Rock open season strong


While it might still be very early in the season, the fortunes of the Rimbey Rock appear to have taken a dramatic turn since last year. Prior to this past weekend’s action, the Rock found themselves in first place in the Heritage Junior B Hockey League’s North Division with a 2-0 record. Further, the Rock leads the league with the highest offensive output averaging 7.5 goals per game, they lead the league with the stingiest defense allowing just 1.5 goals per game and feature the league’s top scorer in the form of Wyatt Fraser with two goals and four assists in two games. And if that isn’t enough, the Rock are also setting the pace when it comes to the rough stuff as they lead the league in penalty minutes by a wide margin. Pictured above, Rock players Davin Waisanen and Blaine Teeuwsen storm the net during the team’s home opener on Oct. 2 when they pummelled the Ponoka Stampeders 8-2.
