EXPRESS RETURNING TO COQUITLAM
The return of the Express to Coquitlam for the 10-11 season is now finalized.
The City of Coquitlam and the Express have cleared the final hurdle and have reached a 3 year lease agreement for use of the renovated Coquitlam Sports Centre.
The deal was struck Monday night at a City of Coquitlam Council meeting.
Getting a lease agreement done was the last obstacle making the relocation of the Express official.
On December 1st, the Express officially filed their application to re-locate the club back to Coquitlam with the BCHL. Then back in the middle of January, the BCHL Board of Governors unanimously approved the Express application for re-location.
The Express originally played in Coquitlam for their first four seasons in the BCHL from 2001-2005. Then re-located to Burnaby for the 05-06 season.
