Brooks Maxwell's late goal helps Red Deer Rebels beat Swift Current Broncos 3-2

SWIFT CURRENT, Sask. - Brooks Maxwell scored his first goal of the season late in regulation to lift the Red Deer Rebels to a 3-2 win over the host Swift Current Broncos in Western Hockey League play Tuesday.

Maxwell scored a power-play goal with 2:30 left in the third, stealing a game the Broncos had tied earlier in the period.

The Rebels (4-5-1) also had goals from rookie defenceman Haydn Fleury, with his first WHL goal, and Matt Bellerive.

Swift Current (3-1-4) replied with goals from rookie Tanner LeSann and Graham Black.

Rebels goaltender Patrik Bartosak stopped 29-of-31 shots. Broncos goalie Eetu Laurikainen allowed all three goals on 32 shots.

Quote of the Day

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
