The Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s Dauphin Kings have now officially added 19-year-old right-winger Daulton Siwak to the roster for the rest of the season.
The Kings were fined $2,500 after being accused of tampering with the former Western Hockey League player following a joint investigation conducted by Hockey Manitoba, the WHL and the MJHL — who operate under joint recruiting guidelines.
Siwak, who quit the Cougars back on Jan. 6, was under suspension until Sunday when he was officially released and joined the Kings.
Siwak scored nine goals and had eight assists for 17 points in 38 WHL games for the Cougars before leaving the team. He is slated to make his Kings’ debut tonight when Dauphin plays host the Portage Terriers at 7 p.m.
"He’s a big body with a great skill set," Kings head coach/GM Marlin Murray stated in a news release. "Daulton goes to the net hard and he’s tough to play against. We will be looking for him to contribute to an already strong group of forwards."
The Kings, who are ranked fourth in the country in the latest Canadian Junior A hockey rankings, are currently riding an impressive 10-game winning streak and lead the MJHL with a 37-11-2 record.
Russell Turner’s hat trick sparked the Waywayseecappo Wolverines to a 7-4 victory over the Neepawa Natives in MJHL action on Monday night in Waywayseecappo.
Pilot Mound’s Brett Pinkerton, Brett Lafond, Zaine Walker and Curtis Veitch also scored for Wayway (20-25-5). Brandonite Brayden Cuthbert replied with a goal and an assist, while Troy Hoban, Drake Lindsay and T.J. Sneath also scored goals for Neepawa (12-33-5).
