The Coquitlam Express have acquired forward Connor Gregga (00) from the Stratford Warriors
The Markham, Ontario native registered 15 goals and 45 points in 50 games last season with the
Warriors. In the playoffs, he added 6 goals and 2 assists for 8 points in 10 games including a hat-trick
in the series clinching game of a first round sweep over Brantford.
“I think Coquitlam will be getting next year a speedy forward who likes to play at both ends of the ice,
likes to have the puck on his stick, and a physical player.” says Gregga.
He models his game after Boston’s Brad Marchand with his ability to produce offence and be a thorn in
his opponent’s side.
“I like to talk to whoever I’m playing against try and get under their skin, but that
doesn’t distract me from what I like to do, and that is be a player maker and help my team offensively.”
Coming to the Express and the BCHL is a great opportunity for Gregga to pursue a NCAA opportunity
“The BCHL sends plenty of players to the NCAA, and that’s a goal of mine. And playing in Coquitlam
increases my chances of being committed.” says Gregga.
The Express open their season on September 7 th in Surrey. Their home opener is September 23 rd vs. the
Salmon Arm Silverbacks. Welcome to the Express Connor!
