Surrey Eagles forward Robert Lindores will play next season at Northern Michigan University.

Surrey Eagles forward signs NCAA deal

Eagles forward Robert Lindores has signed to play next year with the NCAA's Northern Michigan University Wildcats.

Surrey Eagles winger Robert Lindores is the latest to sign his name to an NCAA scholarship, inking a deal last week with the Northern Michigan University Wildcats.

Lindores, 21, agreed to the deal after the conclusion of the Eagles’ season; the South Surrey-based BC Hockey League team was bounced by the Powell River Kings in the second round of playoffs earlier this month.

The Port Alberni native played four full seasons in the BCHL, the last two with Surrey after being acquired by the team in a trade with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs.

The 2011/12 season was easily Lindores’ best of his junior career, he scored 26 goals and tallied 61 points in 58 games with the Eagles, besting his previous season-best marks by 17 goals and 40 points.

The six-foot-one, 200-pound forward served as one of the Eagle’s alternate captains this past season, and was one of the team’s top two-way players.

He is the third BCHL player to commit to Northern Michigan this season, joining Powell River’s Cohen Adair and Vernon Vipers’ Darren Nowick.

Lindores brings to 10 the number of Eagles from last year’s team who’ve inked college commitments. Others include Steve Koshey (Alabama-Huntsville), Tyler Morley (Alaska-Fairbanks), Devon Toews (Quinnipiac), Andrew Hunt (Clarkson), Matt Cronin (Merrimack), Alex Hagen (St. Lawrence), Michael Stenerson (Alaska-Anchorage) and three players who arrived in Surrey with deals already in hand – Charlez Orzetti (Yale), Brandon Tanev (Providence) and Brayden Jaw (Harvard).
