The Peoria Rivermen opened the on-ice portion of their first SPHL training camp on Monday, October 14. It was the first of seven practice sessions during camp, which are each open to the public and free of charge. 

 

Training camp will continue on October 15, when players return to the ice for two sessions each day October 15-17. Those sessions include a morning practice and afternoon scrimmage, and will prepare the Rivermen for their first exhibition game against the Bloomington Thunder on Friday, October 18. Peoria will then head to Bloomington on Saturday, October 19, for their second and final exhibition match.
