Calder makes top 3, Jaquet and Bryant join

Colby Jaquet was a big reason why the Dauphin Kings completed one of if not the most dramatic comebacks in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League this season and because of it, he’s the first star in the Parkland Source for Sports Three Stars of the Week.

Down 4-1 against the Virden Oil Capitals with 2:50 left in the third period on Friday, Jaquet brought Dauphin within two goals before Owen Wareham brought the Kings within a goal. Then just before the buzzer went off, Jaquet found the back of the net once again as Dauphin forced overtime.

Kaden Bryant then sealed the game just more than a minute in.

The former Selkirk Steeler is having a career year with Dauphin, scoring 10 times already and adding 28 assists.

Second Star:

Acquired in a blockbuster at the trade deadline, Logan Calder was very excited to come to Dauphin and now with a few games under his belt with his new team, the 21-year-old is starting to produce offensively, something he did on a consistent basis with Portage.

Over the last three games, Calder heated up setting up goals as he notched four assists, his first four with the team. Although Calder has yet to score with the team, you get the sense that his first will happen sooner rather than later.

The Portage la Prairie native knows how to win a championship and he’s a proven leader and a player that Dauphin Kings fans should be very excited about.

Third Star:

Kaden Bryant is slowly going about his business and he’s coming up clutch at huge moments when the puck gets to his stick. On Friday night as mentioned above, the former Forward of the Year in the Manitoba AAA U18 Hockey League scored the game-winner.

Kaden now has 23 goals, the second-most in the league, only behind Braden Fischer and Nathan Driver who are both Oil Capitals.

The 20-year-old now has three game-winning goals this season and just in case you missed Friday’s marker, here it is.

Dauphin is back on the ice Wednesday when they head to Swan River to play the Stampeders.
