(Wausau, WI)- The Wausau RiverWolves have announced their 2020-21 roster as the fast approaching home opener is now just 8 days away. During the off season the team significantly upgraded their play making ability with two players that have local ties. Max Beste (Mosinee) and Isaac Wickersheim (Antigo) put up a combined 200 points during their high school careers. Both will look to take that success into their junior hockey careers. The roster has players from seven states including Illinois, Kentucky Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Utah, Wisconsin and three players from Canada.
The team also returns their top scorer from a year ago in forward Kasey Couture who notched 15 goals and 23 assists.
Head Coach Colin Bailey likes the new look of his roster for the upcoming season, which begins Friday night in Janesville. “We are only returning four players from last year so we have practically an entirely new roster. One of our goals in the off season was to increase the depth at every position and I believe that we did a great job expanding depth at each position. We have players who can put the puck in the net, along with some great defenseman to help round out our roster,” said Bailey. “With a solid core of returning veterans and a talented group of incoming players this should be a season full of excitement. We are looking forward to developing these young players into good hockey players on-ice and excellent members of the community during their time in Central Wisconsin,” Head Coach Colin Bailey stated.
