Chilliwack Has It’s Own Espo

Of the new faces in training camp for the Chilliwack Chiefs, one who has generated some buzz early on is Luke Esposito.

The Chiefs have been no stranger to players with strong hockey bloodlines, and Espo certainly fits that description. The ’93 born forward is the nephew of Mark Messier, and the grandson of Doug Messier.

It was Doug Messier who coached the St. Albert Saints of the AJHL in the early 80’s. One of the players Messier sent over the boards in his time there, was none other than the man who convinced his grandson to play in the ‘Wack –  Harvey Smyl.

Needless to say, there’s connections all over the place.

Getting back to Esposito, this will be his first season at the Junior A level after putting up 47 points in 29 games with Brunswick Prep in Greenwich, Conn. A trip to the New York Rangers rookie camp earlier this summer soon followed, and now he finds himself playing on a line with fellow new additon Austin Plevy in Chiefs camp.

The two looked very impressive on Tuesday night, generating numerous scoring chances, and finishing on a few as well. Esposito granted me a few minutes afterwards to talk about his new environment.
