The visitors really limited the chances the Express were able to generate with the game on the line.

The Chiefs put the Express in an early hole within the first five minutes of the game.

Kaden Pickering snapped a shot that trickled through Clay Stevenson for a power play goal at 3:08.

That goal was followed 1:35 later by a goal from Anthony Vincent who converted a set up by Skylar Brind'Amour off the rush for a 2-0 Chiefs lead. The goal for Vincent was the start of a great night for the Chiefs forward.

Colby Pederson found himself on a breakaway moments later but couldn't get a shot away. Then Josh Bruce was set up in the slot, but was unable to get off his best shot.

Jordan Schulting got the Express on t
he board when his point shot beat Mathieu Caron low along the ice moments after a power play expired.

A major reason Chilliwack was able to get out of the first period lead was Anthony Vincent who had three shot blocks in the first period alone. His most notable one come in the final moments of the first period when he took an Express shot off the face.

Shots were few and far between for both teams in the second period. Clay Stevenson made his best save of the night on a rebound chance for Kaden Pickering.

Colby Pederson evened things up for the Express roofing a backhand for a shorthanded goal. It was Pederson's 3rd goal in two games after striking twice Friday night in Merritt.

Chilliwack started the third period with purpose. They were controlling the puck and playing with speed in the Express zone. It didn't take long for them to get rewarded. Jake Gresh snapped a wrist shot up over the shoulder of Stevenson for a 3-2 Chiefs lead at 1:11.

That shift and goal really set the tone for Chilliwack for the final 18:49 of the game. They spent the majority of the period controlling the puck in the Express zone and along the boards. It wasn't pretty, but effective at killing the clock.

The Express chance to get the equalizer came 7 minutes into the period when Corey Andonovski was assessed a double minor for high sticking. The Express were only able to muster one shot in the four minute power play. They finished 0 for 6 on the power play.

On a number of occasions Chilliwack was able to pin the puck along the boards and just kill the clock. There was one scrum that allowed 20+ seconds to run off the clock. Then in the final minute of the 3rd period the final 40 seconds was mostly tied up in a scrum to the right of the Chilliwack net which was allowed to run for so long, the clock ticked down to 0:00 to seal the win for the Chiefs.

The final shots in the third period finished 14-2 in favour of the Chiefs. Over the course of 60 minutes, the Chiefs outshot the Express 29-12.

The Express are back in action Wednesday night when they host Merritt.

Alex Amborsio (#10) Commits to Lake Superior State.

Coquitlam Express captain Alex Ambrosio has committed to Lake Superior State.

The commitment is effective immediately.

The 20 year old Burnaby native was in his third and final season in an Express uniform. Prior to the start of the season he was named captain for 2017-18.

This season he had 9 goals and 16 assists for 25 points in 33 games. Those numbers were second highest on the Express as of the Christmas break. His 16 assists matches his career high in that category that he accumulated last year in 50 games. Ambrosio was also well on his way to surpass the 29 points he tallied in 2016-17.

In 134 career BCHL games, all with the Express he had 30 goals and 42 assists for 72 points. He also had 1 assist in 4 playoff games in 2016.

During his time in an Express uniform, Amboriso left an indelible mark on and off the ice as a first class individual. That is the mark he will leave behind as he moves on to the next stage of his hockey career.

Lake Superior State plays in the WCHA conference. Previous Express alumni to commit to Lake Superior State include goaltender Gordy Defiel. And former captain Mitch Nardi.

The Express would like to congratulate Alex
on this opportunity. And thank you for everything you have given to this organization. The BCHL is about moving players on to the next level, this is a well deserved next step.

The Express wore their Comets uniforms in their annual tribute to the junior team that played from the 60's into the early 80's in Coquitlam.

Comets manager Sandy Michie would have been very proud how today's modern day Coquitlam team played for 63 plus minutes. They were solid in their own zone, the penalty killing was strong and were full value for the victory.

The Comets started the game by peppering the Powell River goal with pucks. They forced Kings goaltender Matteo Paler-Chow to be on his game early on. His best save off the first period came on a rebound chance for Christian Sanda.

Eventually the Comets broke through. Eric Linell started the play by navigating his way out of his own zone. Then when he entered the Kings zone he fed the puck back to Lucas Wong who let a point shot go that was tipped home by captain Alex Ambrosio.

The second period belonged to the Comets penalty killers. They were whistled for three separate infractions in just under six minutes. When the Kings were able to generate chances they had to face a dialed in Brock Hamm.

Entering the third period the Kings had all five of the game's powerplays. The Comets finally got their first in the opening moments of the third period.

