Snapped

November 25, 2014

The Dauphin Kings scored five goals in the second period, and that’s all they would need as they rolled to a 5-3 victory over the Neepawa Natives Tuesday night at Credit Union Place.

Tyler Garrioch led the way for Dauphin with three goals (8, 9 & 10) as the Kings snapped a five game losing skid and picked up their tenth win of the season. Other scorers included Graeme Hore (2) and Dylan Bredahl (3). Garrioch’s night included four points while Bredahl had two.

Local product Connor Shaw started in his first Junior ‘A’ game for the Kings. He played well, stopping 28 of 31 shots he faced. Shaw also made some key saves at important times in the contest, including one on a Drake Lindsay breakaway in the second period. On the other side Dauphin had 41 shots on Neepawa netminder Alex Henry.

Special Teams got a bit back on track Tuesday for the Kings. They finished the night 1 for 5 on the Power Play and 4 for 4 on the Penalty Kill.

With the victory Dauphin moves to 10-14-4 on the season and they hop up to seventh in the MJHL Standings, tied for sixth with Swan Valley (24 points). The Kings get a few days off before their next game, it comes Saturday when they visit the Selkirk Steelers. You can listen to the game on 730 CKDM, Pre Game 7:20pm, puck drop is 7:30pm!

Thanks for following tonight!

Since you were kind enough to read that recap, here’s a free interview with Kings Head Coach and General Manager Marlin Murray after the game. We begin with his overall thoughts…

Team Stats

Kings 9-14-4: We touched on it about a week ago. The Dauphin Kings are in a section on their schedule where they need to win some games considering they’re up against teams they’re fighting with for positioning in the MJHL. So far the Kings have dropped games to Selkirk and Virden. On the horizon Dauphin has Selkirk and Wayway before meeting Winnipeg next Friday and Virden on Saturday. You could say at least three of those four games are winnable. Although the Kings are in a slump right now, it still feels like this team is not far off from getting on the right track and winning a bunch of games in a row. The poor Special Teams Friday in Virden have hit Dauphin when it comes to where they sit in the league. The Kings Power Play is still fourth in the league, but down to 17.56%. Dauphin’s Penalty Kill has slipped to fifth, it’s at 84.21%. At home this month the Kings are 1-2-1, this season as the home team they’re 5-4-3. Chance Thomas (Powered by Grinds) remains atop the Kings in scoring going into tonight, he has 20 points (10G, 10A).

NEAT STATS GOING IN

Chance Thomas (Powered by Grinds) is on a 7 game point streak (5G, 4A).

Ryan Edevold is on a 2 game point streak (0G, 2A).

Natives 8-16-1: For yet another season, at least for right now, the Neepawa Natives find themselves at the bottom of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League Standings. However, this Neepawa Natvies team is different from ones in years past. From what I’ve seen so far I can tell Neepawa is going in a better direction, they’re not back on the road just yet, but they have driven out of the ditch and are on the shoulder of the highway. Neepawa may not make the playoffs this year, but I can see them getting in the near future for sure. This Natives club, from what I’ve seen, is much more hardworking than in years past. The hard work, however, isn’t reflected in Neepawa’s Special Teams. Their Power Play is second worst in the MJHL (12.60%) and their Penalty Kill is dead last (75.25%). The Natives have also given up a whopping 11 shorthanded goals already this season. Leading them in scoring is Drake Lindsay (11G, 16A) with 27 points.

Kings Acquire 20 Year Old

The Dauphin Kings added some speed and strong work ethic to their hockey club Monday.

November 24th – 11:41am – The Dauphin Kings have acquired 20 year old forward Jamie Miller from the Melfort Mustangs of the SJHL for future considerations.

Miller spent three seasons in Melfort taking part in 97 games over that span.

The former Lloydminster AAA Bobcat picked up only 22 points in his career with Melfort but was apparently known for his speed and strong work on the defensive side of the puck. In 10 games this season he has two goals.

It’s unknown right now if Miller will be in the Kings lineup tomorrow when Dauphin hosts Neepawa at Credit Union Place. Check back here tomorrow to find out!

