Where They Started

February 28, 2016

The Dauphin Kings hosted the Neepawa Natives for their first regular season home game, and now they’ll entertain them for their last tonight at Credit Union Place.

Since game one of the campaign things have changed a lot for both clubs. The first week of the season the Neepawa Natives were an Honourable Mention on the CJHL Top 20. Now the club is at the bottom of the league and has not made it to the playoffs since 2010.

The Kings, meanwhile, are locked into ninth place in the standings and are waiting to find out their opponent for the survivor series which begins a week from tonight.

Watch this evening’s affair on FASTHockey, opening face off is pegged for 7:00pm. If you can’t watch then follow me on Twitter (@ChristianCKDM) for updates!

SIDE TREAT:

Tonight Dauphin will also hand out their year end awards. You can watch online to see who the winners are. If you can’t watch online then check my recap of this evening’s game for the results!

Team Stats

Kings 18-33-5 (9th): The Dauphin Kings will try to extend their point streak tonight to four games. Despite losing two of their last three Dauphin has actually played quite well and that’s something nice to see with the playoffs just around the corner. Coming into this evening Dauphin’s Power Play is up to 16.33% which is 9th in the MJHL. Their Penalty Kill is also 9th at 74.74%. The battle for first in points continues for the Kings, Kirklan Lycar (23G, 28A) leads the way with 51 but Tyler Garrioch (14G, 34A) is just three back.

NEAT TREATS

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

Trevor Kavanaugh is on a 3 game point streak (3G, 1A).

Landon Plett is on a 3 game point streak (1G, 3A).

Natives 12-43-2 (11th): Even though they’ll once again finish the regular season at the bottom of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League standings, the Neepawa Natives were in the playoff race for pretty much the entire season. The club was only recently mathematically eliminated from the post season picture with their 7-2 loss to Steinbach last night. Neepawa’s Special Teams sit in the basement of the MJHL. Their Power Play is moving along at 11.39% while their Penalty Kill is at 73.56%. Twenty year old forward Kyle McDonald (20G, 18A) is atop the Naties in scoring with 38 points.
