Mark September 6th and 8th on the calendar. Those are the dates the Express will begin their 13th BCHL season at the second annual BCHL showcase to be played in Chilliwack.

The season will begin on Friday September 6th vs. the Merritt Centennials at 4pm in the Main rink. Ironically the Express opened the season last year at the same time in the same rink vs. the Victoria Grizzlies. A 1-0 OT Express win. 

Their second game will also be played in the Main rink on Sunday September 8th vs. the Alberni Valley Bulldogs at 11am.