Dauphin Kings Three ★’s Of The Week

November 24, 2014

3 Stars Banner4039

Another two game week last week for the Dauphin Kings.

The results saw Dauphin drop two contests. On Tuesday they lost 4-1 to the Selkirk Steelers at Credit Union Place, and then the Kings came up short 5-3 in Virden on Friday night.

Coming into this week the Kings find themselves on a five game losing skid and eighth in the MJHL.

This week is another light one for Dauphin. On Tuesday they welcome the Neepawa Natives to Credit Union Place. Game time for that contest is 7:00pm on FastHockey.

NOTE: Tuesday’s game against Neepawa is “Rain Check Night” meaning you can bring any unused season tickets to get into the game. So gather up some friends and come check out the hockey!

On Saturday the Kings will go south to Selkirk for the first time to skate with the Steelers. You can hear Saturday’s game on 730 CKDM, the Pre Game Show gets going at 7:20pm with opening face off at 7:30pm!

After this week things start to get a bit busier for the Kings, they’ll play in three contests next week and then four the week after…

Here’s the latest edition of RAPID FIRE with Dauphin Kings D-man Lucas Nagel:

Three ‘s Of The Week

3. Kirklan Lycar

ly7

Even though he only picked up a point in Virden in the Kings 5-3 loss to the Oil Capitals, I still thought Kirklan Lycar played well in the two games Dauphin took part in this week. With all the Power Play chances Friday against the Oil Capitals Lycar did have a few looks, but was unable to capitalize. This season Kirklan is sixth on the Kings in scoring with 10 points, but he is tied for third on the team in goals with seven.

2. Mathieu Lapointe

pointe4

Like Lycar, Mathieu Lapointe probably could have had a few more points this past week for the Kings too. He did get an assist in Dauphin’s loss in Virden, but again, like Lycar he had a handful of opportunities on the evening but couldn’t finish them. When it comes to this month Lapointe has two goals and four assists. He’s second on the team in points with 18.

1. Chance Thomas

thomas23

The point streak continues for Kings forward Chance Thomas (Powered by Grinds). Thomas enters play this week on a seven game stretch. He’s got five goals and four assists in that span and continues to lead the Kings in points with 20. This season he has 10 goals and 10 assists which is two points in front of Mathieu Lapointe (9G, 9A) and three ahead of Tyler Garrioch (7G, 10A) and Ben Hull (6G, 11A).

Virden Beats Dauphin In Power Play Filled Affair

November 21, 2014

IMG_4039.PNG

The Dauphin Kings and Oil Capitals played over half their game on the Power Play Friday night at Tundra Oil & Gas Place and in the end it was Virden coming out on top 5-3.

The story Friday were the Power Plays, both clubs played almost the entire second period on the PP. In total nine man advantages took place including one for five minutes in the middle frame. When the evening was complete Dauphin ended things 0 for 9 on the Power Play and 4 for 7 on the Penalty Kill.

Both teams combined for 170 minutes in penalties.

Unfortunately for the Kings the game was decided by Special Teams. If it was decided by five-on-five Dauphin would have taken it 3-1, but that wasn’t the case. Even though the tilt was filled with man advantages, the Kings had their chances and could not capitalize. Much like Tuesday against Selkirk.

Scoring for Dauphin Friday were Chance Thomas (10), Cody Nelson (3) and Hayden Pierce (2). Troy Martyniuk (4-8) lost the game in net however Kings Assistant Coach Marc Berry and I agreed he was solid, but might have liked to have the first goal against back.

Dauphin was behind 5-1 going into the third period, but give them credit for battling back and making it a 5-3 contest. It should have been 5-4 but a goal that should’ve counted was waived off because the official was in a poor position and lost sight of the puck, which was still loose.

Another positive for the Kings was the fact they heavily out shot Virden. The final shots Friday were 40-23 Dauphin. They hit double digits every period.

Special Teams will likely be on the menu at practice for the Kings over the next few days. Their record is now 9-14-4 on the season and they’ve lost four straight. Dauphin’s next action comes on Tuesday when they host the Neepawa Natives at Credit Union Place. Game time is 7:00pm

Thanks for following tonight and good night from the bus…
