Bainses look to impress at Rebels camp

They may share a last name and both played for Delta Hockey Academy, but Arshdeep and Akash Bains aren’t related. Arshdeep, who took to the ice for the second time at rookie camp played with the Bantam Prep team last year in the Canadian Sport School Hockey League. He registered 28 points (15g, 13a) in 25 games and considers himself a scoring forward.

Jerome has bigger goals at this year’s Rebels camp

In his second time at Red Deer Rebels Training Camp, Lethbridge forward D-Jay Jerome wants to be more than a player. The 16-year-old didn’t make the lineup last year and was sent to his midget team after a couple of preseason games.

Crease competition heats up at Rebels camp

It’s one of those cases when two is a crowd and in this case the crowd is in the crease. Last year’s Red Deer Rebels starting goalie Rylan Toth, and backup Trevor Martin both enter the 2016-17 Western Hockey League Season as overage players. Rebels GM/head coach Brent Sutter has until Oct. 15 to make the decision on which goalie to go with, but the competition starts now.

Herauf hoping to crack depleted defence corps

With only three returning defencemen, the competition to crack the Red Deer Rebels blue line is wide open. Among those gunning for an open spot is the Rebels Western Hockey League Bantam Draft first round pick from two seasons ago, Jacob Herauf.

Draw of playing in WHL brings Martin from New Mexico

A 72-game season, riding the bus, the Sutter reputation and a chance to play in the “prestigious” Western Hockey League have driven one player more than 2,500 km to try to crack the Red Deer Rebels lineup. Quinn Martin, 17, has been in Red Deer for a few weeks getting ready for training camp, which opened Wednesday. The Santa Fe, New Mexico native was in Red Deer for prospects camp back in June and made enough of an impression to get invited back.

Lamoureux to replace O’Rourke as Rebels new assistant coach

A familiar face will rejoin the Red Deer Rebels, but this time on the bench, as Pierre-Paul Lamoureux will be the team’s next assistant coach. Lamoureux, 28, played three seasons with the Rebels from 2004-07. The Grand Forks, N.D., native was named the team’s new assistant coach in a release on Wednesday.

Rebels add Russian in import draft

Size and youth are two of the qualities that stand out in the Red Deer Rebels import draft selection. The 16-year-old Alexander Alexeyev, a defenceman, was selected 49th overall on Tuesday in the Canadian Hockey League import draft. He stands six-foot-three and weighs 180 pounds.

Rebels ink eight prospects

Red Deer Rebels general manager, head coach and owner Brent Sutter got out the ink and signed eight young hockey players to the club. Five of the eight prospects who signed deals were selected by the Rebels in the 2016 Western Hockey League Bantam draft. The five were the Rebels’ first five choices in the draft held on May 5 in Calgary.

Sutter left feeling good after Memorial Cup

It was Western Hockey League brand hockey at its finest. A tough, tight-checking and hard hitting game. The Brandon Wheat King struck first in the second period, but the Red Deer Rebels tied it up with 5:05 to play in regulation.

Rebels have tough decisions ahead

In the aftermath of building a roster to win in 2016, the Red Deer Rebels have some important pieces coming back. Change is a constant in junior hockey, but Rebels GM/head coach Brent Sutter pointed out that there are a number of forwards returning into the lineup.

Nogier brings Memorial Cup experience to Rebels

Cracking a Memorial Cup-bound team’s lineup as a 16-year-old isn’t easy. Host teams tend to load up on older players, knowing they have a chance to compete for the title. Defenceman Nelson Nogier knew this heading into training camp ahead of the 2012-13 Saskatoon Blades season. The Blades hosted the Memorial Cup in 2013 and Nogier knew he had a challenge ahead of him to made the roster.

Red Deer-born players get chance to shine on big stage

As if lacing up the skates for the team they grew up watching wasn’t special enough.

Rivals take similar path to Memorial Cup

Thirty years ago, Brent Sutter and Dale Hunter were fierce, competitive NHLers. Now they coach fierce, competitive Canadian Hockey League teams. Hunter bought the Ontario Hockey League’s London Knights in 2000 and has coached them ever since. Similarly, Sutter bought the Red Deer Rebels in 1999 and took over as head coach.
