What better way to celebrate the weekend than by catching a game with the Peoria Rivermen? The city of Peoria is full of opportunities for family fun, so we hope to see you!


The Peoria Rivermen have consistently played hockey at a high level.

Their play translated to the league’s best attendance for consecutive seasons.


We promise top-notch entertainment day in and day out. If you're looking for indoor activities or must-see destinations in Peoria IL, look no further than Carver Arena, home of the Rivermen.

About Rivermen Hockey

Professional hockey has had a home in Peoria since the 1982-1983 season, when the team began play as the Peoria Prancers of the International Hockey League. Not too long ago, unexpected circumstances forced the Rivermen to rebuild our brand from the ground up, but we came back stronger than ever. Our fans have been a large part of that, helping the team rise to the top of the league in attendance.


The Rivermen had yet another historic season in 2015-2016. The team rode a league-high 14-game streak through December and January, propelled by strong defense and lockdown goaltending from two-time SPHL Goalie of the Year Kyle Rank. The team finished with 39 wins and their second consecutive regular season title. The team swept the Fayetteville FireAntz in the semifinals, allowing a record zero goals in the entire series.


Our fans are a huge part of our success. We wouldn't be a league leader in attendance if it wasn't for our passionate fans. That's why we want to pay them back with top-notch entertainment and family fun.
