The BCHL's trading deadline came and went yesterday and the Coquitlam Express decided to stand pat and go with the roster that has seen them rattle off 7 straight wins and currently occupy a playoff spot.

That's not to say they weren't active prior to the deadline with the deals that sent Taylor Love to Salmon Arm and bringing in Nicholas Wong.

So the club will stick with it's current arrangement of 11 forwards, 7 defence and the two goaltenders.

There was a fair amount of activity around the BCHL at this years deadline. Here's a look at some of the deals that involved other Coastal Conference teams in the playoff race. The biggest mover has to be the Victoria Grizzlies who came out of the weekend sitting 10 points back of the Express for a playoff spot.

The Grizz shipped out Wade Murphy to Penticton, Jarryd Ten Vaanholt to Prince George. They also dealt Goaltender Jamie Tucker, forwards Mike Collins and Mike Moran to various other locations around Canada.

Powell River traded goaltender Jamie Phillips to the Toronto Jr. Canadians, plus they sent Brenden Forbes and Taylor Carmola to the Nanaimo Clippers for Teal Burns.

The Surrey Eagles didn't make any moves at this years deadline.
