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

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
