Express To Honour Coquitlam Comets

Press Release

The Coquitlam Express Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club is proud to announce that their November 22nd game against the Penticton Vees will be dedicated to local hockey builder, Mr. Sandy Michie, and the original Coquitlam Junior Hockey franchise, the Comets.

Mr. Sandy Michie was the long-time Owner and General Manager of the Comets, who were members of the Pacific Coast Junior Hockey League from 1974-1979. In 1979, the Pacific Coast League merged with the British Columbia Hockey League, where the Comets also competed until 1981.

The Express will show homage for Comets Alumni players, volunteers and Mr. Michie by donning replica Comets jerseys circa 1975. It will be a special Fan Festival Friday as fans will be able to mingle with Comets Alumni, in addition to a free pre-game BBQ and other activities kicking off at 5:30pm, courtesy of PriceSmart Foods – Pinetree Village. The Express are also offering $3 off an adult, senior (60+) or student ticket purchased at the ticket booth if you wear a hockey jersey to this game.
