The Dauphin Kings made a trade Monday afternoon that sees three players in the transaction.

October 20th – 12:35pm – The Dauphin Kings have acquired 19 year old forward Regan Yew and 19 year old D-man Robin Yew from the Battlefords Northstars of the SJHL for 20 year old D-man Brendan Dusik and future considerations.

The move sees the Kings send Brendan Dusik to the Battlefords Northstars in exchange for twins. 19 year olds Regan Yew and Robin Yew join Dauphin with multiple years of Junior A experience in Alberta and Saskatchewan. The younger Kings get a bit older with these additions. They’re now up to nine 19 year olds on the club. As mentioned below, the Yew brothers are expected to be in Dauphin for the upcoming three-in-three road trip.

Below is the release from the Dauphin Kings….

The Dauphin Kings are pleased to announce the acquisition of Regan and Robin Yew from the Battlefors North Stars. Going back to Battlefords is Brendan Dusik and future considerations.

The Yew brothers hail from Ile-A-La-Crosse, SK. Robin is a 5’11”, 160lb defenceman. In 10 games with the Stars this season, Yew had 1 goal and 4 assists for 5 points. Regan is a 6’1”, 195lb forward that had 3 points including a goal in 11 games so far this season.

“Robin has good feet and moves the puck well.” stated Kings HC/GM Marlin Murray. “Regan has shown in the past that he can play as his AAA numbers indicate and will get a very good opportunity here. Both of these guys are very passionate players and have great character.”

The Yew brothers are expected to be in Dauphin for the up coming weekend road trip. The Dauphin Kings would like to welcome Regan and Robin as well as their family to the organization.

Terriers Clip Kings In Overtime

October 19, 2014

35

The Dauphin Kings gave the Portage Terriers a scare Sunday night at Credit Union Place, but once again the RBC Cup hosts were able to avoid their first loss of the season as they beat Dauphin 4-3 in overtime.

It was kind of a back and forth affair. The Kings got out to a 2-0 lead early in the second period on goals by Cody Nelson (2) and Matt Kenney (5), but then Portage came back to even it up at two in the middle frame. Then Dauphin’s Kirklan Lycar (3) grabbed a 3-2 advantage for his club before the Terriers evened it up late in the third. A bad bounce in overtime sneaked through the legs of Riley Corbin (5-5) and gave Portage two points.

Looking at the score sheet does not do this game justice. The first thing that pops out at you are the shots. Portage officially out shot the Kings 47-22. I would say a good amount of those shots however were not quality ones by the Terriers. Out of the almost 50, probably 10-15 were strong opportunities.

Side note: I thought the shots tonight were quite inflated on the Portage side. Officially they had 25 in the first period alone. I would say they had 18 at best. On the other hand I thought Dauphin had more than 22 overall, probably more like 25-27.

Both goalies played extremely well. Riley Corbin gave the Kings a chance to win the tilt by making some big saves early and a few more later on. Talor Joseph was also strong between the pipes for the Terriers. He robbed two point blank chances in the slot for Dauphin players, both were glove saves.

Power Plays were also a big factor in the contest. Dauphin’s Special Teams won the night I would say, they went 1 for 2 on the Power Play and 5 for 5 on the Penalty Kill.

Honestly I thought this was a good effort by the Kings, even though the stats suggest they were heavily outplayed, I thought they stood their ground well and almost came away with two points. Now they need to build off this.

So the Terriers continue to roll and are now 14-0-0 on the season. The Kings meanwhile slip to 7-5-2 on the campaign and remain fourth in the league’s standings. Dauphin will close out a three game home stand on Tuesday when they welcome the Neepawa Natives to Credit Union Place. Game time is 7:00pm.

Hosting The Hosts

October 19, 2014

The Dauphin Kings play their second game in a three game home stand tonight when they welcome the RBC Cup host Portage Terriers to Credit Union Place.

