Former King To Play For Another Crown

A was Jayden Jubenvill is set to play for another championship.

The Gilbert Plains star, who won a championship with the Dauphin Kings two seasons ago, has advanced to the league final in the United States Hockey League (USHL) with the Dubuque Fighting Saints.

The USHL is one of the top junior leagues in the world and is one of the most direct paths to NCAA Division 1 hockey, which is the case for Jayden as he will join the University of North Dakota Fighting Hawks next season.

Jubenvill is in his second season with Dubuque. The team downed Muskegon on Thursday night, 4-0, to advance to the league final in a three-game sweep. Following a 17-point regular season, Jubenvill stepped up his game in the playoffs offensively with three goals and two assists across seven games.

Jayden and the rest of the Fighting Saints will now go up against either Fargo or Sioux City in the Clark Cup Final.

Dauphin Journey:

Jayden played just one season with the Kings, but it was a memorable one.

Jubenvill played 53 regular season games with the Kings in the 2021-22 season as Dauphin won 41 of their 54 regular season games in winning the West Division regular season crown.

After beating Swan Valley in the first round, Dauphin dispatched Winkler in five games. The Kings then capped off an incredible playoff journey as they beat the Steinbach Pistons in a thrilling seven-game series.

In a year that Jayden was named to the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s (MJHL) all-rookie team, the star from Gilbert Plains then went on to help Dauphin advance to the national semi-final.
