Jacob Santerre and the Cape Breton Eagles didn’t get the results they had hoped for in the opening game of the Memorial eCup last weekend.
Santerre and the Eagles were defeated 4-2 by Luka Burzan and the Brandon Wheat Kings in a back-and-forth contest.
With the loss, Cape Breton was eliminated from championship contention.
The 18-year-old Santerre represented the Eagles in the 64-team eSports tournament featuring all 60 Canadian Hockey League teams across Canada and the United States.
Former Cape Breton West Islander Jacob Stewart and the Moncton Wildcats will also take part in the tournament. He’ll play Sportnet’s Sam Cosentino on Saturday at 3:10 p.m. Atlantic time.
All Memorial eCup games are streamed via Facebook Live and Twitch. Fans are also invited to follow along at chl.ca/MemorialeCup.
The winner of the Memorial eCup will have a $1,000 donation made in their name to a charity of choice.
