The Espanola Express are proud to announce the acquisition of 19 year old Zack Matyasik for the upcoming season. Matyasik played last season for the Brockville Tikis in the CCHL2 and was the team’s leading scorer. Matyasik posted 42 points in 52 games last year with the Tikis, scoring 20 goals, 22 assists and 36 PIMs. The Express staff expect the Syracuse, New York native to continue his scoring ways under the guidance of new Head Coach Clancy.
“Zack is a fast skilled forward, with great vision and is always dangerous around the net,” commented GM Chad Clarke. “Zack had the opportunity to move up and play with the CCHL Braves this year and he chose to join the Express to develop and advance his career,” added Clarke
