Wisconsin Badgers '10-'11

With the season starting in a little over a week, I figured it was time to start the new season thread.

Wisconsin men's hockey officially opens practice for the 2010-11 season on Saturday, Oct. 2, and the team is welcoming fans to come watch.

Come see UW's 10 freshmen, and the returning Badgers from a team that reached the 2010 NCAA Championship Game, in their its first public appearance of the season. UW will play a free Red-White scrimmage beginning at 4 p.m., at the Kohl Center. The scrimmage precedes the Badger women's hockey team's contest against Rensselaer. The women's game against the Engineers begins at 7 p.m., and fans can stick around to catch free Badger women's hockey action.

The University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team has been picked to finish second in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, according to a preseason poll of league coaches.

Wisconsin earned 43 points and two first place votes in a poll of the eight head coaches in the WCHA. Defending national champions Minnesota Duluth was selected to win the WCHA title, earning 48 points and six first place votes. Minnesota was picked to finish third with 37 points.

Ohio State was selected to finish fourth, followed by North Dakota, Bemidji State, St. Cloud State and Minnesota State.
Hopefully they are right. Last season was a difficult one to take. After having the ladies win the NCAA championship in '06, '07 and '09; it was so strange for them to not make the NCAA tournament at all last season.

The 2010-11 USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine men's hockey preseason rankings were released on Monday, September 27, and the Wisconsin men found themselves at 13.
The Badgers finished last season ranked number 2 after posting a 28-11-14 record and finishing as the NCAA runner-up. After losing 10 players from last year's squad, and replacing them with 10 new freshmen, the Badgers fell in the rankings due to the uncertainty of how this year's squad will react to all the new faces.

The University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team is ranked No. 5 in both the USCHO.com preseason national poll and the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine preseason national rankings.

Wisconsin earned 87 points to land at No. 5 in the USCHO.com poll, trailing Minnesota Duluth, Cornell, Mercyhurst and Minnesota in the top four, respectively. The Badgers picked up 115 points in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll, and UW is the highest-ranked team that ended the 2009-10 season unranked.
Looks like the ladies might make things interesting this season.

I think the ranking is a little low considering they are getting their head coach and half of Team USA back this year. Hanging a 4th banner after this year wouldn't be much of a shocker.

Wisconsin men’s hockey program announced its television schedule for the 2010-11 season on Wednesday. Currently, 20 regular-season games are scheduled for live broadcasts.

In addition to the live broadcasts, 13 of the 20 television contests will also air on a tape-delayed basis by Wisconsin Public Television. Those games will air on either Wisconsin Public Television or the Wisconsin Channel.

FSN Wisconsin will show 10 regular-season contests live, while FSN is also slated to carry the WCHA Final Five. WISC-TV and TVW 14 in Madison will air three games each, while Big Ten Network will carry two contests and Charter Extra will pick up two road games to complete the live coverage.

The live games on WISC-TV and TVW 14 will also air live around the state of Wisconsin on Charter Extra and Time Warner Sports. Additionally, those outside Wisconsin can watch those contests via live web stream at UWBadgers.com for a fee.

In addition to television coverage, six games will stream live at bigtennetwork.com for a fee, while one other game will stream exclusively at UWBadgers.com, also for a fee.

Calling the action again this season for the Badgers will be longtime hockey play-by-play voice Paul Braun. Adding color to the live telecasts will be former Badger Rob Andringa. Tape-delayed telecasts will see Robb Vogel on play-by-play and rotating color analyst duties between former Badger greats Ron Vincent and Theran Welsh.
For those who arent able to be at the Kohl, theres still plenty of options to watch the games.
Im glad that channel 14 will be showing some of the games. Currently they are showing lots of local highschool football games on Fridays and I was a little concerned that Badger hockey wouldnt be on this year.

he No. 5 Wisconsin women's hockey team opens the 2010-11 season this weekend, hosting Rensselaer Polytechnic at the Kohl Center on Friday and Saturday nights. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 p.m. both games.
Friday's game marks the first-ever meeting between UW and RPI in women's hockey. The last time the Badgers faced an ECAC Hockey opponent was when UW defeated Dartmouth, 7-0, in the 2009 NCAA Regional contest. Wisconsin is 18-7-1 all-time against ECAC Hockey teams.
Scouting the opponent: Rensselaer Polytechnic
Under the direction of head coach John Burke, RPI returns 15 letterwinners from a 2009-10 team that went 16-15-6 overall and tied for fifth in ECAC Hockey with an 11-7-4 league record.

The Engineers return two goaltenders from a year ago, including senior Sonja van der Bliek, who posted a 15-15-5 record with a 1.85 goals against average - which ranked 12th among Division I goalies - last season. In addition to stopping 817 of 884 shots for a .924 save percentage, she recorded 30 or more saves in five games, including two contests with 40+ stops.

Rensselaer returns nine forwards, led by senior captain Kendra Dunlop. She tallied nine goals with 12 assists for 21 points in 2009-10. Dunlop scored a goal and assisted on two others as RPI fell just short of erasing a four-goal deficit in the final period, falling to eventual NCAA runner-up Cornell, 5-4.

