If they ever drop the puck on the Michigan High School Athletic Association 2020-21 hockey season, one thing is clear: Riverview will be one of the best teams Downriver.

The Bucs kind of arrived a year early in 2019-20 putting together a great regular season before falling to city rival Gabriel Richard in the regional championship game at the Yack.

Riverview was led by two of the most dynamic players in the state last season – Ryan Herzog and Gavin Holmes – and both of those guys will be back this year for their senior seasons.

Add to the mix three senior defensemen playing in front of junior goalie Josiah Dembrosky, who has a full season of starting under his belt and you can see why the Bucs will be a dangerous team for anyone to handle.

Like everyone else in the high school world, the Bucs have had their season paused and the future is unclear. Currently the high school hockey season is scheduled to begin after the first of the year.

After having the end of the playoff cancelled last spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic, teams are anxious to get back on the ice and get back to a semblance of normalcy.
