Last Meeting

January 28, 2016

The Dauphin Kings will look to bounce back from a 4-2 loss to the Swan Valley Stampeders tonight when they visit the Waywayseecappo Wolverines for the final time this season.

It’s a big game when it comes to the MJHL standings. Wayway is six points back of Dauphin for 9th place, but the Kings do have a game in hand. If you’re looking at it from a Waywayseecappo perspective the tilt is very important if the club wants to catch Dauphin for 9th or any other teams in front of them for that matter. For Dauphin a win would separate them more from the Wolverines heading into the final month of the regular season.

The Kings have won every game against Wayway this season (5), including one exhibition game in September. Most recently Dauphin beat the Wolverines 9-3 at Credit Union Place earlier this month.

No broadcast tonight, but you can follow me on Twtter (@ChristianCKDM) for updates during the game. Opening face off in Waywayseecappo is pegged for 7:30pm. Tonight’s contest is the only one in the MJHL.

Wolverines 12-29-4 (10th): It’s a very important game tonight for the Waywayseecappo Wolverines. A victory would get them within four points of the Kings for 9th place.

Twenty year old Johl Swedlo (18G, 16A) leads the Wolverines in points with 34.
