Forward Erik Udahl (96) has committed to Boston University. His commitment takes place immediately and he has moved on to BU to begin his NCAA career. The Terriers play in the Hockey East Conference.

The move allows the Warpole Massachusetts native to play his college hockey in his hometown.

Udahl had seven goals and four assists for eleven points in 33 games with the Express this season. Last season he had nine goals and ten assists for 19 points in 48 games with the Langley Rivermen.

In 81 career BCHL games over parts of the last two seasons with the Express and Rivermen, Udahl had 16 goals and 14 assists for 30 points.

"We're extremely proud of Erik, his work ethic and desire to improve his game are two big reasons he's getting this opportunity. It's a tough time to lose a player to the next level, but this is why we're in junior hockey to help move players to the next level. This is a great opportunity for Erik to go to a great program and school close to home." - Express GM and Head Coach Barry Wolff.

"I would like to thank Head Coach Barry Wolff and the Coqutilam Express for a great first half of the season. I'm sad to be leaving, but playing for Boston U is my dream school and I'm very excited to face every challenge thrown at me. I wish the Express the best of luck for the rest of the season and I will miss everyone in the organization very deeply." - Erik Udahl.

The Express would like to thank Erik for his contributions to the team and best of luck at BU.
