Wisconsin Riverkings’ Kyle Cupolo and Will Tricarico were named as two of the USPHL Players of the Month for January in the Midwest West Division.
William Tricarico, Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings
Tricarico (‘02/East Isle, N.Y.) has been a key to the offense on the Riverkings and in January he didn’t just lead his team, he led the entire division. Beginning with the Tampa Showcase, Tricarico and the Riverkings played 11 times in the opening month of 2023. Tricarico scored a dozen and set up another 10, leading the division in points per game with an even two. Those points accelerated his season pace a bit and Tricarico enters the final month of the regular season with a team-leading 30 goals and 49 points.
Kyle Cupolo, Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings
Cupolo (‘03/Waterloo, Ont.) enjoyed a breakout month in January as well, collecting six goals and 19 points for the Riverkings and showing his ability in his own end as well. Cupolo wrapped up a +17 rating in what turned into a big turnaround month for the Riverkings. The young defender knew when to step it up as well, scoring two game winners including in the team’s most recent game, at Isanti. The Riverkings enter the final month on a hot streak and Cupolo has played a part in the team’s current four-game winning streak and wins in seven of its last eight.
