FORMER EAGLE OLIVER PEER EARNS ROSTER SPOT WITH WINDSOR SPITFIRES
Submitted By Kyle Mundell on Wed 09 08, 21
The Burlington Eagles family would like to offer a huge congratulations to former player Oliver Peer (2003) who has earned a roster spot with the Windsor Spitfires for the 2021-22 season! Oliver started his hockey career with the Eagles as early as Tyke Select in 2010-11, playing with the Eagles his entire career before moving on to the Toronto Jr. Canadiens for one season, and then the Burlington Jr. A Cougars for one season.

Despite not being selected in the 2019 OHL Priority Selection, Oliver continued to work hard and earned a free-agent invite to the Spitfires training camp. He performed well enough to earn the attention of Spitfires' Head Coach Marc Savard, who signed Oliver Tuesday night.

For more information and quotes from Oliver, Savard, and Spitfires' GM Bill Bowler, check out the following article from the Windsor Star:
