EXPRESS MAKE BIG TRADE
The Coquitlam Express have added some experienced scoring depth in a trade involving the Olds Grizzlys of the AJHL.
The Express have sent 18 year old forward Mitchell Deacon to the Grizz in exchange for 20 year old forward Taylor Bourne.
In this trade the Express have picked up the Grizzlys top scorer both this season and last season. This season Bourne has 11 goals and 23 points in 22 games. Last season he had 28 goals and 60 points in 57 games.
Deacon struggled with injuries in his time with the Express. But he was productive in his time in the lineup scoring 7 goals in 27 games in his rookie season last year. This season he had shoulder surgery before the season and just made his return to the line up last Friday vs. Surrey. He didn't pick up a point in 2 games this season.
Good luck to Mitchell in Olds and welcome to Taylor.
