Kings Make Deal With Pistons

August 1, 2014

ed

As Dauphin Kings Camp draws a little bit closer (Less than a month away), the MJHL club made a trade today with the Steinbach Pistons.

August 1st – 1:48pm – The Dauphin Kings have acquired 19 year old forward Ryan Edevold from the Steinbach Pistons for 16 year old forward Jermaine Loewen.

The Kings sent prospect forward Jermaine Loewen to the Pistons in exchange for import forward Ryan Edevold, who turns 20 in November. Edevold is 5’10 and comes in at 190lbs. Last season he had 15 points (9G, 6A) in 52 games with Steinbach.

Dauphin Kings Head Coach and General Manager Marlin Murray speaks highly of the Crookston Minnesota product. “Ryan plays the game hard and is a good skater. He can play in many situations and his strong work ethic and excellent attitude will be welcomed to our club.”

The Kings open up ‘Main Camp’ on Friday August 29th and are at Credit Union Place all that weekend. Dauphin’s first exhibition game is on Tuesday September 2nd (7:00pm) when they host the Swan Valley Stampeders at Credit Union Place.

Neat Treat: The ice was just recently finished at Credit Union Place and the local arena will be hosting four-on-four hockey starting next week.

The Dauphin Kings completed another trade today as they continue to put the building blocks on the ground for the upcoming MJHL season.

This move is a three way deal and involves the Kings, Portage Terriers and Winkler Flyers.

Dauphin sends 19 year old forward Cam Whyte to the Portage Terriers who send him to the Winkler Flyers. Dauphin also moved the rights to 18 year old D-man Jordan Thomson to Portage. In return the Kings get a 19 year old (Drake Bodie) and two 18 year olds (Landon Plett & Hayden Pierce).

This is a good play right now in my opinion. The Kings needed to get younger, and you’re beginning to see that down the road Dauphin could be a very powerful team, maybe even this season. Of course that all depends on the development of players. However I like how the Kings bank is looking when it comes to prospects and up and coming players.

July 25th – 1:00pm – The Dauphin Kings have acquired 19 year old forward Drake Bodie, 18 year old forward Landon Plett and 18 year old defenseman Hayden Pierce in a three way trade with the Portage Terriers and Winkler Flyers. The Kings sent 19 year old forward Cam Whyte to the Portage Terriers who then moved him to the Winkler Flyers. Dauphin also sent the rights to 18 year old defenseman Jordan Thomson to the Portage Terriers. (More details below)

Here’s the FREE release from the Dauphin Kings…

_____

The Kings ship 18 year old Defenceman Jordan Thomson and 19 year old forward Cameron Whyte to the RBC cup host Portage Terriers. Whyte then would be traded to the Winkler Flyers along with 20 year old Defenceman Jon Carlson and future considerations. Portage would receive 20 year old Defenceman Tanner Jago from Winkler.

The Kings would do very well in the trade as they receive 3 impact players from the Portage Terriers.

1) 19 year old forward Drake Bodie. Bodie, a Thompson native, can play in all situations. “Bodie is a very good player in the MJHL. When he was in Wayway he played well. He had some injury problems while with Portage and his numbers don’t reflect the player that he can be.”,explains Kings HC/GM Marlin Murray .

2) 18 year old Landon Plett. Plett a 6’1 power forward was the Captain of the Eastman Selects this past season. The former 2011 1st round Bantam Draft pick for the Terriers had 24 goals and 30 assists for 54 points with the AAA midget club. “We really like what he brings to the table on and off the ice. A real solid kid that is well respected within the league. When talking with Jaquesy (Ex King Steven Jaques coached Plett this past season with the Eastman Selects) he spoke very high of his character and talent level. He protects the puck extremely well and has excellent hands around the net.” explains Murray. Plett “could” join Eastman Selects teammates Brayden Smook and Kirklan Lycar this season in Kings colours.

3) 18 year old Defenceman Hayden Pierce. Pierce graduated from the Winnipeg Thrashers AAA midget hockey club this past season. Pierce was a fifth round Bantam Draft selection for the Terriers in 2011. “Pierce a mobile, stay at home Defenceman has great size (6’1) and vision. He makes a very good first pass out of his own end. His teammate Troy Martyniuk spoke very highly of him as a player, teammate and person. We’re excited to add him” Murray.

Again, this is how the 3 team Blockbuster plays out:

Winkler receives Carlson, Whyte and futures.

Portage receives Thomson and Jago.

Dauphin receives Plett, Pierce and Bodie

Kings Restructure Board Of Directors

July 15, 2014

DauphinKings

The Dauphin Kings have adjusted their Board of Directors for the 2014-15 season to help improve the financial position of the team.

The Kings new structure was adopted at their regular meeting on Thursday, July 10th, and will consist of a President and seven Directors that will each oversee several subcommittees (similar to the structure of the 2010 RBC Cup and 2014 Western Canada Cup Host Committees).

As you read in past articles, Blaine Johnson has stepped down as President, meaning Randy Daley steps in.

Speaking of Randy Daley, here he is in an interview talking about the restructuring. Beginning with why it was done…

The new Dauphin Kings Board of Directors for the 2014-15 season are: 

President and Director of Hockey Operations – Randy Daley
Directors of Finance & Business Operations – Travis Roos & Dean Cooley
Director of Marketing – Carla Wolfenden (with Asst. Coach, Marc Berry)
Directors of External Relations – Mike Csversko & Blaine Johnson
Directors of Game Day Operations – Tim Inkster & Daryl Bacon

A shortage of volunteers was identified as a shortcoming of the previous structure, so a major recruitment drive will be undertaken by the respective Directors. Aside from continuing to provide a high quality on-ice product, the overall goal of the board is to improve the financial position of the team and retain the confidence of its fans and of the local business community.

