The Boston schools, CC, LSSU and Miami are solid. And now that there's a playoff the football team is going to schedule quality competition. No more FCS schools, Alabama next year, trying to schedule LSU the year after.

Notable Badgers in the NHL:

Ryan Suter by far led The Wild in defensive scoring and tied for second in scoring among all d-men behind PK Subban. He is up for the Norris Trophy and should win given that he's superior in his own zone over the other two candidates. It's no surprise Shea Weber lost his luster when Suter bolted.

Kyle Turris tied for the scoring lead on The Sens this year. He left Madison a little early but is developing into a very good all-around player.

Justin Schultz led the NHL in rookie scoring by a defenseman. He's on a team loaded with young talent and you can see the signs he's already developing into an elite NHL player.

Brendan Smith is developing with the Wings the same way he did with the Badgers: careless gambles that make fans pull their hair out but showing some of the flashes of brilliance that are yet to come. Smitty had some tough outings in the series against the Ducks but has been pretty steady against The Hawks.

Smitty is joined by Ryan McDonagh, Kyle Turris, Joe Pavelski, Adam Burish and Derek Stepan as Badgers still in the cup hunt. there were too many to list in the first round. The deep 2006 and 2010 Badger teams are well represented in the NHL playoffs.



Speaking of the 2006 team; how deep were they? Since Benny Street was called up to Calgary An eye-popping 11 players from the championship team have played in the NHL. I'll list the regulars in capital letters and the ones who saw limited time in lower case:

ADAM BURISH and JOE PAVELSKI, San Jose (2/3 of the top line!)
robbie earl, toronto and minnesota
andrew joudrey, 1 game with columbus
joe piskula, LA
DAVIS drewiske, up and down with LA but now a regular with Montreal
jake dowell, Chicago and Minnesota
JACK SKILLE, Florida (who can forget the triple OT goal against Cornell?)
TOM GILBERT, Minnesota (game winning goal for the title against BC, baby!)
BEN STREET, now a regular with Calgary
BRIAN ELLIOT, St. Louis. Probably the biggest imapact player from the 06 team.

I'm not sure but I don't think another college team has sent that many players to the show...or major junior teams for that matter. The jist of this post is that Badger Hockey is awesome. Best of luck to all Badgers still pursuing The Cup (especially Smitty; bring it home to The D!)

Oh yeah, I would be remiss not mentioning Craig Smith's strong performance at this year's IIHF World Tourney. Smith finished second in scoring for team USA behind fellow WCHA alum Paul Stastny. Smith ramps it up when he puts on the U-S and A sweater! His strong performance at The World's a couple years ago was probably what propelled him to bolt Madison earlier than expected.

I've been saying for years that Weber was more a product of Suter than vice versa. This year vindicated that a bit.

Looks like we'll have another prospect with the Badgers, next year. I hope Kerdiles and Besse put in good performances for you guys.

With a nod to Wisconsin-Eau Claire's 2013 NCAA Division III Men's Ice Hockey championship, as well as the hometown of current Badger assistant captains in senior forward Jefferson Dahl and junior defenseman Jake McCabe, the Wisconsin Badgers will use their first official day of practice for the 2013-14 season with their Red-White scrimmage in Eau Claire, Wis.

Skating at Hobbs Ice Center on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 1 p.m., the Badgers will start with 30 minutes of practice, then follow with two officiated 20-minute periods. An autograph session with the men's hockey team will follow.

The 2013-14 Wisconsin men's hockey season marks the first year of Big Ten hockey. UW enters the season after a four-month surge that culminated in the program's 12th and final WCHA playoff championship.

Pre-sale tickets for the Red-White Scrimmage go on sale Monday, Aug. 19 for $15. Tickets will cost $20 at the door. A total of 1,500 tickets will be available. All proceeds will benefit the UW-Eau Claire men's hockey program.

University of Wisconsin women’s hockey assistant coach Jackie Friesen recently returned to Madison after helping the Team Canada’s Under-18 National Team to a three-game series victory over the U.S. Women’s National Under-18 squad.

