Hello!

My name is Christian Laughland and I am the voice of the Dauphin Kings of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League and Sports Director at 730 CKDM Radio in Dauphin Manitoba. (Resume Below)

I’m originally from Vancouver British Columbia and I have spent many years playing and watching hockey so I feel I have a good grip on the game and what goes on inside and out. I completed my Broadcasting Diploma at Columbia Academy, which included an internship at a major Sports Department in Vancouver.

If I’m not doing a Dauphin Kings Broadcast, I will be keeping you up to date on the team through twitter, so follow me @ChristianCKDM for up to the second Dauphin Kings info throughout the Hockey Season.

The opinions on this blog may not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Dauphin Kings Hockey Club or 730 CKDM. Thanks for visiting!

        Brett Klassen was traded to the Flyers Saturday night. Our older son Angus played for the Kings for three years and we are disappointed that Brett will not have a chance to play for a great organization. But that is the way Junior hockey goes. We followed your site every day and wanted to let you know that you are doing an excellent job and to keep this site going. We will be following the Pride. The Klassens

        Thank you very much. Means a lot when I know I’m helping parents keep track of their kids. I’m wishing all the best for Brett!

    Add the 11th best goal – a combination of two key goals – down 3-1 in Western Canada Cup and who brings the team back from the brink – the unsung ones – the fourth liners doing their job by being there when needed. I may be a little biased as my nephew scored the second goal but the bottom half of last years roster of players all seem to be doing real well this year. Sure feel for Coach Murray because you can never play everyone as much as you’ld like especially gearing up to host the WCP. Good luck the rest of 2015.

    • December 25, 2014 10:21 am

      I agree! But that line in my opinion played well the entire playoffs WCC and RBC. Those two goals were just one of many bright spots for them during the run.

    Miss this game so much this has to be the best game i’ve watched since i started watching MJHL Hockey.

    Christian,
    Can you explain how the Portage player can drop his gloves – possibly even before Cody Nelson – get in a lot of punches and come away with a double minor??? I think it makes the league look like it is a little mixed up in its rules ??? Your thoughts????? And yes I do think his hit on the Dauphin player was clean.

      It’s funny that you bring it up because we actually discussed it on the Post Game Show yesterday. I had never seen a penalty situation like that before where it ended up being a three minute long Power Play. According to Murray there shouldn’t have been an instigator, both players should have just got fighting penalties and been tossed from the game since Alexander dropped the gloves first. I thought the hit was clean as well. Murray said after the game that Nelson said he never had the intent of fighting, he just wanted to step in for a younger player that got hit. Apparently Alexander turned and dropped the gloves and the fight happened. Four minutes for roughing was just stupid, but nothing we can do about it now.

        Christian,
        What is your take on Portage’s RBC Cup chances – I know it is early but you saw last years cup and you’ve seen them this season – what do you think???
        Ron C

      • January 29, 2015 2:50 pm

        From what I’ve seen so far I think it would be a huge disappointment if Portage didn’t make it to the semi finals. I think their team is good enough to at least make it to one of those two games. Beyond that it’s tough to say because it’s just one game and anything could happen. It’ll be interesting to see what happens in BC and Alberta this year. Fort Mac is struggling and they’re hosting the WCC, Spruce Grove might make it through this time around. All depends on the competition that makes it into the RBC and how healthy they are.

    Pretty good “politically correct” answer so here’s my real question – are they fast enough???

    • February 4, 2015 9:52 pm

      Every game I’ve seen them play against the Kings they haven’t looked like they are. Maybe they’ll find another gear for the playoffs.

    Track suit going to “Hockey Hall of Shame” – just kidding – I wish all the players the best of luck on their fresh starts ( but I kind of think Chevy got the best of the deal ).

    Hello Christian,
    So you are doing colour at 2015 RBC – as the Aussies say “good on you mate” – a plum of a job !!!! I think they made a smart choice. Hope to see you there I might even be able to pull a hoodie out of the hat – just for you !!!!!

      Hahaha yes! Thanks very much! Hope to see you there, I’ll be watching for you!

    Christian – sorry I got a couple of votes in for you then kind of missed the end – sorry you didn’t win. Great job anyway – are you going to WCC??? Ron C

    • February 21, 2016 11:55 pm

      No worries Ron!

      As of right now I’m unsure if I’m going to the WCC. Trying to get back into the RBC Cup again though!

      Are you going to Estevan?
