Eagles exchange Euro defencemen

By Randy Russon

Soo Eagles of the North American Hockey League have dealt Latvian-born defenceman Kristofers Bindulis to the Des Moines Buccaneers of the United States Hockey League and replaced him with Slovakian-born defender Patrik Koch.

Bindulis, who has a 1995 birth date, was in his second season with the Eagles. In 28 games this 2014-2015 season, he had 1 goal, 5 assists, 6 points.

The 6-foot-1, 190 pound Koch, who was born in 1996, played in 23 games with Des Moines this season and had 3 goals, 4 assists, 7 points.

“We did our homework on Patrik and watched a lot of tape on him,” Eagles coach-general manager Bruno Bragagnolo told “We really like what he can do from an offensive standpoint.”

The Eagles, who are in second place in the NAHL North Division with 37 points from a record of 18-16-1, are in Springfield for games tonight and Saturday. The Jr. Blues are tied for fifth in the North with 30 points from a record of 14-16-2.

Eagles swoop to road sweep

By Randy Russon

Buoyed by the goal-scoring of Mitch Vanderburg and backed by the goal-tending of Jack Berry, Soo Eagles fashioned a weekend road sweep of the Springfield Jr. Blues.

The back-to-back victories to begin 2015 lifted the Eagles record to 20-16-1 and kept them in sole possession of second place in the North Division of the North American Hockey League.

On Friday, Vanderburg scored three goals and Berry made 39 saves in a 5-3 Soo triumph over Springfield.

On Saturday, Vanderburg scored again and Berry stopped 35 more shots as the Eagles upended the Jr. Blues 4-1.

Vanderburg — who is a nephew to former Ontario Hockey League scoring star Mike Wolak (Kitchener Rangers, Belleville Bulls, Windsor Spitfires) — now has 15 goals, 15 assists, 30 points in 26 games since the Eagles acquired him via the Amarillo Bulls earlier this season.

For the season, Vanderburg has 17 goals, 16 assists, 33 points in 30 games.
