For the Rapids City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – The Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings announced the signing of Alaskan native Tanner Dey.
Coach Marty Quarters said, “Tanner was a player we identified early into our recruiting process because of his skill, ice vision and pass-first ability, size, and his hard shot inside the dots.
“We also felt Tanner’s strong character and desire to work hard to achieve his goals fits the Riverkings culture and will be a welcome addition on the ice and in our community”.
Tanner played for the Wenatchee Wild U18 last season and was third in points and second in assists. This is the same organization that produced top returning defenseman Raymond Fleming.
Tanner will be interning for his state legislature in Washington, D.C. this summer before arriving in Rapids at the end of August.
