Logan Calder has been nothing short of exceptional since joining the Kings at the trade deadline. Calder's work ethic is unbelievable and more often than not when he goes into the corners battling for a puck, he will come out with it.

In game six of the finals against Steinbach, Calder took a nice pass from Brayden Dube at the left post and beat Will Hambley and that goal added some insurance as Dauphin and Steinbach needed a game seven. In game seven, Calder once again came to play and came up huge.

While a man down, he stopped a clearing attempt with his stick and skated down to the left-side circles and snapped a shot past Hambley. Later in the game with about eight minutes to play, Calder won a battle in the right corner and centred a puck for 16-year-old Brayden Dube and the Roblin native did the rest, giving Dauphin a 2-1 lead and they never looked back.

You can either sell at the trade deadline, stay firm with what you have or try to add some all-stars, Doug Hedley decided the latter was the best decision and Calder has turned out to be a huge reason why Dauphin are MJHL champions.

"It was such a great feeling to win with a great group of guys," said Calder. "We were very happy to get the job done in Steinbach."

Logan is a proven champion -- he won a title with Portage in 2019 -- when the Terriers downed the Swan Valley Stampeders in seven games. Now the focus has switched to the Centennial Cup which begins on Friday against the Ottawa Jr. Senators. They took down Hawkesbury in the final of the Central Canada Hockey League. 

Calder has been crucial to the team's success so far and if Dauphin wants to have success in Estevan, you can expect the two-time MJHL champion to be front and centre.
