Wausau WI- RiverWolves took on the Coulee Region Chill Friday evening at Marathon Park Ice Arena in the first matchup of the season versus their Central Division foe.  The game itself was a game of runs as Wausau jumped out early only to watch the Chill attempt a comeback.  The first period was full of shots as Coulee outshot Wausau nearly by a 2:1 margin.  However, it was RiverWolves forward Tanner Eskro who scored his third of the season at the 13:27 mark in the first that put Wausau 1-0 after one period.

In the second, the shots began to even out some as Coulee outshot the RiverWolves by just three.  Still, the same trend continued as the RiverWolves were the ones to find the back of the net.  At the 1:27 mark of the period, Kasey Couture notched his first goal of the year to put Wausau up 2-0.  Ian Raddatz joined the scoring party as he added his first tally of the year to extend the RiverWolves’ lead to 3-0 at the 6:19 point in the period.  Coulee then switched out their goalie Gunnar Snyder in favor of Devin Naidow as they tried to slow down the RiverWolves.  The Chill were able to somewhat slow the momentum when their own Marco Escobar scored his third goal at the 13:03 mark.

The third period started out with a bang as each team scored within the first five minutes of action.  Coulee scored its second 17 seconds in courtesy of Sam VanderHoeven.  Wausau was able to respond at the 4:25 mark thanks to Jared Meyer etching his name into the score sheet.   The win improves Wausau to 1-5-1 while the Coulee Region Chill drop to 2-4 on the young season.

RiverWolves goaltender Tyler Klatt stopped 56 of 58 shots and received the victory.  Coulee used two goalies over the course of the game as Devin Naidow relieved starter Gunnar Snyder.  Snyder stopped 14 of 17 shots and took home the loss.  Naidow stopped 21 of 22 in relief duty.

Each season the RiverWolves recruit talented junior hockey players who show great potential to play at the college level, and beyond, who do not live within a reasonable driving distance of Marathon Park, in Wausau, WI. To take advantage of this great opportunity, the players need families willing to share their homes, and become a “home away from home” for them. The importance of the billet families to the RiverWolves organization is immeasurable. The players ages range from 16-20, players will be required to take classes in local colleges, or hold part time jobs while pursuing their hockey opportunities and dreams. In most cases, very strong bonds are made between the player and the billet family as well as with the player’s family. These relationships will often carry on for many years after the player has left the team. Often host families can be seen following the player during their college career. Our players will prove to be great role models for younger children in the host family, as they demonstrate hard work and determination to achieve tough goals.

What is expected of the host family?

The player needs a room of their own, or can share with a team member. They will need a bed, bureau and closet space. While players are expected to provide bed and bath linens, personal care items, cell phones, media equipment and take care of their own transportation needs (most have their own vehicle). The family is not required to cook for the players each day but would be asked to welcome the players to meals being cooked by the family when available. Players will be required to eat on their own when meals are not available. Simply put, the players must be able to be self-sufficient and able to cook and clean up for themselves.

What is expected of the players?

The players must adhere to all team and house rules and show respect and consideration toward all family members. Your generosity will not be taken for granted.

How long is a host family’s commitment?

This varies depending on the player. Some are with the family during the hockey season only. Others need to complete the school year. Some players go home for the weekend as often as the game schedule permits. All players go home over the holiday break, unless they are from a different country and are unable to make it home.

Families receive a monthly billeting payment for each player. Some have found it easier to house two players as they then travel together and are company for each other. Host families have included traditional 2-parent families, single-parent families and “empty-nesters” too. All that’s really needed is a willingness to help a player pursue their dream by providing a “home away from home”.

If you are interested in being a host family, please contact us today. Your willingness to share your home and family is all it takes, and you will truly make a difference in a player’s life.
