Brendan Lamont has parlayed his last and best BCHL season into a college hockey opportunity with Simon Fraser University.

The Langley, BC product put personal highs of 25 goals and 38 assists for 63 points while playing all 58 games for the Coquitlam Express in 2014-15.

Lamont wound up with 123 points in 230 career BCHL games and was a Fred Page Cup BCHL champion with the Express in 2014.

“Brendan is a highly skilled player, his 63 points last season show that, and we expect him to be an elite scorer in the league” said SFU Head Coach Mark Coletta.

Express play-by-play voice Eddie Gregory enjoyed describing the action Lamont brought to the ice.

“He was one of my favourite players to watch in the year and a half he was with the team,” said Gregory. “He’s a hard-working player who is more than willing to get his nose dirty.”

A 5-foot-9, 160-pound winger, Lamont believes his championship pedigree from the BCHL will be valuable in the college game.

“”I feel my experience in the playoffs will benefit the team, and hopefully win a championship,” said Lamont.

SFU competes in the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) against teams such as Selkirk College, the University of Victoria, Trinity Western University and Eastern Washington University.
