EXPRESS ACQUIRE MAHOVLICH
The Express added to their defence prior to Saturday's game vs. Penticton by picking up veteran defenceman Johnny Mahovlich from the Surrey Eagles in exchange for future considerations.
This season, Mahovlich got into only 4 games and didn't register a point with the Eagles after being acquired from the Merritt Centennials.
He has 3 goals and 20 career points in 110 BCHL games.
The 19 year old is listed at 6'2 205 lbs.
By acquiring Mahovlich, the Express now have 8 defencemen listed on their roster.
I find it a little interesting. I don't expect to see 8 d-men being carried the rest of the way.
Now, that the Express have depth on the backend, could a trade be on its way to try address other areas of the hockey club? Stay tuned.
