The Coquitlam Express have acquired forward Regan Kimens (99) from the Bonnyville Pontiacs of the AJHL.
The Vaughan, Ontario native split last season with the Langley Rivermen and Chilliwack Chiefs. The majority of his time was spent in Chilliwack. Regan played 6 games in Langley, then was acquired by the Chiefs in a trade. In 54 games in the 2017-18 season he had 10 goals and 9 assists for 19 points. He tallied all those numbers in 48 games with the Chiefs. On October 20th, he scored a hat-trick scoring all three goals shorthanded in a 6-1 win over Salmon Arm. In the playoffs Kimens had 1 assist in 5 games.
Following the season, Kimens was included as future considerations to complete a trade between the Chiefs and Pontiacs during the 2017-18 campaign.
Regan is listed at 6’1, 190 pounds. He’s entering his second full season in the BCHL. Coming into the season he’s looking forward to being a part of what GM and Head Coach Jason Fortier is building. “I was really happy when Jason picked me up. He came in and turned the program around. And it’s looking like a good team next year.” says Kimens.
The Express can expect a forward that can contribute in all three zones. “I can play a 200 foot game. I like to play physical too. I love working below the goal line, that’s my office, I’m hoping to create a lot of offence this year.” says Kimens.
“Regan is a player who brings energy each night. He has the speed and skill to be an impact player and we are hopeful he can have a breakout year. He will quickly be a fan favorite and we are excited to have him.” says Express GM and Head Coach Jason Fortier.
Prior to the BCHL, Kimens spent two seasons at St. Andrews College.
