    “A lot of work has gone into this moment, and it’s going to be really special for everyone involved,” said General Manager Ted Emmett. “Our board members, players, families, friends and sponsors have all invested a lot into this team, and what we’ve already accomplished is no small feat. For the team to finally hit the ice in front of a home crowd is just the cherry on top of what’s already been an incredible experience for all of us.”

    Doors open at 7pm at the Penhold Multiplex, with puck drop set for 7:45, following a short ceremony at 7:30. The first 100 fans in attendance will receive a free Rustlers cowbell.

    The Red Deer Senior Rustlers erase a 3-0 defecit to defeat the Devon Barons 5-4 in inagural North Central Hockey League game.

    Despite falling behind 3-0 early, the Red Deer Senior Rustlers bounced back to defeat the Barons 5-4 in Devon in the team’s North Central Hockey League debut.

    After getting two goals back and surrendering another to the Barons, the Rustlers tied the game 4-4 near the end of the second period, with Dustin Moore scoring the game-winner in the opening minutes of the third, his second goal of the game.

    “The Barons played a great game, they came out hard and played a more physical game than maybe most of us were expecting,” said Moore. “We came out a little flat in the first period, but we stuck with it, figured it out, and were able to pull out a win in a memorable first game.”

    Moore also had an assist for a three-point effort, and was named the game’s first star. Brennen Francon, Mike Dempster and Dylan Winnicky were the other Rustlers goal scorers. Goaltender Aaron Dyck earned the win for the Rustlers.

    The Rustlers now look forward to four straight home games, including a rematch with the Barons on October 13, the team’s home-opener. Doors open at 7pm at the Penhold Multiplex, with puck drop set for 7:45, following a short ceremony at 7:30.
