The Fort Saskatchewan Junior B Rebels offence was held to a minimum in their first game.
Fort Sask welcomed the Edmonton Warriors to town for their first tune-up before the 2018 regular season on Thursday night (Apr.12).
The Rebels got behind early, but head coach John Lintz saw some positives.
"We've got a little bit more veteran offence and I thought they moved the ball well, plus our goaltending was solid."
Minor penalties hurt the Rebels as they took 26 minutes worth, along with allowing a handful of short handed goals in the 11-7 loss.
Ethan Wong and Colton Pederson led the way upfront with two goals each.
Jacob Parent and Jackson Freeman split the game between the pipes.
"We just have to continuing to build each game that we play in terms of ball movement and the speed that we play at," added Lintz.
The Rebels hosted a mini tournament at the DCC on Sunday (Apr.15). Fort Saskatchewan lost again 11-9 against the Warriors, but they bounced back with a 10-6 win over St Albert.
The regular season starts on Apr.27, when the Fort welcome Sherwood Park to the JRC.
