Halfway through the second period Darren Gisti put the Kings on the board, putting his great shot to use, rifling a puck off the top bar and in.

The Dauphin Kings visited the Dauphin Fire Department Wednesday evening. 

The Kings divided into groups of three and took to the course set up by Dauphin Fire Chief and Kings Director of Billets Cam Abrey. 

The players had to carry a 160lb. dummy, move a large tire by hitting it with a sledgehammer, then carry two large buckets back towards the fire station. And that's just the first half of the course. 

After that the players took a fire hose, walk forward with it and shoot at the corners of a hockey net. After that they had to roll up a separate hose, then climb a ladder and ring a bell to finish.

The event was done to create create chemistry, communication and overall make for a tighter-knit group of players.

It was a perfect opportunity for new arrivals Ashton Clark and Howard Yawit, who were acquired from Portage Tuesday, to get to know and begin working with their new teammates. 

The Kings are back in action on Friday when they're on the road to Winkler.
