The games on the ice may be done for the Coquitlam Express for the 11-12 season, but that doesn't mean that the works stops for a break in preparation for the 12-13 season.
The Coquitlam Express have landed a top recruit to start loading up for next season.
18 year old defenceman Callum Hofford has committed to join the Express next season.
He was a highly sought after defenceman by various BCHL clubs and the Express were able to bring him into the fold.
Speaking with Head Coach Jon Calvano today, he describes him as the top defenceman available and is the Alex Kerfoot of defenceman. He has the skill set that could help fill the void of graduating defenceman Clinton Atkinson.
Coach Calvano and Hofford do have a lenghty connection with Jon having known Callum since he was 10 years old.
Hofford comes to the Express with impressive credentials with a commitment to Northern Michigan University for the 13-14 season. He played for the Hill Academy Varsity team last season where he put up 21 goals and 65 points in 62 games.
There will be some comfort for Callum when he comes to Coquitlam for next season with numerous family members living in the Lower Mainland area.
Welcome to the Express Callum, we look forward to seeing you play next season.
