The Senior Rustlers move to 8-3 in inaugural NCHL season

The Red Deer Senior Rustlers kept pace in the North Central Hockey League standings on Saturday night with a 6-2 victory over the visiting Eckville Eagles.

The Rustlers earned their second straight win, avenging a 3-0 loss to the Eagles back on November 23 in Eckville. They accomplished a similar feat last weekend against the then league-leading Morinville Kings.

“Tonight was a four-point game for us in the standings, and the whole team played hard and delivered,” said Assistant Captain Kyle Pess. “We really didn’t put forth our best effort the last time we played these guys, and just like last weekend against Morinville, everyone came out hard and got the job done.”

Pess notched a pair of goals against Eckville, his first two tallies of the season. Pess was held goalless through his first eight games, but still led the team with 10 assists.

“It’s a big relief, for sure,” said Pess. “The goalless streak became a bit of a running joke with the team, but I’m glad I was able to help the team out in a big way tonight, and of course to finally get that monkey off my back.”

Brennen Francon also notched two goals, including the short-handed game-winner, adding to his team-leading goal total, which now sits at eight. Ty Berkholtz added three assists, and leads the Rustlers with 17 points.

Red Deer heavily dominated Eckville on the shot clock, outshooting them 53-17. In his eighth start of the season, Brett Bothwell needed just 15 saves to earn his fifth NCHL win.

While four teams are tied with 16 points, the Rustlers sit in second place in the league, one point back of the Daysland Northstars.

The Rustlers play their last game of 2018 Friday night against the Pirates in Sylvan Lake. Puck drop is 8:30pm at the Nexsource Centre.

RDLIP Would Like to Know Your Thoughts on Racism

Understanding Experiences of and Responses To Racism in Red Deer

Red Deer Local Immigration Partnership (RDLIP) would like to know your thoughts on racism in our community as they launch a survey to aid in the Racial Harmony Campaign, which is a social marketing campaign aimed to change perceptions, attitudes and behaviours on Black, Indigenous and people of colour (BIPOC).

The survey is conducted to gather perceptions on people of colour and the state of race relations in our community. The findings from the survey will inform strategies in the implementation of the campaign. “It is important for us to understand the extent of racism in Red Deer”, said Lori Jack, Co-Chair of the Central Planning Council, RDLIP. “It’s the first step in building harmony among all of us”, added Jack.

“We would like to ask the community to help us by answering the survey”, says Ezgi Sarioglu, Program Manager, RDLIP. “This survey will provide valuable insight on the experiences of our community members who may be struggling due to racism”, added Sarioglu. The survey will take 10-15 minutes to complete. Three $100.00 Visa gift cards are available for participants who would like their name into a draw. The survey can be found on this link: .

The RDLIP is a community-based partnership aiming to create a community which openly receives newcomers (immigrants and refugees); embraces cultural diversity; strives to understand the needs of newcomers to provide access to a full range of services and participation in all aspects of society; and works to strengthen the understanding of two-way responsibility & benefit for newcomers and the broader community.
