Kings lock up goaltender

Ahead of two big West Division games for the Dauphin Kings this weekend, the organization is pleased to announce that Austin Seibel has committed to join the team next season.

From Coldstream, B.C., the 17-year-old is currently playing with the North Okanagan Knights of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League and he has been impressive.

In 25 games, Seibel has won 12 games with a 3.19 goals-against average to go along with a solid .921 save percentage. Of goalies that have played at least 20 games in the KIJHL, only five of them have a superior save percentage compared to Austin’s.

Doug Hedley had this to say about Austin joining the organization.

“Austin plays a quiet game and he is having a great year with the Knights,” said Hedley. “He’s a great kid with a high compete level. We’re looking forward to working with Austin.”

Prior to joining the Knights, Austin spent the previous season with Prairie Hockey Academy U17.
