TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – RED DEER REBELS
The two-time defending league champions earned their third straight South Division regular season title and finished atop the Alberta Midget Hockey League standings for the second year in a row, two points up on the Leduc Oil Kings, the 2012 TELUS Cup hosts. One of just three teams to allow less than 100 goals, the Rebels were paced by the one-two combination of goaltenders Dasan Sydora and Matthew Zentner, who both finished in the top 10 in goals against average, with Sydora’s 1.76 GAA leading the way. Red Deer finished second in the South Division in goals, scoring 165 times, and had just one player finish in the top 10 in scoring – Ty Mappin’s 41 points were good for seventh.