Jason Fortier tweaked his defenseman tonight. He played Jordan Schulting at centre with Jonathan Sheardown and Tyler Chyzowski who dressed for his second straight outing as an AP. That line consisting of two natural defensemen as forwards certainly didn't look out of place.

Four minutes into the third the Comets lost the services of Landon Fuller who got cut diving back to break up a play at his own blueline. To make matters worse, Fuller was called for tripping and didn't return to the game.

The remaining Express blue liners all stepped up in his absence the rest of the way. They weathered two more Kings powerplays in the final 6 minutes of the game.  The Comets finished the game with a perfect 8 for 8 night on the penalty kill.

Powell River was finally able to get a puck past a very stingy Brock Hamm. They needed a crafty deflection by Hunter Findlater of a Carmine Buono point shot with 1:07 remaining in the third period to break Hamm's shutout bid and tie the game at 1.

This was a very entertaining game for 60 minutes. The teams each had 22 shots through three periods.

Powell River had a decent start to overtime with puck control and giving the Comets trouble coming out of their zone.

Once the Comets broke free Troy Robillard rushed into the Kings zone, then found a lane to the net and took full advantage of it and Eric Linell buried the rebound giving the Comets a 2-1 win heading into the Christmas break. For Linell it was his second overtime winner in just over a week.

Now the Express are off on their Christmas break until December 29th when they will travel up to Merritt. They will return home the next night vs. Chilliwack.

An unfortunate bounce for the Express ended up being the difference allowing Prince George to defeat the Express 3-1 Friday night. Click here for boxscore

Dylan Anhorn was credited with the game winning goal.

For most of the night neither team was willing to give the other much ice to create chances.

Corey Cunningham opened the scoring for the Spruce Kings when Jay Karanen's point shot bounced to Cunningham in the slot who beat Brock Hamm at 3:50.

The Express had chances moments later to equalize. Sam Kozlowski was stopped on a breakaway, Eric Linell was stopped on a 2-1 by Evan DeBrouwer among the first period chances.

A Prince George turnover allowed the Express to pull even. Eric Linell converted a giveaway scoring his 17th of the season at 7:57 to tie the game at one.

The game stayed tied until the third period when the Spruce Kings caught a lucky break while shorthanded. Dylan Anhorn cleared the puck from his own zone and it went into a vacated net by Brock Hamm who went out of his net to play the puck. The Express argued the puck had hit a player on the Express bench and the goal should have been disallowed. There was minimal discussion by the officials that allowed the goal to stand.

It took the Express some time to recover from the tough break. But once they did, they continued to generate chances.

Josh Bruce had back to back chances in the final minutes. Including a good look from the slot.

In the final three minutes the Express had a late power play, but they still weren't able to get the equalizer. They finished the night 0 for 4 on the power play.

The effort was there for the Express, despite what the boxscore shows. They were a tough break on the game winning goal from this game at least going to overtime.

Ben Brar then finished off the scoring by hitting the empty net with 4 seconds to play.

The Express will play their final game before Christmas Saturday night when they host Powell River. It will be the annual game where the Express will honour Coquitlam Comets, a junior team from a previous generation.

Highlights from the Express 3-1 win in Langley Saturday night.

Highlights produced by Eddie Gregory. 

Sunday, December 10, 2017


The Express joined the Wenatchee Wild as the only teams in the BCHL to defeat the Langley Rivermen on home ice in regulation by a score of 3-1 Saturday night. Click here for boxscore

It was the second straight road win for the Express and their third win overall in their last four games.

During this run for the Express, they've been at their best creating chances offensively, and getting out of the zone quick in their own end. They were able to do that on Saturday night. Plus the Express did a good job of blocking shots particularly in the middle part of the ice in their zone.

Josh Bruce forced a turnover at the Express blueline and walked in on a breakaway snapping a shot over the shoulder of Rivermen goaltender Braedon Fleming.

In their own end the Express showed good poise with the puck not rushing plays and getting it out of their end.

Early in the second period Eric Linell came close to adding to the Express lead beating Fleming with a wrist shot that hit the post.

12 minutes into the second period Landon Fuller got involved in a scuffle behind the Express net. The blue liner came up swinging on Ethan Leyh. Fuller was given a double minor for roughing and a game misconduct. So the Express had to play the rest of the game without their most physically imposing defenseman.

Dominic Davis dressed for a second game for the Express as an AP. He didn't look out of place throughout the night. He was even rewarded with some time on the penalty kill on Fuller's double minor.

Langley did pull even on that power play when Colin Bernard hammered a one timer from the point over the shoulder of Brock Hamm.