Friesen served as an assistant coach for Canada’s U-18 squad during a week-long camp before a three-game set against the United States at Lake Placid, N.Y.

Winning seasons are nice, league championships are even better. In the end, the only team sincerely happy is one skating around the rink with the NCAA championship trophy raised above their heads. When you're a program of Wisconsin's prestige, that's the goal heading into every season.

So, is this team good enough?

The peaks and valleys of the Mike Eaves coaching have been drastic at times. The Badgers have played in two national championship games -- winning one -- but have also missed the NCAA tournament five times during Eaves' 11-year tenure.

Wisconsin appears to be on the upswing heading into the 2013-14 campaign, coming off one of the best finishes in program history a season ago in which they won the Broadmoor Trophy as WCHA tournament champions.

Prior to last season, Eaves told the media in a preseason press conference the next two years were important in terms of striking while the iron is hot.

"If you look at history, you would say these are the two years we need to harvest our crop, so to speak," Eaves said. "That's what we need to do."
IMO, the schedule sets up well for the Badgers with the move to the B1G. No longer will they face North Dakota or Denver and they will no longer have to make the trek to Alaska, which was always a trap series.
Not to mention some of the new B1G foes arent much of a match for the Badgers. Michigan and Minnesota should be tough matchups but Penn State, Michigan State and Ohio State arent on the Badgers' level

You're forgetting that Penn State beat the Badgers back on Feb. 25. I'm not saying that PSU will roll over the Badgers this coming season, but I do think you're underestimating the Nittany Lions, my friend.

UW is joined in the top-five by UMass-Lowell (No.1), Miami (No. 2), Boston College (No. 4) and North Dakota (No. 5). Minnesota, Notre Dame, Michigan, Providence, and Minnesota State round out the top-10, in that order.

Wisconsin has been chosen as the preseason favorite for the inaugural season of Big Ten hockey as voted on by the coaches, the conference announced on Thursday. The coaches also selected a Preseason Players to Watch list, with four Badgers leading the way.

The Badgers won 22 games last season and advanced to the NCAA tournament, finishing up its time as a member of the WCHA by capturing the 2013 WCHA Final Five. The Badgers return nine seniors and six juniors, the most upperclassmen on their roster since the 2009-10 squad that reached the 2010 NCAA Championship Game. The Badgers also return 81.3 percent of their goal scoring (91 of 112 goals) and 78.9 percent of their points (239 of 303 points) for the 2013-14 campaign.

Minnesota was voted to finish second this season, with Michigan picked for third, Michigan State and Ohio State projected to tie for fourth and Penn State rounding out the poll.

The University of Wisconsin Women's hockey team started the 2013-14 season on a high note, claiming a 3-0 triumph over Team Japan in an exhibition contest at the LaBahn Arena Monday night.

This was the first match ever held between the Badgers and Team Japan, a team that will compete in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. UW head coach Mark Johnson said competing against a squad like Japan was a unique and valuable opportunity for Wisconsin, who held its first practice of the season on Saturday.

"Japan played hard through it and made things difficult in a lot of areas," Johnson said. "Having an exhibition game is much better than having practice because you can't duplicate what we went through tonight."

Hopefully the extra week for the team to lick their wounds from the Boston beatdown (probably the worst sports weekend of my life with The Tigers, Wings and Lions all losing as well) will help. Gotta get things ramped up with Miami and the Goofs on the horizon.

he Wisconsin men's hockey team has gotten used to breaks early in this 2013-14 season with all its bye weeks, however nobody has had a longer one than junior goaltender Joel Rumpel (Swift Current, Saskatchewan), who went 35 days between games because of a leg injury. The absence was hardly noticable last Saturday at No. 8 Miami, but his play was as Rumpel made 32 saves in a 3-2 Badger victory. The performance was recognized by the Big Ten as Rumpel was named first star of the week by the Conference, one of three goalies honored this week.
