The 2022-2023 Red Deer Rebels are now in the history books.
The Rebels beat the Calgary Hitmen 5-2 last night to give them a record eighth consecutive win to start the season. The old record was set by the Memorial Cup winning team from 2000-2001.
Maybe with the record on their minds, the team went up 3-1 in the first period. Ben King had a couple goals in the opening frame, and would add an assist as well.
The Rebels perfect game streak gets put on the line Friday night as they hit the road to Medicine Hat, and then host Prince Albert Saturday night at The Peavey Mart Centrium.
