RED DEER, Alta. - Nathan Green's shootout goal was the winner as the Brandon Wheat Kings edged the Red Deer Rebels 2-1 in a Western Hockey League game Tuesday.

Matt Calvert scored a first-period goal for Brandon (32-14-3-1) and Landon Ferraro, with his 28th of the season, replied for Red Deer (17-25-1-7) in the second period.

Wheat Kings netminder Andrew Hayes stopped 35 shots through regulation and overtime, while Darcy Kuemper made 29 saves for the Rebels.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
