Team White Takes JoFo Cup

August 31, 2014


Drake Bodie had five points and Tyler Garrioch had two goals as Team White got by Team Black 7-0 at the 4th annual JoFo Cup, also known as the Dauphin Kings Intrasquad Game.

The first period was a bit of a quiet one as both teams failed to score, but in the second period things opened up.

Goaltenders Connor Shaw (White) and Troy Martyniuk (Black) were the starters for their respective teams. Both played strong, and each faced some key scoring chances. Shaw and Martyniuk were replaced by Riley Corbin (White) and Francis Marotte. Corbin and Marotte both played solid considering the chances they faced. Below are the goalie stats!

From my view it was a good weekend for the Kings. However some tough decisions lie ahead. Dauphin has a lot of very good young players, and that’s very evident when it comes to their 18 year olds. Many of them showed very well this weekend, in total the Kings have 12. Eighteen year old skaters that stood out the most in my mind Sunday evening for the JoFo Cup were (F) Landon Plett, (F) Rylan Freed, (F) Nolan Martens, (D) Riley Thiessen, (D) Ty Moffat and (D) Hayden Pierce.

Tomorrow the Kings will practice and get set for their first exhibition game, it’s on Tuesday when they host the Swan Valley Stampeders. Puck drop is 7:00pm at Credit Union Place.

For now, here’s the first of two interviews with Kings Head Coach and General Manager Marlin Murray, this one talks about the weekend and the schedule ahead…

My second interview is more of a feature with Murray. This time we discuss players that were let go by the team on Saturday night. We focus on the younger players Dauphin has listed, and how Murray thought they did…

Final Camp Thoughts:

You’ll hear this in a moment, but overall I thought the local players at Dauphin Kings Camp showed well. The future is bright for not only the Kings right now, but the Parkland Rangers in the Manitoba AAA Midget Hockey League. Players like Matthew Greening, Tyler Derkach, Branden Storey, Daniel Chartrand, Bradee Prokopchuk and more will have good seasons and it will benefit both themselves and the Kings down the road. Four goalies remain right now and all are solid for the Kings, each will get half of the club’s JoFo Cup on Sunday. Troy Martyniuk, Connor Shaw, Riley Corbin and Francis Marotte stand between the pipes for Dauphin. On D I liked a few players and that, in my opinion, is where Dauphin has the toughest decisions to make. I enjoyed watching the big and strong Ben Hull play during the weekend. I also thought local product Taran Lacquette looked good. Lots played well on the back end, and the same can be said for the forwards.

Here’s Kings Head Coach and General Manager Marlin Murray with his thoughts on the weekend so far…

Dauphin Kings Camp carried on Friday with two more games, this time four on four.

Below are summaries from both games and some stats. Again I apologize for poor updates today, tomorrow I won’t be working the clock so I’ll have more time for updates etc…

First day was a good one in my books. I like the idea of moving up from 3on3 to 4on4 to 5on5. Tomorrow at Dauphin Kings Camp will feature two more games for each group and both affairs will be five-on-five. Following tomorrow cuts will be made in the evening. You can check here after the late games for the cuts, I will post them as soon as I get the information.

Top Players So Far In My Opinion

(I have liked what I’ve seen from a bunch players, but I will single out one on each team to be fair and even.)


White: C.Thomas (3G) has looked strong through two games, has good speed and a nice shot. Looking forward to seeing more Saturday.

Black: R.Freed (2G) also showed some good speed on day one and was strong on the puck.

Green: S.MacKenzie (4G) had a very good first game scoring four, liked his shot and is good on his edges.

Red: C.McCallum (4G) also has a bunch of goals, big body and nice speed.


White: R.Thiessen has been noticeably unnoticeable which is, in this situation, a very good thing.

Black: B.Hull (1G) had some highlights today. A neat little goal in the second game and some excellent passing.

Green: T.Lacquette (1G) looked solid on the back end, made some nice passes and finished on a quick rush.

Red: C.Dea didn’t have any goals today but I enjoyed watching him skate and he made some good outlets.


White: R.Corbin is the only goalie on White, but could arguably be the best tender at camp, only eight goals against through 120 minutes.

Black: F.Marotte bounced back from a tough first game. I have a feeling he will only get better as the weekend goes on.

Green: R.Bannerman had a solid first half of his team’s second game of the day, only allowing a couple goals.

Red: T.Martyniuk didn’t look like he missed much of a beat after a short summer.
