Easton Odut scored three goals and the Dauphin Peewee Kings' #2 "Team Carnegie" are the Parkland League Champions.

They swept the Dauphin Peewee Kings' #1 "Team Myhre" last night in the league final.

After winning game one, 3-1, team Carnegie won a thrilling 6-5 game last night.

Trayden Catcheway, Sam Swanton, and Dixon Flett also scored for team Carnegie in the win.

Liam Chartrand had a solid game for team Myhre with two goals. Linden Smigelsky, Conner Weber - McKay, and Zach Perih scored once each in the close defeat.

Alexander Uryga is originally from North Vancouver, British Columbia. But now, it's a few provinces away where he calls home. The 20-year-old is in his first year with the Swan Valley Stampeders after starting the season with the Olds Grizzlys in the Alberta Junior Hockey League.

Since coming to Swan River, Uryga has played 47 games including playoffs and he's become a dominant force with his ability to change a game with a massive hit or a big goal.

"It's definitely a lot different than living up in Vancouver, but it's a really tight-knit community here and the fans love us," said Uryga. "It's like nothing I've experienced before. All the guys are super close together and it honestly couldn't be any better."

In the 43 regular season games, the 20-year-old added 34 points (15G) which is a very solid offensive input. It's in the playoffs where the veteran has taken his game to the next level. In the team's four Turnbull Cup playoff games so far, Uryga has six points (2G). 

The 40 points total this year also ties a career-high for Alexander. He had 40 combined with the North Vancouver Wolf Pack who play in the Pacific Junior Hockey League back in 2015-16.

"I think the biggest thing is realizing my role on this team. We already have the top scorers like Tripp, Goethals, but our team really needs physical players and I fit that role," said Uryga. "I'm just trying to help this team in any way I can."

Since that season with the Wolf Pack, Uryga has been around the world to play the game he loves. He played two games in that season with Kelowna before going to play six games with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs in the BCHL. The first big change came in the 2017-18 season when he was Poland bound. 

Uryga completely ripped up the junior scene in Poland. Playing with Polonia Bytom U20 team, he had seven regular season points in two games and he added nine more points in just four playoff games. While he was having that success, Alex also made the jump up to the men's team. It marked the first time that Uryga played against grown men at the professional level.

"My dad got a call from the organization, so I thought I might as well go experience the hockey in Poland and it was a great idea," added Uryga. "It was really different because I was playing with the older guys and I couldn't rely on my size anymore to have success because everyone else was strong as well. It really showed me what hockey is like outside of Canada."

"I had to learn some tricks out there which I was able to bring back here," he added. 

Those six playoff points this year came in the Parkland battle as Uryga's Stamps' did quick work of Dauphin in sweeping them in four games. The Stamps' are now preparing for their MJHL semifinal series against the Steinbach Pistons. The best of seven will begin this weekend at the Centennial Arena.

"Our main goal is to obviously win the Turnbull Cup and Anavet Cup and go to the National Championship," said Uryga. "With that being said, that is a long way away so we're just going game by game at this point."

Stay tuned for more Stampeder coverage leading up to their semifinal series against Steinbach.

It was a great run for the Dauphin Clippers, but that run has come up just short of winning a league title.

The club couldn’t muster any offence in a 3-0 loss against Hamiota earlier tonight in game two of the Championship series.

The win gave the Huskies a clean sweep in the best of three. 

Despite the series defeat, it was still a great season for Dauphin and they’ll look to get back on top next season. 

Another solid weekend of curling has locked up Dauphin's Lane Prokopowich and her foursome a spot at the Canola Growers 2020 Junior Provincial Championships.

Lane, Brianna Cullen, Kathryn Cullen, and Serena Gray-Withers cruised through their competition to earn the spot. First up they beat the Beaudry rink, 10-2 and they followed that up with an 8-3 win over the Onagi foursome.

The domination continued with a 10-4 win over the Walter team. That 10-4 clinched the team's spot to next year's provincials.

Earlier this month, Dauphin's Devin Himpe made his Team Canada coaching debut as he was chosen as an Assistant Coach for the men's hockey team that took part in the FISU Games.

The journey took him to Krasnoyarsk, Russia and the road included a bronze medal. The Canadians beat Kazakhstan in the third-place game, 3-0 to claim the bronze medal. It was a big bounce back for the team who lost in the semifinals against the host Russia squad.

"You're going to Russia to try and win a gold medal, so obviously we were a little short on our goal," said Himpe. "With that being said, knowing that we won a medal was absolutely amazing. I don't think I'll have anything like that anytime soon. There was like 3000 fans cheering for us when we won so that was awesome."

"It was pretty surreal stepping on the ice for the first time," he added. "Wearing Hockey Canada stuff and everyone had that nervous energy but it was good nervous energy. It was great getting to know the guys and we had a great group of them."

In the round robin, Himpe and the rest of the team beat the United Kingdom, 12-0. They also beat Latvia, 6-1, Switzerland, 6-2, and Sweden, 11-1. The only slip up for the team in the round robin was a 4-3 loss against Kazakhstan, the same team the Canadians beat in the bronze medal game.

"Kazakhstan obviously beat us, so it was nice that we got a rematch with them and it was great that we beat them out," added Himpe.

Devin will now get some time off coaching as the Bisons season has been over for already several weeks. He will be back on the bench with the team next fall.

"I think the biggest thing I'm taking back is just the overall experience," said Himpe. "I learned quite a bit about certain preparation and certain motivational situations I can put myself in. We were all able to come together without knowing each other going in and we were able to put some wins together.

"I'm definitely going to miss it but I am excited to be home and I'm happy," he added. "It was amazing and it was a once in a lifetime experience."

Russia ended up beating Slovakia in the final.

After a tough ending in their semifinal this morning, the Grand Plains Atom Hawks bounced back in a big way by winning the bronze medal game.

It was the Elks that went up 1-0 just eight seconds into the game and they made it 2-0 less than five minutes later.

Landyn Garton brought the Hawks back in it. Grady Turetsky had the assist.

The Hawks took flight in the second and they never looked back.

Colton Miner continued his fantastic season with several key saves to keep the team in it before they tied it. 

Kingston Stirling blasted a shot from the point. 

Owen Sigvaldason scored the game winner off a dandy of a pass from Zak Fillion.
