Harrison Nagel Harrison Nagel

Harrison Nagel began his playing career in Mound, MN, where he played through high school. He was a four-year letter winner, a two-year all conference winner, and a one-year all conference honorable mention. After his freshman year, he was coached by NHL defenseman Nate Schmidt at Phase 5 of the Minnesota High Performance Program, which included a week-long camp in St. Cloud with the top 102 ranked skaters in Minnesota. As a senior, he was a Reed Larson award finalist for the top defenseman in the state. In 2018, he joined the North Iowa Bulls of the NA3HL and helped bring the team to a divisional championship and to the Fraser Cup semifinals. During the offseason, Hank was drafted by the Minnesota Magicians in the 2019 NAHL entry-level draft. Unfortunately, he sustained an injury during offseason training that required multiple surgeries and ended his playing career. In the past few years, he has been a scout for the North Iowa Bulls as they transitioned to the NAHL. Now, as a recent graduate from the University of Minnesota with a major in accounting and finance, Hank is excited to continue his hockey career as an assistant coach for the Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings.

The Riverkings are excited to have both coaches be a part of our junior hockey program and to get to experience this special community with us.
