Spirited Affair

September 19, 2015

The Dauphin Kings and Virden Oil Capitals played arguably the most entertaining game of their pre seasons Saturday with the Oil Capitals skating to a 4-3 shootout victory.

It was a contest that had all sorts of fun stuff going on. From shenanigans after the whistle, pretty goals, bad penalty calls and great speed. Sadly the two clubs won’t meet again until late Novemeber.

The Kings looked much better this time around then Friday night at Credit Union Place. Their game was more consistant and there were a lot of good things on the ice. Players that had a heck of a game, in my opinion, included Rory Davidson, Connor Shaw and Drake Bodie. There were many others that looked solid.

When everything was said and done Virden outshot Dauphin 42-32 and had six more power plays, finishing the night 2 for 7. Dauphin was 0 for 1.

The brutal call of the night came to Dauphin’s Shaq Houle, who recieved a five minute major for fighting and a game misconduct when he didn’t even drop the gloves. He also recieved a few stitches.

Scorers on the night for the Kings in order were Logan Nelson, Rory Davidson and Drake Bodie.

So ends Dauphin’s pre season. The Kings end it with a record of 4-1-2. Now comes the hard part, the decisions at both forward and defence. The Kings currently have 28 players, they’ll try to get down to 25 or less by the end of next week.

Dauphin’s home opener goes this Friday at Credit Union Place. The Neepawa Natives will be in town, puck drop is 7:00pm. I’ll have more later this week.
