A collection of Rebels fans, supporting the team they love.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
