Parkland Prowess

January 19, 2016


The Dauphin Kings return to Credit Union Place for a key contest when it comes to the Manitoba Junior Hockey League standings, tonight they’ll square off with the Swan Valley Stampeders.

Both teams are looking to get out of losing skids. Dauphin has lost their last three while Swan Valley has come up short in two straight games.

The Stampeders have taken both contests between the two clubs so far this season. Both were one goal games with Swan winning 5-4 in OT in Dauphin and 4-3 at home. Those two games were back-to-back last month.

NEAT NEWS: The Kings have called up 16 year old forward Riese Gaber from the Manitoba AAA Midget Hockey League’s Parkland Rangers for tonight’s game. The Gilbert Plains product is 7th in league scoring with 38 points (13G, 25A).

SIDE TREAT: The Manitoba AAA Midget Hockey League named their All Star teams recently. Three Dauphin Kings prospects made it to the First All Star Team. Parkland Rangers FW Riese Gaber, Eastman Selects FW Brad Goethals and Eastman Selects D-man Kayle Tosh.

Opening face off tonight is 7:00pm at Credit Union Place. If you can’t watch the game on FASTHockey then follow me on Twitter (@ChristianCKDM) for updates!



Team Stats

Kings 15-23-2 (9th): The Dauphin Kings will look to continue their success at Credit Union Place tonight. They’ve won four straight on home ice, a much different flip considering the club has lost 10 straight on the road. It’ll be interesting to see how Dauphin’s Power Play goes tonight. The club’s man advantage has been hot and has now scored six times in the last six games. It’s a notable stat because Dauphin scored against some of the better Penalty Kill units in the MJHL. With the recent success Dauphin’s man advantage is up to 15.18% which is 9th in the league. On the Penalty Kill the Kings are 8th at 77.56%. Kirklan Lycar (16G, 17A) continues to lead Dauphin in points with 33. Since the start of December the Kings are 5-2-1 at Credit Union Place.


Tyler Garrioch is on a 4 game point streak (2G, 6A).


Stampeders 18-19-5 (6th): The locally powered Swan Valley Stampeders come in to Dauphin with two straight losses under their belts. At the start of 2016 Swan Valley was looking solid after rattling off four straight wins. The Stampeders are 6th in the standings, meaning if the playoffs began today they’d avoid the survivor series and play the third place Winkler Flyers in the first round. Swan Valley finished in 6th last year, but were disposed in four straight games by the Winnipeg Blues in the first round of playoffs. The Stampeders’ Special Teams are average. Coming into tonight they’re 8th on the Power Play at 18.09% and 5th on the Penalty Kill at 79.62%. Swan Valley’s top two scorers are from Swan River, Josh Tripp (19G, 16A) leads the team with 35 points while Cody Ellingson (10G, 23A) isn’t far behind with 33. The Stampeders are 4-1-0 on the road since the start of December.
