The Surrey Eagles’ season is only four games old, but goaltender Vic Adamo has already absorbed more rubber than a wayward raccoon on King George Boulevard at rush hour.
In three starts this season, Adamo has never faced less than 40 shots a game guarding the Eagles’ net.
Adamo posted a shutout of West Kelowna at the BCHL showcase a week ago and kept the momentum going last weekend when he backstopped Surrey to a 5-4 overtime win Friday over Langley before falling 5-2 to Coquitlam Sunday at South Surrey Arena.
Against Coquitlam, Adamo held the Eagles in the game despite being outshot 40-25.
The Eagles trailed 3-2 with two minutes to play when Corey Mackie beat Adamo on a breakaway to seal Surrey’s fate.
Nicolas Pierog and Brett Mulcahy provided the Surrey goals.
The Eagles staged their home opener Friday and sent their fans home happy when Jonah Renouf scored 3:08 into overtime to lift Surrey past the Rivermen.
Pierog, Mulcahy, Danton Heinen and Colton Mackie also scored for Surrey in the win.
