Kings back on top

The Dauphin Kings are back in first place in the league standings.

Following a 1-0 win on Friday, Dauphin hammered the Blues on Saturday night as they downed them, 6-0, in front of a great crowd at Credit Union Place.

It took less than three minutes for Dauphin to open the scoring as Jeriah Shantz scored the ‘Teddy Bear Toss’ goal as hundreds of teddy bears were flooded onto the ice.

Shantz also scored another goal in the second while Kaden Bryant, Luke Morris and Parker Fofonoff found the back of the net as Dauphin led 5-0 after 40 minutes of play.

In the third, Brayden Dube scored his 14th of the season as the Kings skated off with another win.

Carson Cherepak was solid again, making 17 saves.

Next up for the team is a home-and-home against Selkirk, starting next Friday in Selkirk.
