Cole Miller and Carson Golder scored for the Oil Kings (1-12-1-0), who were outshot 34-25.

The previous modern WHL record for wins to start a regular season belonged to the Swift Current Broncos, who won their first 12 contests to begin the 1988-89 campaign.   

The all-time WCHL/WHL record for wins to begin a season belongs to the 1967-68 Estevan Bruins squad that won their first 22 games out of the gate.   

Red Deer now has a chance to equal its franchise record winning streak of 14 games, set during the 2001-02 season, when they visit the Swift Current Broncos this Friday, November 4.
