DAUPHIN, MB - Following two losses on the road last week the Dauphin Kings will return to Credit Union Place this week for the first time since the middle of October.
In case you missed it last week the Kings lost 3-1 to the Winkler Flyers on Friday and then came up short in a 4-1 loss to the Selkirk Steelers on Saturday. Bad starts were the causes of both losses.
This week the Kings have two games. It starts on Friday when the club welcomes the Winkler Flyers to Credit Union Place. It’ll be the third meeting of the young season between the two teams. The game is sponsored by Dauphin’s Countryfest and will give fans a chance to win a number of great prizes, including two VIP passes to this years event along with reserved camping, two Sunday day passes AND Corb Lund tickets as well. So be sure to come out and enter!
On Saturday the Kings will head north to Swan River for a rare afternoon affair. Game time is 2:00pm at the Centennial Arena!

Another point this past weekend for Winnipeg forward Brendan Arnold.
The 17 year old has played well all season but his number have been growing since his efforts last weekend when the Kings took the Pistons to overtime two times in Steinbach.
The former Winnipeg Wild now has four points (1G, 3A) in his last five games for the Kings and will look for more this week.
Despite the Dauphin Kings losing both their games this weekend Riese Gaber continues to go to work.
The forward from Gilbert Plains, Manitoba, which is just 15 minutes west from Dauphin, has points (3G, 3A) in five straight games.
Gaber and his “Paper Boys” line that includes Brendan Arnold and Grady Hobbs has combined for 11 points in the last five games.
Gaber is the leading rookie scorer on the Kings right now, through 11 contests he has eight points.
If you’ve been to a Dauphin Kings game this season you’ve probably noticed Grady Hobbs at least once.
The 16 year old continues to be one of Dauphin’s hardest working players night in and night out. Even though he doesn’t have any goals on the season just yet, he’s getting chances. That was evident in the games this weekend for the Kings. Hobbs hit a cross bar in Winkler and had a couple chances in Selkirk.
The Deloraine, Manitoba product has two assists so far this season, but don’t be surprised if a few goals are added to his points totals sooner rather than later.
