Express Here As X-Season Opens

Fans will have their first look at the Chilliwack Chiefs Saturday night at Prospera Centre as the exhibition season kicks off.

All tickets for the game tonight are just five bucks at the door, as the Coquitlam Express are in town. It’s the first time the Express uniform will be seen in Chilliwack, as they did not make the trip out to the Fraser Valley last season.

The two teams did meet once last regular season, a wild 6-6 tie in Coquitlam that saw Mathieu Tibbet score a hat-trick. Tibbet should be in the lineup tonight, along with a few other familiar faces.

As for the Express, a team that’s going to be a threat in the Coastal Conference’s Mainland division, there will be quite a few rookies on the ice this evening, but a few returning vets all the same. Names like Brady Shaw, Braden Pears, Justin Georgeson, and John Siemer are expected to go.

Tonight’s game is one of two exhibition contests at Prospera Centre. The Chiefs will head out on to the road for the next three. A rematch between these two teams goes August 28th at the Burnaby Winter Club.

Jacob Bestobroer in the Chiefs’ office has done some solid legwork to post tonight’s lineups, and a little background information on some of the new guys. You can find that by clicking here.

Again, just to be clear, we won’t be broadcasting the pre-season games on 89.5 The Hawk. Your best bet is to come out to the rink tonight, and welcome the fellas back to town.
