Red Deer Rustlers stacking up the wins


From the Red Deer Senior AA Rustlers


The Red Deer Senior Rustlers move to a 6-0 record after back-to-back wins Saturday and Sunday.

The Red Deer Senior Rustlers sit atop the North Central Hockey League with a perfect 6-0 record after a pair of 7-2 wins over the Whitecourt Wild and Bonnyville Senior Pontiacs on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, respectively.

The Rustlers kicked off the first of back-to-back games Saturday night at home with a 7-2 win over Whitecourt, the team’s last game at the Penhold Regional Multiplex until December 8.

The squad hit the road early the next morning to face the Senior Pontiacs in Bonnyville, and, after a delayed start time due to a broken-down bus on the way to the game, skated to an identical 7-2 victory.

Assistant Captain Jonny Li lead the way offensively over the weekend, with two goals and an assist in each game.

“This is the first time we’ve had to play on back-to-back days this season, so coming away with four points feels pretty good,” Li said after Sunday’s win. “Today was definitely a bit of a test for us, as we came in cold with little to no warm-up, but nobody used that as an excuse and everyone came out hard right out of the gate.”

Aaron Dyck put up back-to-back wins for the Rustlers, with 18-save and 28-save performances on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. He and Brett Bothwell both hold identical 3-0 records so far this season.

Up next for the Rustlers is a pair of road games on Friday, November 9 against the Wild in Mayerthorpe, and Saturday, November 10 in Camrose against the Daysland Northstars. Puck drop is 8:15 p.m. for both games.

About the Calgary MFRC
The Calgary MFRC supports families of our Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members within our service area of Southern Alberta, including Red Deer and Lethbridge. Our CAF soldiers, veterans and their family members face unique challenges that make being in the military an occupation different from any other. At the MFRC we aim to help lessen the impact of these unique challenges, which includes frequent separations, extended deployments and risks. The MFRC is a registered charity run by a volunteer board of directors that was started in 1991 by the Department of National Defense in conjunction with the Military Family Support Program. To learn more, visit

We offer a variety of programs and services including mental health supports, social activities, workshops and training, family separation and reunification support, deployment support, children and youth programs, and referral services to help. Our families are the strength behind the uniform, and we’re here for them.

The Calgary MFRC has satellite offices in both Red Deer and Lethbridge. Each office caters to the specific needs of the forces in their areas. The Red Deer Branch is based at the Cormack Armory and serves a large part of Central Alberta.
