Dauphin Kings Three ★’s Of The Week

September 28, 2015

3-stars-banner4039

The Dauphin Kings are through the first weekend of the MJHL regular season and are looking to regroup after a weekend that saw them fall twice to the Neepawa Natives.

Despite no points in the standings, there are a number of positives the Kings can take from their first weekend of meaningful games. The biggest was that they controlled the play against the Neepawa Natives for probably four out of the six periods over the weekend. They just happened to run into a hot goaltender.

As time continues to tick Dauphin is slowly getting healthier. As mentioned on the Parkland Source for Sports Post Game Show Saturday night, the Kings are hoping to get forwards Stephen Sisco and Romano Morrison back into the fold this week. As well D-man Kyle Bird, who’s been injured since camp, is getting better and closer to game action.

This week the Kings have three contests. First they’ll visit the Waywayseecappo Wolverines on Tuesday. That affair can be heard on 730 CKDM, the Pre Game Show kicks off at 7:15pm, opening face off is 7:30pm. After Tuesday Dauphin gets set for the MJHL Showcase Weekend. Their first game is an early one on Friday, they’ll meet the Winkler Flyers at 4:00pm. Then on Saturday a battle with the Winnipeg Blues goes down at 6:00pm. Listen to Saturday’s contest on 730 CKDM.

3. Chance Thomas

Chance Thomas scored the first goal of the Dauphin Kings season on Friday (Below) and carried over his strong play from the pre season. He was mixed with a number of linemates as the team continues to wait for the return of Romano Morrison. Thomas also had good chemistry with Dauphin’s Matthew Greening during exhibition and the first game of the season.

2. Rory Davidson

Solid on the Penalty Kill and excellent speed helped Rory Davidson pick up a goal in Dauphin’s home opener on Friday (Below). At the time the goal was a big one, shorthanded and tying up the game at two in the second period. Davidson kept the ball rolling into Saturday in Neepawa where he had multiple opportunities at the Yellowhead Arena.

1. Kirklan Lycar

Kirklan Lycar probably could of had anywhere from three to six goals over the weekend, but he’ll have to settle with two this time around. Lycar snagged both his goals in Neepawa, both were on the Power Play. The night before in Dauphin he had at least three great chances to put the puck in the net, add a couple more the next night in Neepawa. The line of Lycar, Drake Bodie and David Brumm was Dauphin’s top unit over the first weekend of the campaign for sure.