In the third Langley did start to ramp up their pressure looking for their first lead. But the Express stood tall against the Rivermen attack. And they had a sharp Brock Hamm behind them backing the team up.

His best save came early in the third off a re-direct by Ethan Leyh. Hamm also got some help when Trevor St. Jean hit the post midway through the period. He finished with 32 saves earning first star honors and is now 2-0-1 in his last 3 games.

With no Fuller to finish the game, the rest of the blue liners were tasked with additional minutes. They rose to the occasion. Doug Scott had a strong night on the backend. If he got paid, he would have earned his money. He had a number of shot blocks that clearly stung the Express blue liner who gritted it out.

The tie was broken by the Express who rushed into the Langley zone. Linell fed it across to Josh Wildauer, his shot went wide, but he stayed in pursuit the puck and set up captain Alex Ambrosio who snapped home the pass from the slot.

Langley's last gasp came moments later. Josh Bruce was called for a check to the head penalty less than a minute after Ambrosio's goal. With the game on the line, the Express shut down the struggling Rivermen power play.  Langley finished 1 for 4 on the power play. The Express were 0 for 2.

Colby Pederson battled hard all night long for the Express. He was battling for pucks, blocking shots and just played with a high compete level. He was rewarded for his play breaking away from his own blueline and rushing the puck up the ice and scoring into the empty net to seal the win.

It was the third win for the Express this season vs. Langley. Their first win on the road in the season series.

The Express have two games next weekend at home before their Christmas break Friday and Saturday vs. Prince George and Powell River.

Chilliwack scored four unanswered goals en route to a 4-2 win over the Express Friday night in Coquitlam. Click here for boxscore

In the process the Express had their two game winning streak come to an end.

It was second meeting in a week between the two teams. The Chiefs were victorious by a 2-1 score in Chilliwack last Friday.

Both teams came out skating in the first period. But neither team was able to generate many shots.

Josh Wildauer opened the scoring for the Express moments after a early 2nd period power play expired.

Troy Robillard fired a wrist shot from the right point that was deflected by Wildauer in the slot for his 5th of the season at 5:42.

52 seconds later the Chiefs pulled even. Ryan Miotto snapped a shot from the slot under the arm of Clay Stevenson to even the score at one.

That goal tilted the game in Chilliwack's favour. They did a decent job working the puck along the boards in the Express zone and trying to control the play.

Chilliwack captain Will Calverley returned to the Chiefs lineup after missing the previous three games with an injury. He gave the Chiefs the lead on the power play swiping home a loose puck that bounced his way off a Marcus Tesink point shot.

Regan Kimens scored Chilliwack's third goal of the period late in the frame firing a shot past the glove of Clay Stevenson after the Express failed to get the puck out of their zone for a 3-1 Chiefs lead after 2 periods.

Midway through the third period Ryan Miotto essentially sealed the win for Chilliwack by putting the puck into an empty net after Clay Stevenson coughed up the puck to Will Caverley who set up Miotto who scored his second of the night.

Doug Scott rounded out the scoring for the Express jamming home a loose puck in the crease in the final minute after a good play by Johnathan Sheardown on a wrap around. AP Dominic Davis who dressed in his 4th game with the Express picked up his first BCHL point with an assist on the play.

The Express outshot Chilliwack 28-24. But unlike last Friday in Chilliwack,

the Express weren't able to generate as many quality chances on this night.

The power play finished 0 for 6 for the Express. Most of the night with the man advantage they had trouble setting up in the offensive zone. That was due in part to Chilliwack penalty killing pressure all over the ice. On the other side the Chiefs were 1 for 4 on the man advantage.

Saturday night the Express will visit the Langley Rivermen.

Highlights from Wednesday's 3-2 OT win for the Express in Vernon.


Eric Linell took the first step to repeat as BCHL player of the week scoring the overtime winner as the Express defeated the BCHL's top team the Vernon Vipers 3-2 in overtime. Click here for boxscore

The win was the first road win for the Express in their 17th away game, and they posted consecutive victories for the first time this season. They're now 2-1-1 under Head Coach Jason Fortier.

The visitors looked a little sloppy in the opening minutes of the game. Then they settled into the game starting to generate their own chances.

Sam Kozlowski opened the scoring for the firing a wrist shot that deflected off the stick of a Vipers defenseman and past Anthony Yamnitski. That goal would be the first of a constant theme of the night of some slightly unconventional goals for both teams.

