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.

Empowered, Happy and Healthy

Michelle lost a kidney to cancer 20 years ago. Her blood pressure has been challenging to keep in a healthy range since. A busy life with little focus on healthy got her in trouble. In late December 2020, she ended up in emergency with extremely high blood pressure in the 200/150 range and a blood sugar of 25. She was very sick. She had a second similar episode in January. At that time, she was let go from her job. This turned out to be the best thing that happened as she now had time to focus on her health.

The RDPCN family nurse recommended she attend Diabetes the Basics as well as providing her with ongoing one-to-one support for several months. She also got connected to a weight management program, supervised exercise and Heartwise.

Fast forward to 18 months, she has decreased her clothing size from 20 to 14. Her blood sugar is now 7 and her blood pressure is in the range of 138/95. Great improvements!

She is back to work. She walks about an hour per day and she feels amazing! She has used the portion control plate to help improve her eating habits. She is eating way better and enjoying it. One thing she could not give up was Pepsi. She used to have at least 3 cans per day. Now she uses Diet Pepsi in much smaller volumes, but she cannot get by without some Pepsi. Long-lasting insulin and using the Libre sensor have been great tools to help her live healthily. She feels very empowered, happy and healthy!!
