The RiverKings and Head Coach/Director of Hockey Operations Derek Landmesser announced two upcoming exhibition games. The pair of games scheduled for October 13 and October 15, sees the RiverKings square up against the Huntsville Havoc, a rematch of last postseason's first-round battle.

Beginning on the road at the Von Braun Center, the RiverKings will look to take down the Havoc; a team that boasted the highest scoring offense a season ago.
