Kings pick up Ziobro, trade Bacon

The Dauphin Kings have picked up 20-year-old Forward Mark Ziobro from the Dryden Ice Dogs who play in the Superior International Junior Hockey League.

 

“We wanted to improve our hockey club,” said Marc Berry, Head Coach for the Dauphin Kings. “We needed some leadership and some veteran presence up front, and this is how we could do that.”

Ziobro put up 10 points last year in 43 games for the Ice Dogs, in which the team reached the Dudley Hewitt Cup in Ontario

“He’s another character guy, he has great leadership,” said Berry. “And he’s tough as nails, he will stand up for teammates and he is great at creating space for himself and others. Him being on this team will make things easier on the young kids early in the season.”

Going the other way is 19-year-old Dawson Bacon. Bacon put up six points for the Kings last year in 56 games while racking up 91 penalty minutes.

“He was a great kid, and a good player,” said Berry. “But when you make a trade like this, you always have to give up something. We feel like we’ve recruited pretty well so far, he was just caught in a numbers game. Now in Dryden, they’re hosting the Dudley Hewitt Cup, so he will have plenty of opportunity there.”

The Kings open up their exhibition schedule on September 4 against Swan Valley at Credit Union Place at 3:00 p.m.
