Sure to be a thriller, this weekend the Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings (18-6-0-0) play host to the Wooster Oilers (17-8-0-2), and it looks to be a matchup that won't easily be forgotten... Both teams are looking to take control of the top spot in the MnJHL Central Division.

In partnership with Toys For Tots, the Riverkings are sponsoring a toy drive this weekend.

As a special bonus, everyone who brings a toy will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a Riverkings T-Shirt. Bring those toys people! We need more cowbell! A big thank to Visit Wisconsin Rapids for their cowbell donation!

This coming Wednesday, the Riverkings join the Cross Ice Mites and their families for a little bit of pizza and some Christmas fun!
A little bit of glue… Perhaps some google eyes and buttons… Maybe even a few carrots and a little dab of coal… Who knows what the kids and the Riverkings will come up with?
It's sure to make the parents walk away with a smile!
Time to think outside the box and truly see the big picture of what's happing in our community… It's just another glimpse at what the Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings are doing to help Build Hockey Up and Down the River…
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...
Encouraging the next generation in Wisconsin Rapids!
