The Defending BCHL Champion Coquitlam Express will open the 2014/15 Regular Season with a new look.
On Sept. 14, players and coaches made a public appearance at an Express barbecue unveiling new colours, logo and and a new jersey.
The new colours will align the Express with the colours of the Coquitlam Minor Hockey Association and the team will wear a CMHA patch on both their home and away jerseys.
Head Coach / General Manager Barry Wollf says the change was made to show support and build a solid working relationship with the CMHA.
"We want the players of Coquitlam Minor and the Tri-Cities area to feel like the Express is OUR team," Wolff said.
The Express begin the regular season at the Bauer BCHL Showcase this Friday, Sept. 19 with a 7 p.m. game against the West Kelowna Warriors.
The team's home opener will be Sept. 26 at 7 p.m. with Mainland Division rival the Prince George Spruce Kings in town. That evening will feature the raising of the 2014 Fred Page Cup championship banner.
