    The Senior Rustlers hand Morinville Kings first regulation loss of season

    The Red Deer Senior Rustlers are back in the win column following a 3-2 win over the NCHL-leading Morinville Kings on Saturday, becoming the first team to do so in regulation this season.

    Coming off a narrow 4-3 loss to the Kings on November 24, the Rustlers came out of the gate with a three-goal first period, with two goals from Connor Patchett and another from Ty Berkholtz. Berkholtz added an assist on both Patchett goals to finish the game with three points, giving him the team lead with 14 points on the season.

    The Kings finally solved Rustlers netminder Brett Bothwell late in the second period, and would add another with a two-man advantage in the third, but the Rustlers shut the door the rest of the way to preserve the win.

    Special teams were the difference maker for the Rustlers, who went 2-for-5 on the powerplay, and an impressive 7-for-8 on the penalty kill, including a big five-on-three kill in the opening minutes of the game.

    “This was a huge win for us, both in the standings, and mentally,” said Bothwell, who made 30 saves for his fourth win of the season. “We’ve faced some adversity over the past month, but tonight was an opportunity to bounce back and make a big statement against one of, if not the top team in the league, and we did just that.”

    The Senior Rustlers improve to 7-3 on the season, and stayed perfect at home with their fifth straight win at the Penhold Multiplex.

    The Rustlers are back home for the last time in 2018 on Saturday, December 15 for another important match-up against the Eckville Eagles, who also sit near the top of the NCHL standings. Game time is 7:30pm. The 2018 portion of the season closes out in Sylvan Lake on Friday, December 21 against the Pirates.

    Christmas Bureau Delivers A Hamper Full of Celebration to 1000 Red Deer Families



    If you like this, share it!

  • If there’s one place in Red Deer that best resembles Santa’s Workshop it has to be the Christmas Bureau. Many weeks before the big day the donations start to arrive.  Christmas gifts, food, and money will all be donated… stored, sorted, displayed… and parcelled up for their trip to over one thousand homes in the area.  They say the Christmas Bureau helps at least one family on every street in town.

    As you might imagine the days before Christmas can be quite hectic as everything comes together at once.  All the gifts are dispersed through the city to be wrapped and stored under Christmas trees waiting for this special morning.  All the food and goodies are sorted and placed in over 1000 boxes.  Then with a real sense of excitement and urgency, hundreds of people file politely into the Red Deer Christmas Bureau.  For two straight days over 500 Christmas Food hampers are presented to deserving families who’ve arrived to pick them up.

    Thousands of Central Albertans support the Red Deer Christmas Bureau in a variety of manners.  Red Deer… this is the result of your generosity, your time, and your love for your neighbours.  Thank you and Merry Christmas!
