Recent Performances: Last week, the Rapids set the tone for their home opener with a nail-biting overtime victory against the Glengarry Pipers, leaving 518 fans on the edge of their seats. Meanwhile, the Rivermen faced a tough challenge in a high-scoring match against the Bytown Royals, ending in a 13-10 loss. Both teams are hungry for success, and this game promises to be a battle worth witnessing.

A Historic Rivalry Begins: This matchup isn't just another game; it's the start of a heated rivalry that's set to ignite the 2023-24 season. As division rivals, the Rapids and the Rivermen will clash four times this season, ensuring plenty of intense moments on the ice. Adding to the drama, the Rapids acquired four key players – Cole Peck, Ryan Peck, Luke Peck, and Carter Peck – from the Rivermen at the start of the season. These four Pecks were instrumental in Arnprior's success last year, with Ryan Peck leading the team in scoring and Cole Peck earning the title of best defenseman. Carter and Luke also made significant contributions in their rookie season. With history in the making, expect sparks to fly as they face their former team.

Fan Engagement: Our fans are the heartbeat of the Rapids, and we've got some special treats in store for you this Saturday! Janet Egan will kick off the evening with a heartfelt rendition of O'Canada, setting the stage for an unforgettable game. During intermission, don't miss out on the chuck-a-puck event – your chance to test your accuracy and win some fantastic prizes! And the excitement doesn't stop there; we'll have a 50/50 draw with last week's lucky winner walking away with around $1100. Who knows, you could be the next lucky winner!
