Back In Town

October 6, 2015

back

The Dauphin Kings return to Credit Union Place for the first time since their home opener when they entertain the Waywayseecappo Wolverines tonight at 7:00pm.

The return will be short-lived as the club goes back on the road this weekend for two straight. They’ll be in Selkirk on Friday (On CKDM) then in Wayway on Saturday.

Yes, I know. By the time this week is completed the Dauphin Kings will have played the Waywayseecappo Wolverines three times so far this season. It’ll be four if you include the lone exhibition game the two teams played against each other. After Saturday Dauphin won’t see Wayway again until the middle of November. Dauphin owns the season series right now after winning the first meeting between the two groups.

Tonight COULD be the first chance for fans to see new goalie Jarrod Schamerhorn in action. Schamerhorn joined the Kings on the weekend at the MJHL Showcase. Dauphin was hoping to get him between the pipes for one of the two games, but due to unforeseen circumstances Schamerhorn didn’t make it to the rink on time Saturday evening. Below is more on the 20 year old goaltender.

Tune in to tonight’s contest on FASTHockey. I’ll have the call starting at 7:00pm with puck drop at Credit Union Place. If you can’t tune in then follow me on Twitter for FREE updates (@ChristianCKDM)!

Team Stats

Kings 2-3-0: Dauphin went 2-1-0 last week. After a disappointing effort on Friday they put together a really good game on Saturday night against the Winnipeg Blues. At one point the Kings led Saturday’s contest 5-3, but had to deal with a little bit of adversity when the Blues scored two quick goals to come back and tie things up at five. Dauphin didn’t break and ended up winning the game in overtime. A good confidence booster in my opinion. Over the next few weeks the schedule is not as intense as it could be for the Kings. They’ll play basically an average of two games every seven days starting next week. That means the team will have lots of time for practice, and as Marlin Murray mentioned on the Post Game Show Saturday, they need to work on their Special Teams. The Kings Power Play is currently tenth in the MJHL at 8.00% while their Penalty Kill rests in ninth spot at 79.17%. Leading Dauphin in points is David Brumm (3G, 3A), after five points last week he’s now up to six total.

Wolverines 1-3-1: The Waywayseecappo Wolverines grabbed their first win of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League season Sunday when they beat the reeling Neepawa Natives 5-3. Wayway looked great in their opening game at the MJHL Showcase over the weekend. I was in attendance Thursday to watch them build up a 3-1 advantage, only to give it all back to the Selkirk Steelers in the third period. Selkirk went on to win the tilt in overtime. Wayway then lost their next game the following evening, 4-1 to the Steinbach Pistons. Despite the record, the Wolverines Special Teams aren’t too shabby. They’re fifth in the MJHL on the Power Play (20.83%) and sixth on the Penalty Kill (81.48%). So far this season Wayway is the fourth most penalized team in the league. Leading the Wolves in scoring is Johl Swedlo (2G, 4A), he has six points.
