Press Release

Dauphin Kings’ veterans Shane Luke and Steven Shamanski have each been selected to receive major awards in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.

Luke was presented with the Lorne “Windy” Lyndon Trophy, awarded for hockey ability and sportsmanship. Shamanski was honoured with the Brian Kozak Trophy, given to the top defenceman in the MJHL. Prior to their game on Friday both players were presented with their trophies by MJHL Commissioner Kim Davis.

Runners-up for top defenceman were Dale Warkentin of OCN Blizzard and Zach Tully of Portage Terriers.
