Express Captain Alex Petan is the first player this season to get a post secondary commitment as he will be heading to Michigan Tech University for next season.
The third year forward has gotten off to a fantastic start to the season leading the team in scoring with 12 points in his first 7 games. This past weekend was a memorable one for Petan on the ice as he had his first BCHL hat-trick over the Langley Rivermen on Friday. Then on Sunday he scored a spectacular goal in the third period in the 4-3 win over the Powell River Kings.

Last season the Express secured post secondary commitments for 9 players which was among some of the higher totals of all the teams in the BCHL. This season shouldn't be any different.
