For the second straight year, the Red Deer Rebels plan to wrap up their Western Hockey League preseason in Stettler.

For the second straight year, the Red Deer Rebels plan to wrap up their Western Hockey League preseason in Stettler.

The Rebels announced last week that they’ll go up against the Medicine Hat Tigers on Saturday, Sept. 15, at the Stettler Recreation Centre. Game-time is 7:30 p.m.

It’s the final date on the Rebels’ six-game preseason schedule, which begins with games Sept. 1 and 2 at the Edmonton Oil Kings’ tournament in St. Albert.

The Stettler game, held in co-operation with the Stettler Minor Hockey Association, is just one night after the Rebels meet the defending WHL champion Oil Kings at Lacombe on Sept. 14.

In their Stettler exhibition game last September, Red Deer lost 3-1 to Medicine Hat in front of 1,089 fans.

The Rebels open their 2012-13 regular season Friday, Sept. 21, at home against the Calgary Hitmen.

Red Deer’s training camp begins with on-ice sessions Sunday, Aug. 26, at the Centrium. The Black-and-White intrasquad game is slated for Wednesday, Aug. 29, in a 7 p.m. start at the Centrium.
