Brandon Young scored the game winner 1:15 into overtime as the Dauphin Kings beat the Swan Valley Stampeders 2-1 Tuesday night at Credit Union Place.

The tight contest saw just three goals, with two coming in the middle frame. Kirklan Lycar was in the right place at the right time for his 19th of the season when he fired in a rebound off an Aaron Kellogg shot. The Stampeders responded seven minutes later when former Parkland Ranger Cody Ellingson notched his 11th of the campaign. The teams would go scoreless the rest of the way until Brandon Young (4) launched a point shot that was tipped in by Swan Valley forward Josh Tripp.

For the second straight game Jarrod Schamerhorn (9-6) was excellent, making some key saves for the Kings and helping the club to the two points. He stopped 29 of 30 shots for his second straight victory between the pipes for Dauphin. Zach De Graves took the loss for Swan Valley, he stopped 33 of 35.

Both clubs went scoreless on the Power Play. Dauphin was 0 for 4 while Swan Valley finished 0 for 1.

The win is the Kings’ (18-29-3) second straight and gets them within three points of the Selkirk Steelers for 8th in the MJHL Standings. Dauphin, however, has played one extra game (50).

With 10 contests left in their campaign the Kings will now hit the road for three games in three nights starting Friday in Steinbach against one of the top teams in the league. After that Dauphin visits Winkler on Saturday and Portage on Sunday. You can hear all three games on 730 CKDM. Opening face off Friday night is 7:30pm.

Kings Start Busy Week At Home

February 9, 2016

bat2

The Dauphin Kings will look to carry over some of their strong play from Saturday night’s 5-2 win over Selkirk when they take on their Highway 10 rival, the Swan Valley Stampeders.

It’s the second to last meeting between the two teams this season with Swan Valley winning three of the four get togethers so far.

Dauphin enters the day 9th in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League standings while Swan Valley is 6th. Dauphin is trying to catch and pass Selkirk for home ice in the MJHL survivor series while Swan Valley is trying to distance themselves from the OCN Blizzard who are just a single point back (More below).

This is the start of a very busy week for the Kings. After tonight they hit the road for 3-in-3 this weekend.

Watch tonight’s tilt on FASTHockey, opening face off is 7:00pm. If you can’t watch or go to the game then follow men on Twitter (@ChristianCKDM) for updates!

Team Stats

Kings 17-29-3 (9th): The Dauphin Kings will look for another key two points tonight when they take on the Swan Valley Stampeders. A win by the Kings would get them within three points of the Selkirk Steelers in the standings. Of the four games this week tonight’s is the “most winnable” one for Dauphin. After this evening they hit the road for three games in three nights against the MJHL’s top ranked teams (Steinbach, Winkler & Portage). The Kings bring in the MJHL 10th ranked Power Play tonight 14.73%, but the unit did score Saturday evening against Selkirk. Dauphin’s Penalty Kill sits 8th in the league at 77.38%. Kirklan Lycar (18G, 23A) remains atop the club with 41 points, Tyler Garrioch (12G, 25A) is second with 37 and Matthew Greening (10G, 21A) is third at 31. The Kings are 1-1-0 on their current three game home stand.

NEAT TREATS

Oliver Lester is on a 2 game point streak (2G, 0A).

Stampeders 21-25-5 (6th): For now, the Swan Valley Stampeder occupy the last spot in the standings that will avoid the survivor series. If the post season was to begin today Swan would meet the Winkler Flyers. In fact, regardless of who finish sixth, they will likely meet Winkler as the Flyers are almost secured in the number three seed. Lately the Stampeders have struggled a little bit, with losses in four of their last five. Those four losses, however, were to the top three teams in the league. After tonight Swan Valley will play five of their next seven on home ice, including a game against Dauphin in two weeks. Special Teams have the Stampeders ranked 7th on the Power Play (17.73%) and Penalty Kill (78.31%). Former Parkland Ranger Josh Tripp (22G, 17A) is the top scorer on Swan Valley, he has 39 points. The Stampeders are 3-5-0 on the road since the start of 2016.

Dauphin Kings Three ★‘s Of The Week

February 8, 2016

3 Stars Banner4039

The Dauphin Kings will look to build off their success against Selkirk when they kick off a busy week on Tuesday against the Swan Valley Stampeders.

Last weekend the Kings lost two and won one. They came up short in the third period in Virden in a 6-3 loss to the Oil Capitals on Tuesday. Friday Dauphin dropped a disappointing 10-2 decision to the Portage Terriers and then on Saturday the club rebounded with an important 5-2 win over Selkirk. The decision against the Steelers has the Kings back in the mix for home ice in the MJHL survivor series, but they most continue their strong play to have a shot.

This week the Kings have four games. It’s likely their final busy week before the end of the regular season early next month. On Tuesday Dauphin hosts the Swan Valley Stampeders at Credit Union Place. Then the team will get set for three games in three nights this weekend. It’ll be another test as the club visits Steinbach, Winkler and Portage. You can hear all three games on 730 CKDM!

