The Red Deer Senior Rustlers set to kick off inaugural North Central Hockey League season against the Devon Oil Barons

After months of preparation and training, the Red Deer Senior Rustlers are primed to make their North Central Hockey League debut Saturday night against the Oil Barons in Devon.  Following a 6-2 pre-season win against the Eckville Eagles on Sunday, the Rustlers are set to embark on their inaugural regular season just five months after being accepted into the NCHL.

“It’s hard to believe our season opener is already here,” said Vice President and Assistant Captain Kyle Pess. “It seems like just yesterday we were sitting around just throwing out the idea of starting a Senior AA team, and now we’re days away from kicking our season off in Devon.”

The Rustlers’ first home game will go the following Saturday in Penhold, and Pess said there’s already plenty of buzz surrounding the team’s home opener.

“The support we’ve seen from the community has been incredible,” he said. “There’s been no shortage of support from both sponsors and fans, and we can’t wait to hit the ice in Penhold on October 13 in front of our home crowd.”

A familiar face in the Red Deer hockey community will be behind the bench for the Rustlers on Saturday night, as Scott Odegard has signed on to coach, ending the team’s search for a bench boss.

Following Saturday’s road game in Devon, the Rustlers will play four straight home games on October 13, 20, 27 and November 3.

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 calgarymfrc.ca.

About the Red Deer Office
The MFRC works to empower and support our military families. 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.

Central Alberta is home to over 60 military families. The Canadian Forces in Red Deer consist of the Primary Reserve 78th Field Battery, which is part of the 20th Field Artillery Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery, and the 2 Squadron, 41 Signal Regiment Reserve Force communications unit who provides communication information systems, strategic infrastructure services and support to 41 Canadian Brigade Group. Both units also operate out of Cormack Armory in Red Deer.
