It was only his 14th Junior A start, but Austin Seibel looked like a grizzled veteran on Wednesday evening.

Playing their final regular season game against the Blizzard, the Kings downed and shutout the Blizzard, 2-0, in front of a solid crowd at the Roy H. Johnston Arena.

Seibel turned away 39 shots to record his first shutout and he made several incredible saves along the way. Even though Dauphin was playing without Jordan Bax, Cayden Glover, and Ashton Paul, they found a way to earn two points. Ethan Williment scored the game winner while Madden Murray also found the back of the net for Dauphin.

With the victory, the Kings won their 36th game of the season and they're now three points back of the Blizzard for second place in the West Division. Dauphin can still get home ice advantage for the first round if they are to win their final two games this weekend and the Blizzard have to lose their final two.

The Oil Capitals beat Winkler on Wednesday which means Dauphin will officially play the Blizzard in the first round of the Turnbull Cup playoffs which are slated to get underway next Friday.
