The Express have stepped on the ice in Coquitlam for the first time since 2005 when training camp opened on Monday in preparation for their 10th BCHL season.
This marks the first day for new head coach Jon Calvano to see the fruits of his labour hit the ice.
He is the man responsible for rebuilding a program that has missed the playoffs in each of its final 2 seasons in Burnaby posting 18 wins in each of the previous 2 campaigns.
There are plenty of new faces to get to know all throughout the roster.
I caught up with the new bench boss to discuss his plan of attack for the coming season and some of the players he has brought in.

Training camp goes daily at the Coquitlam Sports Centre. The first pre-season game is this Saturday in Gibsons vs. the Powell River Kings. The next day the Express will play host to the Surrey Eagles at the Coquitlam Sports Centre on Sunday afternoon.