Three ‘s Of The Week

3. Local Line

3

The line of Tyler Derkach (1G), Matthew Greening (1G, 1A this week) and Daniel Chartrand (1G, 1A) came up big in the Kings 5-2 victory over the Selkirk Steelers on Saturday. The unit was strong down low along the boards in the contest and generated a number of good scoring chances. Look for them to remain together coming into this week.

2. Oliver Lester

dab

Oliver Lester continued his solid play last week with two goals. The Calgary product scored a key goal in the Kings 5-2 victory over the Selkirk Steelers on Saturday (Below). The 18 year old is third on the Kings in D-man scoring with 12 points. (5G, 7A)

1. Jarrod Schamerhorn

scham

Jarrod Schamerhorn made his return to the pipes over the weekend for the Dauphin Kings. Although he battled in relief of Brandon Holtby on Friday, Schamerhorn looked very good in Dauphin’s win over the Selkirk Steelers on Saturday. The 20 year old from Victoria BC made a number of key saves to keep the Kings ahead of Selkirk in the second and third periods. Schamerhorn has a 8-6 record this season with Dauphin. His goals against average sits at 3.53 while he has a .880 save percentage.

The Rebound

February 6, 2016

db

The Dauphin Kings put forth a much better effort Saturday in a 5-2 victory over the visiting Selkirk Steelers.

The Kings got started early when Kirklan Lycar (18) scored on Dauphin’s first Power Play. Selkirk responded but the Kings regained the lead when local product Tyler Derkach notched his second of the season off a Trevor Kavanaugh point shot. Selkirk kept pace with the Kings in the middle frame, scoring early on to tie things up at two. That was the last time the two clubs would be even. Dauphin scored three unanswered after that, one in the second and two in the final frame. In order the goals were picked up by Tyler Garrioch (12), Oliver Lester (5) and Daniel Chartrand (6).

The Parkland Ranger line of Matthew Greening, Tyler Derkach and Daniel Chartrand was reunited and was arguably Dauphin’s best line Saturday.

Jarrod Schamerhorn was superb between the pipes for the Kings and made some big saves en route to his eighth win of the campaign (8-6). He turned aside 33 of 35 shots he faced while the Kings fired 31 on Selkirk’s Hayden Dola.

Dauphin’s Special Teams were on point Saturday. On the Power Play they finished 1 for 3 and they were 5 for 5 on the Penalty Kill.

With the victory the Kings (17-29-3) snap their seven game losing streak and pull within five points up Selkirk for 8th in the standings. Both teams have 11 games left in their season. Dauphin saw 1336 fans in the stands for the contest.

For the Kings, their next game comes on Tuesday when they welcome the Swan Valley Stampeders to Credit Union Place. Game time is 7:00pm.

Quick Turnaround

February 6, 2016

scham

Less than 24 hours after one of their worst losses in a long time, the Dauphin Kings return to the ice to host the Selkirk Steelers tonight at Credit Union Place.

Dauphin dropped a disappointing 10-2 loss to the Portage Terriers on Friday and nothing will cure their frustrations more than two points this evening against a team they have somewhat struggled against this season.

It’s the sixth and final meeting between the two clubs this season, but if the playoffs were to start today the best-of-three survivor series would start in Selkirk between the Kings and Steelers.

Watch tonight’s game on FASTHockey, opening face off is 7:00pm. If you can’t watch then follow me on Twitter (@ChristianCKDM) for updates!

Remember tonight’s tilt is FREE for fans to attend thanks to North of 51 and Western Bakery in Dauphin. So just show up and watch hockey! There’s lots of other stuff going on at the rink outside of the game as well.

Team Stats

Kings 16-29-3 (9th): The Dauphin Kings can’t afford to dwell on Friday’s 10-2 decision to the Portage Terriers. Instead they must refocus and play a better game against a team they know they can beat. Dauphin, in stretches, has played well against the Steelers. Selkirk owns the season series though, winning four of the five matchups so far. After a bad night on the Special Teams side of things yesterday the Kings bring in the MJHL’s 10th ranked Power Play (14.48%) and 8th ranked Penalty Kill (77.02%). Kirklan Lycar (17G, 22A) did not pick up any points Friday, but still leads Dauphin in that category with 39. The Kings have lost seven straight and are seven points behind Selkirk coming into this game. Both clubs are even in games played at 48.

NEAT TREATS

Chance Thomas is on a 4 game point streak (0G, 4A).

Matthew Greening is on a 3 game point streak (1G, 2A).

Aaron Kellogg is on a 2 game point streak (1G, 1A).

Steelers 20-26-2 (8th): The Selkirk Steelers were also in action last night. They lost a home game 2-0 to the Virden Oil Capitals. The Steelers are just four points behind the OCN Blizzard (3 games in hand) for 7th in the standings and only five back of Swan Valley (2 games in hand) for 6th. So they likely will have a bit of a different agenda coming into this affair. Selkirk’s Special Teams are about on the same level as Dauphin’s. The Steelers’ Power Play is 8th in the MJHL at 17.61% while their Penalty Kill is 9th at 76.05%. Ty Kraus (17G, 34A) leads Selkirk in points with 51. The Steelers are 2-2-0 on the road since the start of 2016.
