BCHL 50 in Coq.
Coquitlam Express will be front and centre Friday as part of the B.C. Hockey League’s 50th anniversary celebration.
The Jr. ‘A’ Express will host the Langley Rivermen in the first game of a home-and-home series, with all 16 BCHL teams taking part in their home venues.
The contest goes at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex, 7 p.m.
KidSport, the charity for needy sport-playing youth selected by the league as the primary beneficiary, will receive proceeds from various auctions and raffles being held at the various rinks.
“Our team marketers and sales people have really embraced this challenge and come up with some great ideas to promote their teams and the history of their franchises and the league,” said BCHL communications director Brent Mutis.
“I’m impressed with the initiative shown by our teams and hope fans get on board with the festivities, too.”
