The Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings are pleased to announce the addition of two new players, Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, native Austin Luxford, and Lithuania U20 National member, Simas Gorelis. Both players are a welcome addition as the Riverkings get ready for an end-of-season push heading into the playoffs. With the recent addition of French player Adrien Sebag, all three will ensure that the Riverkings remain one of the elite teams in the MnJHL.
Welcome to the team, guys!

Riverkings players recently participated in the Kiwanis Youth Outdoors Day at Lake Nepco in Wisconsin Rapids. The boys had a great time joining in on a little bit of pond hockey and broom ball, as well as helping youth learn how to skate.
A thank you goes out to the South Wood County Recreation Center rink manager, Jim Arnold, for helping our boys to connect with this great event!
The Riverkings extended their win streak to six with a 3-game sweep of the St. Louis Frontenacs the weekend of January 9th. This brings their season record to 24-6-0 (.800). With nine games left on their schedule, each series against teams with a record below .500, the Riverkings look to stay on top of the Central Division Standings.
The successful advancement of league goal leader Tyler Harkins to the BCHL shows the Riverkings have proven they are able to develop players to succeed at higher levels. Harkins accounted for over 25% of the teams goals this season and his 35 goals remains the best in the MnJHL even since his departure.
The Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings, a Junior Hockey Team within the Minnesota Junior Hockey League, began operations on May 1st, 2014. The Riverkings call the South Wood County Recreation Center in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin, home ice.
As our inaugural season begins, what better place than the Wisconsin Rapids area and its surrounding communities to make us one of the premier Junior Hockey organizations in the United States.
Led by Head Coach Marty Quarters, a man with drive, determination, and devotion, the Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings look forward to many successful seasons while focusing on the development and advancement of our players to the next level. As the previous Head Coach of the 2013-2014 Central Wisconsin Saints (CWS), Coach Quarters surpassed all records in CWS team history. Part of that phenomenal, record-breaking season, eight of Coach Quarters' players committed to college play after skating under his tutelage...
There's a reason why everyone else is just bait...
