secure your seats online at
