Wausau, WI- RiverWolves took on the Oregon Tradesmen Friday evening at the Marathon Park Ice Arena , which opened their home slate. Wausau was coming off a 8-1 loss to the same Tradesman the previous Friday night. The action was back and forth between both teams, leaving the end of the first period scoreless. RiverWolves goalie Joseph La Forge faced 17 shots through the end of the first period, while Wausau only recorded five.

Wausau got on scoreboard first with a goal from forward Isaac Wickersheim  at the  4:17 mark of the second. This was Wickersheim’s second goal of the season in as many games. As the second period came to an end, La Forge continued to remain solid between the pipes. The second period came to an end with the RiverWolves leading 1-0.

As the RiverWolves looked to close the last 20 minutes of action, RiverWolves forward Max Beste scored the second goal of the night  with an assist from forward Caeden Phelps. This moved the RiverWolves up to 2-0 at the 14:44 mark. RiverWolves goalie Joseph La Forge continued his solid play in the final frame, delivering an incredible performance as he saved a total of 55 shots.

(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

Joseph La Forge, native of Kenosha, Wisconsin is expected to start in net for the RiverWolves.

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

(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.

Full Roster

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.
