Sam Boldt started his season in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League with the Weyburn Red Wings where he was an integral part of the club.
He joined Weyburn after playing 12 games to start the season with Camrose last season and then he finished the year in the British Columbia Hockey League where he played 25 games with the Merritt Centennials.
Then on January 10, 2023, Sam was acquired by the Dauphin Kings on trade deadline day. Sam reported to Dauphin on Tuesday and played his first game with his new team on Wednesday and it was a solid debut as he helped the club pick up a 4-3 win over Swan Valley.
Growing up in Regina, Sam is pleased to be with Dauphin.
“I’ve had a good couple of days here so far,” said Boldt. “I’m really enjoying it, we have a very strong team that plays with a lot of pace, I’m excited to be here.”
As Dauphin enjoys a weekend off from game action, Boldt has high expectations from himself and he’s looking forward to contributing to a team that is currently in second place in the West Division.
Boldt will play his second game with Dauphin on Tuesday when the team makes their way to OCN to play the Blizzard in another big West Division tilt.
