A pair of Langley hockey products have helped the Surrey Eagles qualify for the RBC Cup

A pair of BCHL rookies from Langley are going to the national championships.

Defenceman Jordan Klimek and forward Kevin Kilistoff — who both played for the Langley Minor Hockey Association — have helped the Surrey Eagles qualify for the RBC Cup.

The RBC Cup, Canada’s junior A hockey national championship, will be played May 11 to 19 in Summerside, PEI.

The Eagles qualified for the tournament after winning the Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup over the weekend in Nanaimo.

In the finals, Klimek scored the opening goal in a 4-1 victory over the Brooks Bandits.

Klimek had six assists during the Eagles’ playoff run, while Kilistoff has scored twice and set up one other. Both have played all 17 of the team’s games in the BCHL Fred Page Cup playoffs.

Klimek, who is committed to Northern Michigan for the 2014/15 season, had six goals and 23 points during the regular season. He turns 18 in August.

Kilistoff, 18,  had seven goals and 10 assists.