Injuries to the Express have seen them dress a few AP's in recent games. Nick Amsler dressed for his second straight game. Brayden Szabados meanwhile made his BCHL debut. They mostly played on a line with Jonathan Sheardown. When they were out there they gave the Express some valuable minutes.

Kozlowski struck again for the Express late in the second period. Again he caught a break. After taking a pass from John Sheardown, Kozlowski's shot from the slot bounced in off the stick of Vipers goaltender Yamnitski.

The lead for the Express held into the third period where things really got wild.

For the first 13 minutes of the period the Express were doing everything right to protect their lead. Then at 12:50 Vernon's Keyvan Mokhtari was called for cross checking. It was a great opportunity for the Express to put the game away.

Off the ensuing offensive zone draw the puck split the Express defense. That allowed Jesse Lansdell to pounce on the puck for a breakaway. He was given a slight hook then was awarded a penalty shot.

On the penalty shot Lansdell slid a backhand through the pads of Brock Hamm to get Vernon on the board with 7 minutes to go.

At the time the Express still had 1:50 of power play time remaining to at least re-store their two goal lead.

The Lansdell goal rattled the Express who never really set up on the power play. Then the puck was fired into the Express zone and Hamm was forced to race out of his net to clear the puck away from the oncoming Lansdell. The Vernon forward knocked down the clearing attempt and scored his second shorthanded goal of the night 1:20 after his penalty shot goal to tie the game at 2.

That goal capped off a period for Lansdell that saw him get shaken up earlier in the period on a pair of shot blocks.

At this time for an Express team that is still learning how to close out wins, let alone do it on the road against the league's top team this was their test.

In the final minute of the third period Josh Bruce was called for a check to the head penalty and was essentially done for the night with the minor penalty plus the automatic 10 minute misconduct.

The Express survived the final 15 seconds of regulation shorthanded. And the overtime intermission was a great time for the team to reset after blowing a two goal lead in dramatic fashion.

With 1:45 of power play time to open overtime at 4 on 3, the Vipers had no reason to rush to set up the perfect play to get the winner.

Vernon's patience may have actually played into the hands of the Express. Vernon worked the puck around, looking for the perfect chance and eventually the Express killed off the penalty.

Throughout the night Eric Linell just seemed to have the puck find his stick to create chances. They weren't going in for him in regulation. The puck found Linell's stick again in overtime. This time the BCHL's player of the week got a bounce only red hot players get as his shot went off the stick of a Vipers defenseman and past Yamnitsky giving the Express the 3-2 OT win.

For Linell it was his 7th goal in his last 5 games.

Brock Hamm turned aside 30 of the 32 shots sent his way to post his second consecutive win in the Express crease.

The Express return to action on Friday when they host the Chilliwack Chiefs. Then they will travel to Langley on Saturday night.

Highlights from the Express 6-2 win over Victoria Sunday. 


Jason Fortier has his first win as the Head Coach of the Coquitlam Express. It came in his third game behind the bench by a 6-2 score over the Victoria Grizzlies Sunday. Click here for boxscore

The win for the Express snapped their 15 game winless streak (0-14-1-0).

The Express were facing a road weary Victoria team that had played in Prince George and Vernon the previous two nights.

Early on it didn't look like Victoria was playing their third game of the weekend. They appeared to have opened the scoring off a won face-off in the Express zone in the opening minute. But upon further review by the officials it was deemed the deflection of the shot was contacted with a high stick.

Victoria didn't allow the no goal call to dissuade them. T.J. Friedman opened the scoring just shy of the 4 minute mark.

The red hot Eric Linell evened things up for the Express in the final minute of the first period scoring from the slot on a set up from captain Alex Ambrosio. The goal set off a frenzy of stuffed animals on the annual teddy bear toss night for the Express.

Justin Michealian tipped a pass home at the lip of the goal crease at 3:12 of the second period giving the Grizzlies their second lead of the night. That would be the final puck to get past goaltender Brock Hamm who shut the door the rest of the way to finish with 35 saves to post his first victory in the Express crease.

Just over two minutes after the Grizzlies goal, Linell struck again converting a set up in the blue paint from Jordan Schulting to tie the game at 2. The goal for Linell was his 15th of the season. By that point he had scored the last 5 Express goals dating back to Wednesday vs. Langley.

Christian Sanda, who appears to be a little rejuvenated lately gave the Express their first lead banging home a rebound to give the Express a 3-2 lead they would carry into the third period.

Jordan Schulting gave the Express some insurance early in the third jumping into the play and found a loose puck in the Victoria crease for his third of the season.

