DAUPHIN, MB - The Dauphin Kings have added another top end player to their arsenal for the upcoming Manitoba Junior Hockey League season.
Forward Austin Lamotte (01) committed to the club earlier this week. He stands at 5'8 and is 150 pounds.
The Debden product comes to the Kings from Midget AAA in Saskatachewan where he put up 45 points (15G, 30A) in 40 games in 2017-18 and 39 points (11G, 28A) in 44 affairs in 2016-17 with the Prince Albert Mintos. He played five games in the AJHL last season with the Lloydminster Bobcats, notching a goal and three assists in that span.
"Dauphin is a great organization and Doug has been excellent so far. My parents also think it'll be an awesome place to play and they've already set me up with a billet. It's great" says Lamotte.
Back in February Lamotte was able to spend some time in Dauphin.
"It's a very professionally ran team. The players were very friendly when I was there. It was a great group of players there and the arena and community was really nice" added Lamotte, who is spending his off season working both on and off the ice.
Like Kings forward Nakodan Greyeyes, Austin Lamotte took part in the National Aboriginal Hockey Championship in Whitehorse earlier this month. He put up seven assists in five games played and helped Team Saskatchewan to a silver medal.
There's lots of announcements to come in the coming days for the Dauphin Kings, so be sure to stay tuned!
