Dauphin, Canada

Dauphin's Wade Kopytko is gearing up for the Westman High School Hockey League playoffs as a part of the Dauphin Clippers, and the Dauphin native has been having a good season so far.

In 18 games, Wade's chipped in 23 points.

"I feel I've been having a really good season," said Kopytko. "It didn't help when I suffered a concussion, but other than that, it's great."

Kopytko lit it up this past Saturday when he scored three goals as the Clippers beat Virden in a Provincial qualifier.

"That game definitely gives me lots of confidence heading into the playoffs," said Kopytko.

Now, the Clippers are getting set to welcome Deloraine on Friday in game one of their best-of-three first-round matchup.

"We're all ready to go," said Kopytko.  "Everyone's feeling pretty confident.  We just need to do the little things and, hopefully, we'll come out with the win."

You can see Wade and the rest of the Clippers when the game starts at 7:45.
