SFU Hockey is proud to announce the third commitment of the 2017/18 season, Eric Callegari. He joins SFU after a stellar season where he won a PJHL championship with the Aldergrove Kodiaks. He also led the league in scoring and picked up PJHL MVP honours. If the last name sounds familiar, Eric will be joining brother Adam who is going into his Senior year with the Clan­.

He’s a tremendous talent, with an edge to his game” is how SFU Head Coach Mark Coletta describes Callegari, who averaged over 1.3 points per game over three seasons with the Kodiaks, capped off with 73(26g-47a) points in 41 games this past season. “I believe Eric has the skills and attributes to be an all-star in the BCIHL” added Coletta. Callegari describes himself as an “intense player who doesn’t shy away from playing a physical game.”

Callegari’s coach during his time with the Kodiaks, Darrin Vetterl spoke highly of the player that SFU will be getting this year. “He really comes to play every night, and plays like he’s bigger than he is.” He added “we were able to play him in any situation, with his skill he’s able to control a game.” Callegari himself has set a goal for himself to be the best rookie in the BCIHL for the coming season.

Eric joins an SFU team that led the BCIHL in goals, and will bring yet another high end offensive threat to the forward group. He will also bring more grit to the line-up having collected 242 PIMS in his junior career.
