Fall Camp continues to get closer and closer every day and the Dauphin Kings have added some size to their lineup.
Two American's will be coming to the City of Sunshine in August. The first player is 2000-born forward, Carter Eha.
Eha played last season with Bloomington Jefferson High School and he was very productive. In 25 games, Eha had 15 goals and 11 assists for the Jaguars. It was Eha's third season with the team and the 26 points were good enough for a career-high.
"Carter is an aggressive kid, has a nice touch and has great wheels. He's going to finish his checks and let guys know he's there," said Dauphin's Northern USA Scout, Andy Kubas. "He's got the ability to not only play that side of the game but also finish and put the puck in the net. I really like his game in its entirety because he can bring both those sides to the ice on a nightly basis."
Eha's presence will also be felt size-wise as well. He's 6'3 and weighs in at 174 pounds.
6'3, 194-pound Gavin Wendorf will also make his way to Dauphin. The defencemen played with Carter last season and he produced 11 points in 22 games. Gavin is from Richfield, Minnesota.
"He's a big body kid, sees the ice really well. He reminds me a lot of Ryan Suter with the Minnesota Wild," added Kubas. "He makes the right first pass and is always composed. He's not necessarily flashy, but very dependable on the back end. Gavin's a tough guy to get around and can move the puck very efficiently."
The team will hold their Fall Camp during the final week of August. The always exciting JoFo Cup intrasquad game goes down on Sunday, September 1 at Credit Union Place.
