Charles Inglis scores twice to lead Red Deer Rebels past Kootenay Ice 3-2

CRANBROOK, B.C. - Charles Inglis scored twice as the Red Deer Rebels rallied to beat the Kootenay Ice 3-2 in Western Hockey League play Sunday.

Defenceman Kevin Pochuk also scored for the Rebels (6-7-2), while Patrik Bartosak made 30 saves in net.

Collin Shirley and Jaedon Descheneau each scored for the Ice (4-7-0), and Wyatt Hoflin stopped 28 shots.

Kootenay opened the scoring 7:43 into the first period when Shirley put a rebound from Descheneau past Bartosak for the early lead.

Descheneau made it 2-0 just over two minutes into the second with a long wrist shot that found its way to the far low corner.

But Red Deer's rally started just 1:46 later when Pochuk jumped on a loose puck in the slot and fired a slap shot past Hoflin.

Inglis tied the game in the second on the power play as the Rebels caught Kootenay on a line change. That gave Red Deer a 5-on-2 breakaway with Inglis scoring on a rebound.

Then in the third, Inglis added the decisive goal on another power-play rebound to put the Rebels ahead for good.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
