The Espanola Rivermen are a Tier II Jr. "A" hockey club, playing in the CIHL league. The Rivermen have incredible support from the community, including Manitoulin Island and the North Shore. The Rivermen had a strong finish last year including leading the league in attendance in their inaugural season in Espanola. The Rivermen have set the standards higher for the following season and look to continue their winning ways in the community both on and off the ice. We are dedicated to developing student-athletes & members of our hockey club into becoming quality players on the ice and even better community leaders off the ice. Our goal is to provide a junior hockey opportunity that provides a passionate life experience for each one of our team members, including kids & players from throughout North America as well as area local community members involved directly or indirectly with our team. We consider our club to be one big family that includes each of our players, our off-ice team, volunteers and our fans. We believe in family & we take care of our family first.
