2017–18 season[edit]

After beginning the season with a tenth-place finish at the 2017 CS Nebelhorn Trophy, Ruest and Wolfe did not compete on the Grand Prix. The finished sixth at the 2018 Canadian Championships. As the top three finishers were sent to the 2018 Winter Olympics, Ruest and Wolfe earned their first ISU Championship assignment, the 2018 Four Continents Championships in Taipei, where they finished seventh.

Following the retirement of Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford, they were sent to the 2018 World Championships in Milan, where they finished eighteenth. They later credited the experience of competing at the World Championships as motivating them to keep improving.[5]
