The Kings red 3rd jerseys this season will feature the Dauphin Fire Department Logo on the front of the jersey. The Kings authentic logo will be on both shoulders of the special edition jersey.
The Dauphin Kings organization is honoring the Dauphin Fire Department and their past and present members in recognition of extraordinary services the City of Dauphin and surrounding areas.
GM and Head Coach Marlin Murray discusses how the jersey came to fruition, “I was driving by the Fire Hall one day and seen the firefighters just getting back from a call. They looked exhausted. I thought to myself, we are so lucky to have them in our community. By the time I drove 4 blocks to my house, I thought the Kings could honor them with this jersey. From there, we took the idea to the executive. They really liked the idea. After the meeting I reached out to Cam Abrey, the Fire Chief and set up a meeting with him and discussed the idea. He liked it as well. Once everyone agreed with the idea Dave Campbell, Owner of Parkland Source for Source and long-time King sponsor and I sat down and went over different scenarios and come up with this jersey. We wanted to keep the Kings color scheme but also implement their logo in it. We really like how it turned out”.
The Dauphin Kings will also be recognizing different members of the Dauphin Fire Department throughout the course of the season by having them drop the ceremonial puck drop before specific games.
The Kings organization would like to thank North of 51/Rogers wireless for sponsoring the jerseys. The jerseys will be auctioned off at the conclusion of the 2015-2016 season. Stay tuned for more details and game dates in which the jerseys will be worn!
