Ashton Clark is the final piece to the line that includes Graeme Hore and Keaton Leininger. Last week the three combined for seven points in Dauphin’s victory over the Terriers. Clark had a goal and two assists.
Clark’s play continued to be strong in Friday night’s tilt at Credit Union Place. He did not get any points but was able to generate multiple scoring chances, not only on the rush but even with his strong back check as well.
The Aberdeen, Saskatchewan forward remains atop the Kings in scoring with 10 goals and seven assists for 17 points this season.
DAUPHIN, MB – It was a successful week for the Dauphin Kings. The club gained three of a possible four points in two contests against the Portage Terriers.
The points helped move Dauphin closer towards a playoff position with the month of December just over a week away.
On Wednesday last week the Kings snagged their first road victory of the season, beating the Terriers in Portage 4-2. On Friday Dauphin played well and arguably deserved a better fate, but fell 3-2 in overtime to the Terriers at Credit Union Place.
Now the Kings get set for a three game week and it all starts on Tuesday when they welcome the Waywayseecappo Wolverines to town. Dauphin will be looking for revenge after falling to the Wolverines in Wayway earlier this season. Tuesday’s game sponsor is PISTON RING in Dauphin!
After Tuesday the Kings hit the road for a weekend excursion in Winnipeg. First the club matches up with the Blues on Friday (7:00pm) start. Then they’ll head a little north to skate with the Selkirk Steelers on Saturday (7:30pm).
Be sure to check back here throughout the week for updates!
