Riverkings concluded their open tryout camp in-conjunction with other teams (Chicago Cougars and Dells Ducks) from our ownership group and it was a great success with over 100 players/goalies attending Leafs Centre in West Dundee IL last weekend.
The Riverkings are proud to announce the signing of Payton Cater a 01 forward from the Dallas Blackhawks U16 AAA team. This is the third player from the Blackhawks (their former coach Shaun Falzone who is now a scout for the RK’s) to be joining the Riverkings. Payton was a surprise addition to an impressive group of forward already under contract for this coming season. Coach Quarters said: Our staff went into tryouts looking for 2-3 Defenseman as we prepare to complete our roster, but Payton speed and skill jumped out at us and really fits our style of play. Playing alongside returning forward (Rich Young) and the success they had made our decision very simple in offering Payton a contract. Payton showed speed, skill, and a high compete level added in with his strong character which will allow him to be a perfect fit on and off the ice.
Welcome to the Riverkings family!!