Dauphin is looking for a better effort after Friday’s 6-3 loss at the hands of the Winkler Flyers. Even though they were down 6-1 in that affair, I felt the Kings played better in the third period, and if they can carry the last five minutes of that frame over they’ll be ok.

Regardless if they do or don’t carry that effort over, the Kings will need one of their best tonight against a team that has yet to lose this season.

You can watch this evening’s affair on FastHockey, it goes at 7:00pm. I’ll get things started right around 6:55pm. If you can’t watch then follow me on Twitter (@ChristianCKDM)!

After tonight Dauphin wraps up their home stand on Tuesday against the Neepawa Natives. Then they kick off a three-game-in-three-night road trip in Steinbach on Friday.

Team Stats

Kings 7-5-1: Last time the Dauphin Kings took on the Terriers they ended up losing 6-3 in Portage. The game had Dauphin playing well in some points and not so great in others. The one key thing from that game was Dauphin’s discipline, and it will be a critical piece to tonight’s tilt as well. If the Kings can stay out of the box they’ll have a chance for sure. Speaking of Special Teams the Kings come into the game with a Power Play clicking at 18.87% which is good enough for fourth in the MJHL. Dauphin’s Penalty Kill took a bit of a hit after giving up two goals against Winkler but it’s still third at 87.69%. With a goal and an assist on Friday, Mathieu Lapointe (6G, 4A) now leads the Kings with 10 points this season.

NEAT STATS GOING INTO THE GAME

Mathieu Lapointe is on a 4 game point streak (3G, 3A).

Ben Hull is on a 2 game point streak (1G, 1A).

Kirklan Lycar is on a 2 game point streak (1G, 1A).

Riley Corbin has won 2 straight starts.

Terriers 13-0-0: Coming into tonight the Portage Terriers are the only team in the CJHL without a loss this season. The next closest you could say are the Notre Dame Hounds in Saskatchewan, who are 8-0-1. There have been times this season when Portage has been close to a loss. Most recently they beat Winkler 4-3 in a shootout and they have played in a few one goal games throughout the season. You have to believe that considering they’re going to the final tournament of the CJHL season regardless of what happens, the Terriers are looking for things to play for before the post season rolls around in March. As long as they remain undefeated I’d say that’s something to try and extend every night. This evening sees Portage bring in the MJHL’s second ranked Power Play (20.15%) and best Penalty Kill (93.15%). Leading the Terriers and the MJHL in scoring are Jordyn Boyd (12G, 10A) and Zach Waldvogel (10G, 12A), they each have 22 points. Portage also saw Landon Peel finally get into the lineup last night against Wayway. The 20 year D-man came down from the WHL after serving a suspension, originally Peel’s CJHL rights were acquired by the Terriers in a trade with the Dauphin Kings. That was last year’s deal that saw forwards Brent Wold and Dylan Butler come to Dauphin, the other piece was forward Taylor Sanheim who now skates with his brother and the WHL’s Calgary Hitmen.

Kings Doubled By Flyers

October 17, 2014

edevold1

The Dauphin Kings came out flat Friday night and it cost them as they lost 6-3 to the Winkler Flyers.

The loss is Dauphin’s first one in regulation at home this season, moving their home ice record to 4-1-1.

Winkler scored three in the first and three in the second to remain undefeated in October (4-0-3).

Dauphin seemed to get some life in the second period when Ben Hull grabbed his third of the season, but the Flyers responded with two in the second half of the period. Former Kings Cam Whyte had a hatrick on the night, scoring all three in the middle frame.

Other scorers for the Kings were Kirklan Lycar (3) and Mathieu Lapointe (6). Troy Martyniuk started the game between the pipes but did not finish. He gave up six goals on 25 shots but none were his fault you could argue. Riley Corbin came in for the third period and stopped all 15 he faced. In total the Flyers out shot the Kings 40-24.

Power Plays saw the Kings finish 1 for 4 while they were 3 for 5 on the Penalty Kill.

