Hockey began in Wausau on the Wisconsin River in the mid 1920's. Wausau attracted the top teams including major university teams in the Midwest to their annual Winter Frolic. The Wausau Vets faced this competition with remarkable success.
A strong high school team with an enviable win streak in the late 1930's provided a steady stream of players for the Vets. This is the story of the Wausau Vets and the early history of Wausau Hockey.
