Blues claim MJHL title

The Winnipeg Blues completed their Cinderella run to the Manitoba Junior Hockey League title on home ice on Tuesday.

The Blues, who finished fourth in the Addison Division during the regular season, toppled the Sher-Wood Division champion Dauphin Kings 5-1 in Winnipeg, earning a 4-1 victory in the best-of-seven Turnbull Cup final.

Kamerin Nault scored two goals and assisted on another for the Blues in the deciding game, with Taeron Lewis setting up three goals.

Clay Tait and Mitch Hansen each had a goal and an assist, while Warren Callis also scored for Winnipeg, which stormed through the post-season with a 12-3 record. Brent Wold was the only King to beat Blues goalie Byron Spriggs, who made 24 saves and was named playoff MVP.

Meanwhile, the MJHL announced on Tuesday that Dauphin native Barry Trotz will be the honorary co-chair for the Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup, to be held from April 25 to May 4 at Credit Union Place.

The Kings will host the Blues and the champions of the Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia leagues in the western Canadian Junior A championship.

A former player, head coach and general manager with the Kings, Trotz was removed as head coach of the Nashville Predators this week after guiding the club through its first 15 seasons in the National Hockey League.

The longest tenured active coach with a single team in the NHL prior to the move, Trotz was behind the Nashville bench for 1,196 regular-season games, leading the club to a 557-479-160 record.
