DAUPHIN, MB – The Dauphin Kings have brought in some big talent to their goal crease with the addition of netminder Duncan McGovern.
The 6’2, 205 lbs Winnipeg product started this season with the WHL’s Medicine Hat Tigers. The Tigers selected him 91st overall (5th round) in the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft. This season McGovern has played in just six contests with a record of 2-4, a 4.06 goals against average and a .858 save percentage.
Last season McGovern was excellent between the pipes for the Manitoba AAA Midget Hockey League’s Central Plains Capitals. He went 12-10 with a 2.45 goals against average, a .919 save percentage and three shutouts. He was also 2-3 in the post season (2.10 GAA & .925 SV%).
Bringing in McGovern adds another 16 year old to the Dauphin Kings’ lineup. The club is now up to three on their roster.
“Duncan is a very driven and passionate player who knows you can’t take any time off. He has good size, is technically sound and moves like a pro.” says Kings Head Coach a & GM Marc Berry.
“Duncan is a player that’s been in our system for a few years now and he’s been to a couple of our camps, so we know him well. I also went and saw him take part in the Hockey Canada U-17 Showcase in Calgary where he preformed well.
We are extremely happy to be able to add Duncan to our lineup and are looking forward to seeing him in action in the near future.”
