August 6, 2015

Dauphin Kings Fall Camp is looking more and more like it will be one of the most competitive in years after the club announced two more net acquisitions Thursday afternoon. They also moved two players from last year’s squad. In total six players are in the news today!

After the MJHL announced Dauphin had made a trade (August 6th – 9:47am –  The Dauphin Kings have acquired D-man Jackson Robinson (95) from Kirkland Lake Gold Miners of the NOJHL for future considerations), the Kings announced two other additions. Below is Robinson who spent some time with the Steinbach Pistons. He’s another big player, standing at 6’1, 185 pounds.

Along with Robinson the Kings have recruited 6’5, 190 pound forward Dominik Lavergne (97) from Ottawa. Lavergne played one contest with the RBC Cup runner up Carleton Place Canadians last season, he spent most of the year with Ottawa West Golden Knights in the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League.

Finally, the Kings bring in another 20 year old in forward Dejon Marsh who comes to Dauphin from Colorado. Ironically enough (You’ll hear more in the interview below) Marsh skates with former King Ben Hull in the off season and Hull told Marsh about Dauphin and connection was made.

Kings Head Coach and General Manager Marlin Murray talks about the three transactions above, but first touches on a busy Thursday afternoon…

Here’s the article from the three moves via the Dauphin Kings…

In less than a month, the Dauphin Kings staff and scouts will have their work cut out for them at this year’s Main Camp.  The Dauphin Kings are looking to rebound this season after an “average” year last season.  Kings Gm and Head coach comments on a busy summer, “We were fairly active.  A couple of trades, a lot of recruitment and we are happy with the additions we have added.  It should be a very competitive camp.”The Kings recent additions see the Kings add more size to their lineup.  “Last year we were easy to play against most nights.  In many nights we were the less aggressive and undersized hockey club and it’s tough to win in the MJHL when you get off the bus and realize it’s an uphill battle right from the start.  Size is one thing, but you have to be able to play the game as well”, comments Murray.

The Kings have recruited 6’5, 190 pound forward Dominik Lavergne from Ottawa, Ont.  Lavergne will bring a team oriented attitude to the Kings as well as his big frame.  “Dom is an interesting piece for an eighteen year old.  He wants to win and get better daily.  For a big kid he has good hands and will put the puck in the net as well”, Murray.  Lavergne spent most of last season playing Junior B as a seventeen year old and also had a couple of call ups from the power house Carleton Place Canadians who have finished runner up at the RBC Cup in back to back seasons.

Also on the recruitment list is twenty year old Dejon Marsh.  Marsh, a 5’9, 185 pound forward will be admired by his work ethic and hard to play against demeanor .Last year he played for the Connecticut Oilers who won a Championship in the EHL.  Marsh is a versatile forward that can play all three positions but prefers right wing being a right handed shot.  The Thornton, Colorado native is known for his work ethic and two way style. “Dejon can play in a lot of situations.  He looks after his own end very well and attacks on the offense side with his excellent shot”, states Murray.

Also, the Kings acquired Defenceman Jackson Robinson from the Kirkland Lake Miners for future considerations.  Robinson, 20, will be no stranger to the MJHL.  Robinson spent time with the Steinbach Pistons last season before being moved to Kirkland Lake because of an abundance of talent on the Pistons blue line.  The 6’3 202 pound right defenceman will give the Kings some depth on the back end.  “I reached out to Paul Dyck (GM and HC of the Steinbach Pistons) and asked about him.  Paul said he was a very good kid, committed, and extremely hard working.  We feel he will give us size back there and help kill penalties.” – Murray.

The Kings have another “significant move” to announce later today or tomorrow.  After that move Murray states he doesn’t see the team making any more moves before camp, “As of now, we are happy where we are at and the additions that we have made.  We feel we added some speed, size and skill over the summer months.  The character and commitment of these players will be big for us.  You mix that into the equation with the young local talent we have upcoming and it’s an exciting time for our club.  We’ll see how it all plays out!”

Dauphin Kings Main camp will be held at the Credit Union Place Sept 3-6.  The JOFO Cup intra-squad game will be Sunday Sept 6th at 7:00 pm.

Lapointe & Bredahl Out

lp

Also on Thursday the Kings moved two of their top scorers last season in Dylan Bredahl and Mathieu Lapointe.

Although, from a numbers standpoint, it is a tough loss for the Kings. The move makes room for other players coming into the picture, like locals Greening, Derkach and Chartrand.

August 6th – 1:10pm – The Dauphin Kings have traded forwards Mathieu Lapointe (96) and Dylan Bredahl (95) to the Amherst Ramblers of MHL for forward Stephen Sisco (96) & future considerations.

Coming to the Kings is another 19 year old in Stephen Sisco who spent last year in Amherst and St. Stephen County where he racked up 18 points in 40 contests. Sisco is yet another big player the Kings have added to their mix this summer. Their average height is now over six feet and makes them much more tough to play against.
