As the Dauphin Kings get set to host main camp this weekend at Credit Union Place, the team is excited to announce they have acquired Erik Larsen.
Larsen comes to Dauphin after playing the past three seasons with Northern Lakes High School in Minnesota. Last year, he scored three times and added 19 assists in 22 games to average a point-per-game.
Andy Kubas is Dauphin’s USA scout and he says Larsen is a great addition.
“He’s a big right defenceman that works really hard and moves the puck well,” said Kubas. “He was a part of a team that went really far in Minnesota and he was the team’s captain.”
Kubas also said Erik has a really good first outlet pass and he sees the ice well. As it is for most players, the jump up to junior hockey certainly isn’t an easy one. Coming in at 6’1″ and 170 pounds, Kubas said Larsen’s ready to go.
“He is ready to play at this level. He made an all-star team in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area and they made the national championship,” ended Kubas. “He’s ready to go, there’s no doubt about that.”
The Kings would like to welcome Erik and the entire Larsen family to the organization.
In other news, Dauphin has acquired Ethan Williment from the Selkirk Steelers in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2022 MJHL Draft.
