It’s time for another Three Stars of the Week, which is brought to you by Paull Funeral Home and Crematorium. Every Monday we will be awarding three players who had a big week and giving them stars. We will be doing this week-to-week with points accumulating throughout the season. The top three will players will be recognized and presented an award during our final home game of the season.
The Swan Valley Stampeders went 0-2 against the Dauphin Kings this past weekend, and have now lost their last five games. The Dauphin Kings scored five goals Friday night and added four more on home ice Saturday night to claim back-to-back wins over the Stampeders to finish off their four-game mini-series.
Swan Valley couldn’t find any offence this past weekend giving up nine goals against while only scoring two goals, and those came in Friday night’s 5-2 loss. A rough series that the Stampeders want to leave right where it is, behind them. Swan gave up a total of 16 goals against while only scoring three goals. Both Dauphin goaltenders pitched shutouts against Swan Valley throughout their four-game mini-series, solidifying their spot atop the West Division standings.
The Stampeders have been without key players over the past few games due to injuries and suspensions but that looks to change when they head to the MJHL Showcase in Portage la Prairie tonight.
