Winnipeg’s Kyle Bettens will play the rest of the 2018-19 season with the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s Steinbach Pistons.

Bettens Returned to Steinbach for 2018-19

After beginning the year with the Fargo Force of the United States Hockey League, the 17-year-old forward was sent back to the MJHL last week, where he has now dressed in three games for the Pistons. After going pointless in eight USHL games, the  has picked up a goal and an assist in his first three regular season MJHL games. 

The 2016-17 season saw the 6-foot-2, 190-pound score 16 goals and finish the year at exactly one point-per-game for the Winnipeg Wild of Manitoba’s AAA Midget Hockey League. In 2017-18, Bettens completely tore up the league, finishing with 40 goals and 95 points in 48 games. He then earned a one-game call up to Steinbach, where he tallied three assists at the end of the MJHL season. 

Steinbach (14-6-1) is currently sitting two points out of first place in third, behind both Portage and Swan Valley. Bettens and the Pistons will look to pick things up in Virden on Thursday, as Steinbach heads out to the Tundra Oil & Gas Place for a 7:30 P.M. matchup with Oil Capitals.
