This weekend, Wisconsin Rapids’ newly launched junior hockey team- The Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings, will play their second home game stretch of the 2014/2015 season, by hosting the Illiana Blackbirds at the South Wood County Recreation Center. Game Time will be at 7:30PM tonight (Friday,11/7/2014) where I have the honor of dropping the ceremonial puck to start the game. The Riverkings take the ice again at 7:30PM tomorrow (11/8/2014); and the Riverkings will close out their home stretch with a game at 12:00PM on Sunday (11/9/2014). Tickets are available at the door for only $5 for adults and $2 for anyone under 18.
The Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings are a Junior Hockey Team within the Minnesota Junior Hockey League. The Riverkings are in their inaugural season, with “home ice” being the South Wood County Recreation Center. As we begin our inaugural season in the Junior Hockey Organization, we have much to be proud of with our team and to look forward to this season and beyond.
