Turris & Express Lose in Seven Games

Kyle Turris and the Burnaby Express were eliminated from the BCHL Playoffs last night in game seven of the BCHL Semi-Finals by a score of 5 to 4, compliments of Nanaimo. I had the chance to listen to the first half of this game and Nanaimo outplayed Burnaby badly, as has been the case in the entire series. That the Express were even able to make it close is a surprise to me. UW recruit Kyle Turris had a goal in the game and finishes the BCHL Playoffs leading in scoring with 12 goals and 14 assists for 26 points in 14 games.

Turris is expected to be named to Canada's U18 IIHF World Championship roster. The U18 World Championship is being held in Finland and begins April 11th.
