1 minute read

By Sheldon Spackman

The Red Deer Rebels have won the first game of a four-game road trip. They beat the Raiders in Prince Albert 4-3 Friday night and have now won back to back games in the process.

After falling behind 2-0 in the first period, the Rebels turned it up in the second, out shooting P.A. 19-12 and scoring twice to tie it up at 2-2 after forty minutes. The Rebels second period goals came from Alexander Alexeyev who scored on the power play and Lane Zablocki who came over in a trade from the Regina Pats this week.

The third period saw the home town Raiders score just 48 seconds in to make it 3-2 Prince Albert. However, the Rebels Michael Spacek responded later with a short handed goal at the 7:01 mark to tie it up at 3-3. Red Deer’s Adam Musil scored the game winner on the power play at 16:52 to make it a 4-3 final.

The win improves the Rebels record to 20-17-4-2 with 46 points. Good for third place in the WHL’s Central Division. The Raiders drop to 8-32-2-2 with 20 points and sixth place or last in the East Division.

The second game of the Rebels four-game road trip is Saturday, January 14th in Saskatoon against the Blades. The Blades are 16-22-5-1 with 38 points and fifth place in the East Division.

It’s a 7:05 pm face-off.

Access to Dawe Centre pool and community centre affected by expansion project – Details

Published on

Limited access to G.H. Dawe Community Centre this summer due to construction

Due to construction, access to the G.H. Dawe Community Centre will be limited this summer, with a full closure planned for August.

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.
