Backlog Of Kings Transactions Announced

July 29, 2015

tracker1

The Dauphin Kings were finally able to announce a number of transactions today after patiently waiting for the last couple of weeks.

The reason for the delay was MJHL Commissioner Kim Davis was on holidays so no moves could be approved, but now that he has returned deals across the league can be announced.

It’s actually been more than a month since my last post on here! However, there’s no need to worry, things will be heating up with just over a month until Kings Fall Camp opens at Credit Union Place. In fact I believe the ice is beginning to go in this week. I’ll post pictures on Twitter when I get a chance!

Also, 730 CKDM will release the 2015-16 Broadcast Schedule in the coming days. It may be a bit delayed because, as some of you may know, 730 CKDM is moving into a new state of the art building and moving is a top priority. The station expects to be in the building sometime in the next two months (August or September).

TRADE

July 29th – 3:30pm The Dauphin Kings have acquired the CJHL playing rights of forward Romano Morrison (95) from the Whitecourt Wolverines of the AJHL for future considerations.

This move is one the Kings have made a couple times this off season. One that brings in a player that knows what he’s doing and can help the younger guys along the way. Romano Morrison joins a number of other 20 year olds with loads of experience. He’s racked up over 100 games in the Alberta Junior Hockey League and I’m told he’s also friends with current King Chance Thomas. I expect Morrison will have the same type role as Rory Davidson who was acquired earlier this summer. Dauphin will look for him to make an immediate impact and possibly slip into a top six role.

Boyle is another 19 year old the Kings will add to their fall camp roster. The picture above doesn’t state it, but Boyle is 6’02, 190lbs. Dauphin will no doubt be a young team again this season, but all their young players are very skilled and it will be one of a few interesting battles to watch at camp. According to my numbers, the Kings have over ten 18 year olds set to attend camp. Boyle will turn 19 in September.

Brandon Young

Some Stats: HERE

Another fun battle to watch at camp will be on the Kings blue line. Currently Dauphin has numerous D-men, most of which are 19 years of age. You can add another 19 year old to the mix in Brandon Young. Young joins the club with leadership and scoring ability.

Below you’ll read “Brandon Young hails from Twin Lakes, MI. He’s a 6.04, 190 lb defenceman that spent last season with the Reeths-Puffer Varsity team in Michigan High School League. In 27 games last season, Young had an impressive 48 points including 18 goals, in 27 games leading the team in scoring. The senior defenceman and team captain became the first player in Reeth-Puffer Rocket history to earn Dream Team Honours as selected by the Michigan High School Hockey Coaches Association. Young was also named the Muskegon Chronicle’s MLive Player of the Year for Hockey (READ ARTICLE HERE). The big defenceman was heavily recruited this off season but in the end chose to come to the city of sunshine.”

Here’s the release from the Kings…

The Kings have committed  to players 1996 Forward Zac Boyle and 1996 defenceman Brandon Young.  Kings also added 1995 forward Ramano Morrison from Whitecourt wolverines for future considerations.

Zac Boyle hails from Wichita, Kansas and was born in Montreal, Quebec.. The 6.02, 190 lb forward spent last season in Florida playing in the USPHL Elite League with the Florida Eels. In 40 games last season as an 18 year old, Boyle put up 32 points including 13 goals. He went on to add another two goals in three playoff games.

“Zac has a good frame and moves well for his size.” said Kings Assistant Coach Marc Berry. “He had very good numbers last season down south and his game should translate well to the MJHL. Zac will add size and some offensive punch to our forward group, areas we felt needed some help.”

Brandon Young hails from Twin Lakes, MI. Young is a 6.04, 190 lb defenceman that spent last season with the Reeths-Puffer Varsity team in Michigan Highschool League. In 27 games last season, Young had an impressive 48 points including 18 goals, in 27 games leading the team in scoring. The senior defenceman and team captain became the first player in Reeth-Puffer Rocket history to earn Dream Team Honours as selected by the Michigan High School Hockey Coaches Association. Young was also named the Muskegon Chronicle’s MLive Player of the Year for Hockey. The big defenceman was heavily recruited this offseason but in the end chose to come to the city of sunshine.

“We were very excited to recruit Brandon to Dauphin.” said Kings Head Coach/GM Marlin Murray.  “He’s got great size for a defenceman without losing mobility. He’s a good skater, smart with the puck and has a good shot from the point.  Once he feels comfortable in our league, Brandon has the ability to play a lot of minutes in key situations. He played nearly 40 minutes a night  for his high school team last season.”

Romano Morrison was acquired in a trade from the Whitecourt Wolverines in the AJHL for future considerations. The 6.01 ft 190 lb winger had 23 points including 10 goals in 55 games as a nineteen year old for the Wolverines last season. The veteran forward brings a ton of experience to the Kings having played 114 games in the AJHL with Whitecourt and Calgary. The Kings will look for the Edmonton product to make an immediate impact on their line up.

“Romano is a very competitive player, and he hates to lose.” said Berry. “He has a great work ethic. He blocks shots and likes to finish checks. He can be a terror for opposing defencemen on the forecheck. Romano is a high energy type of player that will add a veteran presence and leadership to our hockey club. We’re looking for Romano to play top line minutes this season due to his size and skill set.”