The loss slips the Kings to 7-5-1 on the season, but luckily for them, teams close to them did not win Friday meaning Dauphin still sits tied for third in the standings with the Winnipeg Blues. The Kings return to action Sunday when they Portage Terriers come to town. The RBC Cup hosts, as of right now, have yet to lose this season (12-0-0).

Kings Look To Continue Success At Home

October 17, 2014

cel

For the second straight weekend the Dauphin Kings will face two good tests on their home ice.

Last week Dauphin responded to the call for a good effort, beating Steinbach and Winnipeg at home.

This time the Kings will play arguably a tougher weekend set. Tonight they tangle with the second place team in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League and Sunday they’ll battle the RBC Cup hosts.

First up the Winkler Flyers come in playing some solid hockey. They almost beat the Portage Terriers the other night, falling just short to them in a shootout. Winkler was my pick for dark horse team at the start of the MJHL season.

Remember the One Hour Power Play Show is on 730 CKDM this afternoon. It runs from 4-5pm. Wanna know what’s gonna be on the show? Then CLICK HERE!!!

Tonight’s contest can be seen and heard on FastHockey. I’ll get things started right around 6:50pm, opening face off is 7:00pm. If you can’t watch or listen, you know the rules, follow me on Twitter for updates (@ChristianCKDM)!

Here’s Kings Head Coach and General Manger Marlin Murray. We begin our latest interview with talk on the fact his team is 4-0-1 at home so far this season…

Team Stats

Kings 7-4-1: Winners of three straight the Kings will likely need to put everything on the ice tonight if they’re going to come away with a victory. Last time Dauphin battled Winkler they ended up blowing a 4-2 lead in the third period, falling 6-4 in Winkler. I feel the Kings have grown a lot since then and it will be interesting to see how they play this weekend against the top two teams in the league. A win this evening would be huge for Dauphin’s confidence going into Sunday. Special Teams, as you heard in the interview with Kings Head Coach and GM Marlin Murray, are getting a lot better. Coming into this evening the Dauphin Power Play is third in the MJHL at 17.65%. The Kings Penalty Kill is also third at 89.83%. However, both the coaching staff and myself agree that those official numbers from the MJHL are a bit off, especially on the Power Play where I believe the Kings are a bit closer to 20%. Tyler Garrioch (4G, 5A) and Chance Thomas (3G, 6A) both lead Dauphin in points with nine. In case you missed it, the MJHL announced yesterday that Garrioch has been suspended for three games for his check on Winnipeg D-man Stephen Kleysen last Saturday. The suspension means Garrioch will return to the Kings lineup on Tuesday next week when his club hosts the Neepawa Natives at Credit Union Place.

NEAT STATS GOING INTO THE GAME

Rylan Freed is on a 3 game point streak (3G, 3A).

Mathieu Lapointe is on a 3 game point streak (2G, 2A).

Chance Thomas is on a 3 game point streak (1G, 2A).

Troy Martyniuk has won 2 straight starts.

Riley Corbin has won 2 straight starts.

Flyers 7-2-3: Even though I said the Winkler Flyers would finish around sixth in the MJHL standings by the end of the season I believe they are currently playing to their potential. I figured they could finish as high as third when everything is said and done in early March. Like Dauphin, the Flyers are having a good October. They have yet to lose in regulation this month, going 3-0-3. Apparently the shootout is the Achilles heel for Winkler, they’re 0-3 so far this season season in the breakaway contest. Good thing it’s just straight overtime in the playoffs, but I’m getting ahead of myself… Special Teams are good, but not as good as you would expect from a group that is so solid offensively. The Flyers are seventh on the Power Play in the MJHL (11.54%) but their Penalty Kill is very strong at second in the league (90.24%). I also said Tristen Keck (12G, 2A) would be one of the top scorers in the MJHL this year when I gave my predictions in September, so far so good, he’s fourth and is tied for the lead league in goals. Keck’s point total is 14.
