“We look forward to a busy and productive year to come and encourage everyone to get caught up in the Spirit of the Game,” say the Daleys.

“Summer will soon pass and we will drop the puck on the 2009-2010 season,” says Russell. “We hope everyone will take the time to experience the excitement of Dauphin Kings home games and join us on the road to the 2010 RBC Cup. We appreciate everyone’s support and encourage you to come back and join us again and again.”

“Hockey fans in Dauphin should expect to see some of the best Junior A hockey around,” says Scott Smith, Hockey Canada’s chief operating officer. “This tournament continues to grow and we’re looking forward to a wonderful week next year in Dauphin.”
