Peoria Rivermen

Celebrating their 40 Anniversary of Hockey being played in the “River City” in 2021, originally the team was called the Peoria Prancers (1982-83) and was sold to Bruce Saurs in 1984 when the name changed to the Peoria Rivermen as a result of a contest conducted by the Peoria Journal Star.  Saurs owned the team for 19 seasons and won the Turner Cup (they were in the IHL at that time) that first season.  The team held professional hockey’s longest winning streak with 18 games in 1991. A member of the Southern Professional Hockey League, the Rivermen offer season tickets, group tickets as well as individual game tickets which are available at the Rivermen office located inside the Peoria Civic Center, by calling 309-676-1040 or online at
