Beer and Sheehan visit Spring Hill Elementary

MEMPHIS, Tenn - Mississippi RiverKings forward Matt Beer and Goaltender Garett Sheehan visited Spring Hill elementary to congratulate students on their stellar participation in the RiverKings Readers program.

Beer and Sheehan read to the students and then fielded questions, including ones about their class' upcoming trip to the Lander's Center for Tuesday's Face-Off Field Trip. Players were also accompanied by RiverKings Mascot RiverThing, who helped the players sign autographs and take pictures. Mrs. Anderson's fourth grade class won both November and December's RiverKings Readers contest, and continues to excel in their reading hours.

The RiverKings return to Concorde Career College Ice at the Landers Center on Friday, January 22 at 7:05 p.m. in a rematch against the Louisiana IceGators. It's the annual Dachshund Dash presented by Autobahn Indoor Speedway. Come for the hockey and stay for our wiener dog races on ice during the first intermission.
