Kings edge Blues to extend series

The host Dauphin Kings netted a pair of third-period goals on Sunday night to stay alive in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League championship series.

Souris’s Tanner Butler set up Dillan McCombie’s power-play marker five minutes into the frame and Brent Wold’s game-winner eight minutes later as the Kings edged the Winnipeg Blues 2-1.

Brandonite Brayden Cuthbert picked up an assist for the Kings, who now trails the best-of-seven series 3-1.

Jordon Piccolino got the nod in net for the first time in the playoffs for Dauphin, and he responded by stopping 27 of the 28 shots he faced.

Kamerin Nault was the only Winnipeg shooter to beat him with his first-period marker, while Byron Spriggs made 24 saves for the Blues.

The series now shifts back to Winnipeg, where the Blues will try to win the Turnbull Trophy on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.

Duo heading south

A pair of MJHL players have committed to play U.S. college hockey next season.

Justin Coachman of the Neepawa Natives will play NCAA Division 3 hockey with the Concordia University Wisconsin Falcons, while Craig Fournier of the Waywayseecappo Wolverines will join the Minot State Beavers, who are a Division 1 team in the American Collegiate Hockey Association.

Coachman, a 6-foot-4, 225-pound defenceman from Rochester, N.Y., had one goal and 12 points in 55 games with the Natives this season. He also posted 159 penalty minutes.

Fournier, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound forward from Maple Creek, Sask., had nine goals, 22 points and 69 penalty minutes in 55 regular season games with the Wolverines. He also scored in the opening game of the best-of-three Sher-Wood Division play-in series.
