The Express signed two 1992-born players from their recent prospect camp last weekend at the Burnaby Winter Club.
Defenceman Stefan Gonzales and forward Alex Petan inked their way to the B.C. Junior Hockey League club's main camp in August with eye-catching performances in front of the Express coaching staff.
"Both players are exciting to us," said McLellan.
Gonzales is a 6-1, 180-pound defenceman, who played last season with the Valley West Hawks in the B.C. major midget hockey league.
The Surrey blueliner scored six goals and added 14 assists, while taking 46 minutes in penalties last season.
Petan, a 5-8, 147-pound forward, led the Okanagan Hockey Academy major midget team in scoring last year.
"Petan, in my estimation, is a gem. He's a guy with a lot of special abilities," said McLellan. "I knew after his first shift, he's a pretty dynamic kid."
