Another local hero this week was Daniel Chartrand. The Dauphin product had three goals and three assists for the Kings. All of those six points came in the final three games of the week and two of the three were multi point efforts.
With the sudden surge in Chartrand’s game the forward is now third on the Kings in scoring with 23 points (9G, 14A).
Chartrand has points in 10 of his last 14 games played and should be a consideration for player of the week in the MJHL.
DAUPHIN, MB – The Dauphin Kings are officially into their Christmas break, and the club is into it on a high following two straight wins this past weekend.
