For the first time in nearly a month, the Red Deer Rebels have won a game in regulation time, shutting out the Calgary Hitmen 3-0 at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary on Tuesday night.
It was a close battle throughout the game but it was only Red Deer who managed to put the puck in the net. The first period almost finished with no scoring but the Rebels Adam Musil scored at the 19:24 mark to make it 1-0 Red Deer after twenty minutes of play. It eventually turned out to be the game winner and the first of three for Musil on the night.
The second period saw Adam Musil score his second goal of the game at the 16:01 mark to make it 2-0 Red Deer heading into the second intermission. Musil then scored his third of the game in the third period to earn a hatrick on the night at the 19:17 mark, with an empty net goal to round out the scoring.
The win improves the Rebels record to 11-10-2-1 with 25 points and still good for second place in the WHL’s Central Division. Calgary drops to 8-10-2-0 with 18 points and fifth place in the Central Division.
The Rebels look to keep their new found winnings ways on track Wednesday evening, November 23rd when they visit the Kootenay Ice in Cranbrook, B.C. for a 7 o’clock face-off. The Ice are 4-13-5-1 on the season so far with 14 points and sixth place or last in the Central Division.

Access to Dawe Centre pool and community centre affected by expansion project – Details
Limited access to G.H. Dawe Community Centre this summer due to construction
As announced yesterday, City recreation centres are opening fully to the public as of July 1. With construction underway at the G.H. Dawe Community Centre, only limited services and areas will be available.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Starting July 2, fitness and gym areas will open from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., daily. In July, summer day camps that normally operate from the Dawe will operate from other facilities.
- The pool will remain closed until September.
- To accommodate interior heating and ventilation construction, the facility will fully close from July 26 to August 31. Some registered preschool and summer camp programming may proceed, but no rental or general admission options will be available.
- On September 1, we anticipate the pool will be open, but some other amenities, like the gym, may not be available. More information will be provided as construction progresses.
- Playing surfaces in the arena will not be available until construction is complete, which is expected to be early 2023.
We are currently offering a discounted monthly Value Pass for $27 for adults ($24.50 for seniors; $21.90 for students; $19.30 for youth; $14.20 for children, and $60.50 for a family. It provides unlimited access to all facilities. As of August the Value Pass will only provide access to the Recreation Centre and Michener Aquatic Centre; however, access to the Dawe will be included in the Value pass until the pool, gym and fitness areas are open.
About the G.H. Dawe Community Centre Project
Work is underway now on the G.H. Dawe Community Centre Project and some exciting changes are in store. We expect to welcome visitors to the transformed space in early 2023. Here’s just some of what you can expect:
- Two NHL standard playing surfaces
- Expanded fitness areas, including a running track
- Outdoor spray park with washroom facilities
- Improved accessibility
- Additional north entrance + site access from 67 Street
- Additional parking
During construction, there will be some changes and impacts to existing amenities and programs, and we’ll do you best to share this information in advance. Thanks for your patience as we complete this work.
