Wall of Fame (Burlington City Rep Hockey Club)

PrintWall of Fame

It's time to re-introduce our Eagles Wall of Fame.  In the coming weeks and months more former Eagles players will be added to our wall.  We will start with an impressive list of former longtime Eagles that signed NHL contracts, played in the NHL or were drafted in the NHL.  We will build on this list from there to include all Eagles players that went on to play sanctioned hockey after their time with us.  Also, we will be adding a special segment dedicated to current and former Eagles coaches that played Junior, NCAA, CIS and Professional hockey.


If you notice any errors or omission or would like to share additional information about any former Eagle please email Mike Schutte at [email protected]
