Gold Kings land three ALL-WCHL
Colorado, CO - Colorado goaltender Kirk Daubenspeck and forwards Zac Boyer and R.J. Enga have been named to the second team in an announcement by the West Coast Hockey League late Monday.
Daubenspeck currently is tied for the league lead with four shutouts and ranks third with 34 victories, a 2.77 goals against average, and a .907 save percentage. In his most recent start, he turned aside 38 of 39 shots as the Gold Kings cruised past Fresno 6-1 Saturday night.
Boyer should eclipse last year's point total of 90 as he has racked up 89 on 25 goals and 64 assists with two games remaining in the regular season. The 30-year-old Boyer, who played in the NHL with the Dallas Stars, places second in the WCHL in assists and third in overall points.
Enga has backed up a career-best season last year with another productive campaign at the age of 30. He currently stands fourth in scoring at 88 points and second in goals with 44. Enga garnered first-team all-WCHL honors last season after scoring 50 goals and 105 points.
Colorado's three selections on the all-WCHL teams were bettered only by San Diego's four, all of whom landed on the first team. Long Beach and Idaho had two each while Fresno defenseman Cory Murphy rounded out the 12 players honored with either first or second team all-WCHL selections.
The Gold Kings (37-26-7) conclude the regular season with home games Friday and Sunday night at 7:30 p.m. at the Colorado Springs World Arena against the Anchorage Aces. Jack Michaels calls the play-by-play for Colorado's games, all of which are broadcast live on KKCS-AM Hot Talk 1460.
