(WAUSAU, WI)- Hockey is back at Marathon Park Ice Arena as the RiverWolves open their 2020-21 home schedule at 7:10 PM tonight versus the newly formed Oregon Tradesmen. Wausau is looking to bounce back from last weekends loss to the Tradesmen. Tickets for tonight’s game are sold out. There will be no walk-up sales available. Tickets for our next home game will go on sale beginning Monday at 10am via riverwolveshockey.com.
What to Watch For
RiverWolves forward Isaac Wickersheim scored his first NA3HL goal last weekend vs Oregon. Wickersheim, from Antigo, WI, tallied 84 points in 96 games throughout his high school career, netting 45 goals. Look for him to contribute in a big way in the offensive zone. Keep an eye out for newly acquired forward Caeden Phelps from the Alexandria Blizzard. The skilled forward signed a NAHL tender agreement with the Northeast Generals this past winter and will be a welcomed addition to the top line.
The Tradesmen are led by Ethan McCormack, who was last weeks NA3HL Central Star of the Week. McCormack tallied 3 goals and 4 total points in two games while helping The Tradesmen start 2-0 in the league.
Between the Pipes

The Tradesmen are expected to start Leo Lapata in net Friday night. Lapata is a native of Evanston, Illinois.