Depth On D

July 15, 2014

dond

The Dauphin Kings have signed a big defenceman as the club hits the 45 days until their main camp opens for the 2014-15 season.

The latest addition is 20 year old defenceman Ben Hull from Littleton, Colorado. Hull finished last season with the Idaho Jr. Steelheads. In 19 games with the Steelheads, Hull had 10 goals and 9 assists for 19 points. The 6’3, 205 lb defenceman also went on to add 6 goals and 10 points in 10 playoff games and was named to the All-Thorne Cup Team in the WSHL. The WSHL is a 30 team league and stretches as far east as Texas, as far west as California and as far north as Washington State.

Kings Head Coach and General Manager Marlin Murray speaks highly of his newest acquisition. “Ben is a big bodied defenceman that can play in all situations. He will be heavily relied upon to be a dominant force on the back end. His shot will be a factor on our power play. We’re glad to add a significant piece”

This move could be one of the biggest in the off season for the Kings, at least how I see it. Following the end of last season Dauphin lost all of their defencemen to either signings or future consideration deals. So this addition could be very important come the months of February and March.

“I’m very excited to be apart of such a world class organization and hope that I can help lead us to another RBC Cup” said Hull.

Kings Drive For 500

July 14, 2014

seas

This Friday is the deadline for Dauphin Kings fans to get their season tickets for the upcoming MJHL campaign.

This year is an important one for the Kings who are, as most people know, in quite a large amount of debt (Around $200,000). The Kings are shooting for 500 season ticket holders before the early bird deadline.

Earlier today (Monday) I had Assistant Coach/Marketing Director Marc Berry and Carla Wolfenden on 730 CKDM to talk a bit about this week, and the fact that the team has shuffled their board of directors.

With the shuffle comes a couple changes, Blaine Johnson is no longer the MJHL club’s President as he has stepped down. That means Governor Randy Daley now takes over as President. You’ll hear a bit more about it in the FREE interview below.

Before the interview, here’s some quick information on Kings season tickets in case you’re wondering!

Shaw Signed

July 10, 2014

shawd1

The Dauphin Kings have signed another local player to their lineup for the upcoming season.

This time they inked 18 year old goaltender Connor Shaw.

A Dauphin product, Shaw spent last season with the Manitoba ‘AAA’ Midget Hockey League’s Parkland Rangers where he played over 1300 minutes and helped the team to a massive 2-1 victory over the Winnipeg Wild during the season. Arguably their biggest win of all time. Before that Shaw spent time with the Westman High School Hockey League’s Dauphin Clippers where he backstopped the club to the league finals in 2012-13.

Shaw has been watched closely throughout his career and was an auto protect by the Dauphin Kings in 2011.

Below is the release from the Kings…

The Dauphin Kings are pleased to announce that local product, Connor Shaw has signed with the hockey club.

“Connor has worked hard over the last few seasons to give himself the best possible chance at playing at the Junior A level.” said Kings AC Marc Berry. “He’s a very athletic goaltender and has excellent character. We are happy to have him signed and look forward to getting him into camp and continuing his development.”

Shaw has gotten to know the Kings first hand as his family have been billets. Shaw has also been the Kings back up in practises over the last 2 seasons when needed.

“Unbelievable feeling signing with the Dauphin Kings!” stated Shaw. “I can’t wait to get the season started!”

teeling

Forward Mitch VanTeeling is the next Dauphin King to further his hockey career.

Last year’s Captain and the longest serving King is headed to the York University Lions in Toronto for the upcoming CIS campaign.

VanTeeling was arguably the face of the Dauphin Kings franchise for a number of years. He along with Tanner Butler were two players that I got to watch from start to finish and it was a pleasure.

VanTeeling was a steady and reliable player both in the offensive and defensive zones. As mentioned in the article about Justin Valentino, VanTeeling was on that line that was matched up against other team’s top lines. They were the shut down line, and most nights they were greatly successful.

Off the ice VanTeeling was great in the community, taking part in numerous initiatives throughout his years with the Kings. He will be greatly missed.

Below are some treats and the release from the Dauphin Kings…

Mitch VanTeeling will be taking his talents east. This past season’s captain has committed to York University in the CIS.

VanTeeling has been a big part of the Kings for the better part of the last 4 seasons. He played his first full season in the MJHL with the Kings as a 17 year old, picking up 15 points and being named to the Canada West team in the CJHL Top Prospects game. In 208 regular season games with the pride, the Brandon product picked up 167 points including 40 goals. In his 50 career playoff games, VanTeeling racked up 20 points including 8 goals. During that time the Kings won two Sherwood Division titles, went to the league final twice, finished second at the Western Canada Cup and qualified for the RBC Cup. He was a huge part of this past season’s run to the RBC Cup, as he lead the Kings to the semi finals in Vernon, BC.

VanTeeling has worn a letter and been a part of the leadership group for the Kings for 3 out of his 4 seasons and has always been known as a reliable, responsible player. Mitch played a huge part on all special teams and lead by example each and every night.

“Obviously we’re very happy for Mitch.” said Kings AC Marc Berry. “Teels has been such a huge part of our organization over the last 4 seasons. With his size, skating and intelligence, he should adapt to the CIS game very well. Teels has always been a player that did the little things well. He’s very coachable and competes hard at both ends of the ice. We’re excited to see how he does at the next level.”

I’m excited to be moving on to the next level and school. Thanks to Marc and Marlin on everything they did for me, helping me move on and giving me a chance to win every year. I appreciate all their hard work and couldn’t have asked for a better place junior hockey’ – Mitch VanTeeling

Season Tickets are still on sale online at http://www.dauphinkings.com and in person at North of 51, Rogers Wireless. The early bird prices have been extended to July 18th.
