Weekend Wrap

December 13, 2015


The Dauphin Kings will meet the Winkler Flyers for the third time this season tonight when the two clubs square off at Credit Union Place.

Dauphin is looking to snap a four game losing skid while Winkler is going for a sweep of a three game in three night road swing. They beat OCN (3-2) on Friday and Swan Valley (4-3) on Saturday.

It’s the Kings third to last game before the Christmas break. They’ll take part in just two games next week.

Watch tonight’s contest on FASTHockey, opening face off is 7:00pm. If you can’t tune in then just follow me on Twitter (@ChristianCKDM) for updates!



Team Stats

Kings 11-17-2: It’s a tough way to end the month of December, playing four games against two of the top teams in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League, but the Dauphin Kings will have to battle through as they inch closer to the break. The goal remains the same for the Kings as games go on: Play a full 60 minute effort, and you’ll likely have a shot at winning against any team. In two games the Kings played well and not so well against the Flyers. They dropped a 3-0 decision at the MJHL Showcase in October, then fell 4-1 in November in Winkler. The loss in Winkler was one of the Kings’ better outings this season. Special Teams stats for Dauphin coming in look like this… They’re 9th in the MJHL on the Power Play (15.54%) while their Penalty Kill is 7th (77.56%). Kirklan Lycar (13G, 12A) and Matthew Greening (7G, 18A) lead Dauphin points with 25. With Saturday’s loss to Virden the Kings are now 5-7-2 at Credit Union Place this season.


Flyers 24-5-2: As mentioned Winkler is wrapping up a three game in three night stretch with wins over OCN and Swan so far. Lots of fans will be out tonight to see a couple kids from Gilbert Plains in D-man Tyler Jubenvill (3G, 10A) and FW Coltyn Bates (5G, 13A), both are up and coming rookies in the MJHL. When it comes to the Flyers’ Special Teams it’s the same case for another night for the Dauphin Kings. Don’t give them too many chances. Winkler’s Power Play is 2nd in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League at 28.03% while their Penalty Kill is 1st at 87.37%. No surprise that the Flyers are led in scoring by Tristan Keck (19G, 25A), he has 44 points which is 3rd in the league. Winkler is 10-3-0 as the away team this season.
