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

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
