Getting Away

October 27, 2015

bye

The Dauphin Kings hit the road to face the Selkirk Steelers tonight as their schedule for the month of October comes to an end.

A positive for the Kings this month has been their play as the away team, they’re 3-1-0 as the visitors in October. Their lone loss this month? A 9-7 decision in Selkirk to the Steelers on October 9th.

This is the only game of the week for Dauphin as their schedule begins to hit a dead zone. After tonight the Kings do not play again until next Wednesday when they visit the Portage Terriers. That contest marks the start of four games in seven nights.

No broadcast tonight, but you can follow me for lots of updates on this evening’s affair. Opening face off is pegged for 7:30pm, follow me on Twitter (@ChristianCKDM)!

Team Stats

Kings 6-6-0: After a loss on Saturday the Dauphin Kings are still looking for some consistency after failing to string together a couple wins. That seems to be the case for the Kings so far this season, they just can’t seem to spark a long winning streak. Granted, Dauphin is once again battling the injury bug. The loss of D-man Hayden Pierce to an upper body injury saw the Kings acquire 18 year old blueliner Oliver Lester from the AJHL’s Calgary Mustangs. It is unclear right now if Lester will be in the lineup tonight, stay tuned for that later. After the Special Teams contest on Saturday Dauphin’s Power Play moved up to eighth in the MJHL at 17.39%. Their Penalty Kill, however, dropped down to 77.19% which is seventh in the league. Kirklan Lycar (10G, 4A) leads the Kings in points coming into tonight, he has 14.

NEAT TREATS

Kirklan Lycar is on a 2 game point streak (3G, 1A).

Matthew Greening is on a 2 game point streak (2G, 0A).

Drake Bodie is on a 2 game point streak (0G, 2A).

Brandon Young is on a 2 game point streak (0G, 2A).

Steelers 5-5-0: The Selkirk Steelers are kind of in the same spot as the Dauphin Kings, minus two games. Selkirk just can’t seem to getting rolling in the right direction. They had won four of five, then lost two straight and are now coming off a 3-2 victory over the Swan Valley Stampeders last week. The Steelers are coming off the same type of schedule the Kings are going into. This is their first game in a week, that win over Swan Valley came last Tuesday. This is game two of a three game home stand for the Steelers, they’re 4-2-0 at the Selkirk Rec Complex this season. For Special Teams the Steelers’ Power Play is third in the MJHL at 25% while their Penalty Kill is sixth at 78.72%. Veteran forwards Ty Kraus (6G, 6A) and Taylor Fisher (5G, 7A) lead the team in scoring with 12 points.