Sunday was a career day for Express captain Alex Ambrosio. He had a four point game with one goal and three assists. He capped off his memorable afternoon with a strong defensive play then rushing the puck up the ice and outwaited Victoria goaltender Bryce Schiebel and slid the puck home for a 5-2 Express lead.

Colby Pederson rounded out the scoring for the Express hitting the empty net with 1;53 to play. The 6 Express goals was a new single game high.

They're now 1-1-1-0 for three points since the coaching change. In that time they've only allowed 7 goals for an average of less than 3 per night in the short period of time.

The Express will seek their first road win of the season Wednesday when they travel to Vernon.

Chilliwack scored twice in the third period for a come from behind 2-1 win over the Express Friday in Chilliwack. Click here for boxscore

The Express come away from Friday's game looking back on the number of chances they couldn't bury.

The chances for the Express started to come in the first period. Josh Bruce had a chance in the opening minutes. Then Sam Kozlowski had a pass go behind him on a 2 on 1 break.

It was a penalty filled game with the teams combining for 15 total powerplays.

Chilliwack had four advantages alone in the first period. That included a two man advantage for 1:22 after Johnathan Sheardown was called for a check from behind for a hit on Anthony Vincent. Sheardown was also given a game misconduct.

The Express limited the dangerous chances on the two man disadvantage as the Chiefs were patient moving the puck around. Things got more frantic in when the play went to 5 on 4 for the Chiefs. Chilliwack's best chance was Corey Andonovski ringing a shot off the post. Then Clay Stevenson stopping Kaden Pickering who tried to jam the puck in from the goal crease.

Chilliwack was penalized for back to back penalties in the first, but the Express couldn't strike.

The best chance for the Express came late in the period as Jordan Schulting got the puck at centre ice coming out of the penalty box and had a breakaway, but his shot hit the cross bar and went out of play.

In the second period Eric Linell was stopped on a breakaway by Mathieu Caron.

At the other end Clay Stevenson got some puck luck as Jake Gresh had his point shot hit the post and stay out. It was the same story moments later for Jared Turcotte.

Midway through the period Stevenson made the save of the night coming across to his left to rob Anthony Vincent who then crashed into the Express goaltender following the save.

Finally 17 minutes into the second period the deadlock was broken. Off a won face-off in the Chilliwack zone Haydn Delorme fired it back to Landon Fuller whose point shot was tipped by Eric Linell to open the scoring. For Linell it was his third goal in the last two games.

Chilliwack entered the third period with a power play with Fuller in the box for interference. That was followed early in the third by a interference penalty from Josh Wildauer.

Sensing the urgency of the situation with the Chiefs getting their second two man advantage of the game this time for 40 seconds Jason Tatarnic called his time out.

It only took the Chiefs 8 seconds to execute their plan and tie the game. Off the won face-off the Chiefs worked it down to the goal line to Tommy Lee who zipped a back door pass to Corey Andonovski who tied the game at 1. Chilliwack finished 1 for 8 on the power play.

Minutes later Anthony Vincent was called for roughing giving the Express another power play.

On that advantage came more great Express chances. First Alex Ambrosio ripped a one timer over the net. Then Linell was set up on a tip play and put it over the net with a half open cage.

As the third period progressed the Express had struggles coming out of their zone that led to turnovers.

One of those turnovers proved costly. Adan Berg stole the puck then dropped it back to Matt Slick who finally got some puck luck to go the Chiefs way as his shot hit the post then bounced off Stevenson and bounced in giving Chilliwack a 2-1 lead.

As the final minutes of the game ticked down the chances kept coming for the Express. Christian Sanda was stopped with a clean look from the slot. Then off the ensuing draw Colby Pederson was stopped on a backhand by Caron.

Then in the final minutes the Express had a two man advantage but wasn't able to get the equalizer. The Express finished 0 for 7 on the power play.

The shots finished 29-23 in favour of Chilliwack.

Friday was card cut down day where teams have their number of cards to add players to their roster reduced to 25 of they have that many left.

As a result the Express made a number of transactions. 20 year old blue liner Jake Brien was traded to the Pembroke Lumberkings of the CCHL for future considerations. And forward Aiden Wagner was released.

Brien dressed for 125 games in an Express uniform over parts of three seasons. He was a real warrior for the Express and deserves to be commended for how hard he played during his time with the club. He would be the first player to go down and block a shot for a teammate. On top of that he was a first class player off the ice.

Wagner only dressed for 23 games with the Express. But he certainly left a mark for being a hard working player on the ice. Off of it he has a very outgoing personality who treats everyone with the utmost respect.

Thanks to both Jake and Aiden for their contributions to the Express.
