Player to watch:
Spruce Kings:
Corey Hoffman – FWD: He may have gotten off to a slow start in November, not picking up a point in the first seven games, but then got on the board with four assists in the final five games. He is the leading scorer for forwards with 21 points in 30 points.
Kyle Johnson - FWD: The leading rookie scorer for the Spruce Kings has two assists this season against the Express. In 15 points this season after 30 games the Port Moody native has an eight point lead over Connor Logan who has seven points this season.

Jackson Cressey- FWD: A member of the afore mentioned “Big Three” line, Cressey picked up a hat-trick in the last meeting including the game winning goal in the third period. Cressey leads the team in points per game, averaging 1.4.
Erik Udahl -FWD: He’s the second smallest player on the Coquitlam roster, but Udahl is likely one of the fastest if not the quickest. In the last game against PG, he had a highlight goal he would love to repeat.
