By Wisconsin Rapid Riverkings Staff, 07/08/18, 6:30PM EDT


Riverkings find diamond in the rough from Prout Rhode Island HS in 01 forward Kyle Smith. 

The 6’ 175 forward comes from the same summer program (run by George Maris @CHC) that produced RK’s Jake Nitsche, Dylan Torres, and Xander Mavrogiannis. 

Coach Quarters said: “When former Riverking Jake Michael Nitsche called me and said he found a forward in Rhode Island that can not only help us but we can also help him and that he fits our aggressive style of play, I tend to listen. Kyle is a hard forechecking player who excels at puck protection, speed, ice vision, and a stoic but passionate approach. After meeting with Kyle and his Dad it was obvious their hard working background fits our culture and felt Kyle is a perfect fit. Kyle no nonsense style of play and work ethic has our staff feeling we have found a diamond in the rough and will be a welcome addition to our team”.

Kyle will be attending Lincoln HS this fall.


Welcome to the Riverkings family!!
