The Dauphin Kings opened up 2016 on a high note with a 6-2 victory over the OCN Blizzard Sunday night.

The game was just the tip of the iceberg though, as the month of January will only get busier for the MJHL club.

This week the Kings have two more games, a rare mid week trip to the Winnipeg area.

On Thursday they’ll face the Blues in Winnipeg for the final time this season. You can hear the tilt on 730 CKDM, the Parkland Source for Sports Pre Game Show begins at 6:45pm.

The next night the Kings head a little north to take on the Steelers in Selkirk. The game will be a key one when it comes to battles in the standings. Coming into this week Dauphin is just two points behind the Steelers for eighth in the standings with three games in hand. Puck drop Friday in Selkirk is 7:30pm. The tilt can also be heard on 730 CKDM with the Pre Game Show at 7:15pm.

The Dauphin Kings’ fourth line picked up where they left off before the Christmas break. One of those three players is Thomas Lenchyshyn, who had two points against his former team Sunday in the Kings’ 6-2 win against the OCN Blizzard at Credit Union Place. The former Eastman Select now has four points in his last four games (2G, 2A). Lenchyshyn opened the scoring for the Kings Sunday night against OCN.

1. Graeme Hore