RPI has made appearances in three of the last four ECAC Hockey Playoffs and looks to earn the program's first trip to the NCAA Tournament this season.
Im predicting the Badgers win this series easily. RPI is a good team but they arent in the same league as the Badgers, IMO. Im thinking the final score both nights will end up being something like 5-0 or 6-1. The Badgers just have too much depth and too much talent.

The No. 5 University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team scored five goals in the first period en route to a 7-0 season-opening victory over Rensselaer Polytechnic at the Kohl Center on Friday night.

Wisconsin (1-0-0) received two goals apiece from junior Carolyne Prevost (Sarnia, Ontario) and freshman Brittany Ammerman (River Vale, N.J.). Sophomore Brianna Decker (Dousman, Wis.) led the team with three points on three assists.

“It is nice to have a game under our belt,” head coach Mark Johnson said. “The whole object of this thing is to try and get better for tomorrow night’s game and continue that form for next weekend. Overall, there were a lot of good things. We did make some mistakes, but we seemed to recover.”
Great performance by the ladies last night. RPI never knew what hit 'em.
The Badgers simply outskated, outshot and outplayed RPI.

In Badger men's hockey team's first public appearance of the year, Badger White earned a 1-0 victory over Badger Red in Saturday's Red-White Scrimmage.

In front of an estimated crowd of 1,500 fans at the Kohl Center, senior Podge Turnbull (Hayward, Wis.) scored the game's only goal with just 3:20 remaining in the third period. After penalties to Justin Schultz (West Kelowna, B.C.) and Eric Springer (Wrightstown, Wis.), Badger White had a five-on-three advantage. Freshman Tyler Barnes (Eagan, Minn.) sent a pass across the face of the goal, and Turnbull put a one-timer behind senior goaltender Scott Gudmandson (Sherwood Park, Alberta). Junior Jake Gardiner (Minnetonka, Minn.) also recorded an assist on the goal.

Defense and goaltending had held off any scoring until that point, as numerous goal scoring opportunities were turned aside by the two goaltenders. Senior Brett Bennett (Williamsville, N.Y.) made 17 saves for the shutout victory for Team White.

Gudmandson turned away 19 shots for Team Red, including eight saves in the final period when Team White kept the pressure squarely on Gudmanson's goal.

The game was a relatively clean contest, with just six penalties called. Team White was 1-for-4 with the power play, scoring the game-winning goal on a five-on-three advantage. Team Red was 0-for-2 with the man advantage. Team White outshot Team Red 20-17.
I attended this and honestly, it was kind of boring. Lots of great defense, but not much scoring.
I was impressed with the goaltending, especially by Bennett. There were probably 3 scoring changes that should have been goals, but BB made an amazing (one was a diving save, the other was an awesome kick save) saves and prevented a goal. Hopefully they can keep it up, because the Badgers are going to need awesome goaltending this season!

The No. 5 Wisconsin women’s hockey team wrapped up its season-opening series against Rensselaer Polytechnic with a 6-0 win over the Engineers in front of 1,819 fans at the Kohl Center on Saturday night.

Junior Hilary Knight (Sun Valley, Idaho) led Wisconsin (2-0-0) with five points coming on two goals and three assists. Junior Brianna Decker (Dousman, Wis.) and Saige Pacholok (Edmonton, Alberta) each tallied a goal and an assist, and freshman Brittany Ammerman (River Vale, N.J.) posted two assists.
“Lots of good things came out of this weekend, but from a teaching standpoint there are things to work on,” head coach Mark Johnson said. “It was a good weekend to start, now we move forward and focus on the next one. RPI played hard both games.

“It’s a good opportunity this month to work on things. We have to continue to get better. It’s always a process starting out.”
Great weekend sweep. Its nice to see that their performance Friday night wasnt a fluke!

How'd Barnes look? I see he got a helper. We haven't really talked about him in the pre-season and I'm not sure why; he did have a nice scoring touch in the USHL.

I really hope both goalies make it a dog fight for the starting job. You're right, the goalies need to rule this year. Man, if Stepan had stayed on board this would be a sure playoff team. They still might make it because the overall depth in the NCAA is not as strong this year, but I feel like this team is one or two good forwards short of a contender.

I dont recall Barnes, sorry. Really the only players who stood out on offense were Murrary and Ramage. Both of them had some great moves and most likely will be who the Badgers look to when they need some goals.
I think by the middle of the season the Badgers will be fine, assuming the goaltending holds up. They just have a lot of young players and IMO if they are in a lot of close games all these young players will struggle to deal with the pressure. I think once they get some experience though, they will be fine. The team has some talented players, they are all just so young and dont have the experience.
I wish I had gotten video of some of the saves that Bennett made because they were spectacular. Its been a while since Ive seen a college goalie make a diving save like the one BB made.

Ramage stood out on offense? His game must be evolving pretty radically since last year. That's a surprise to hear but that's good since there are A LOT of points to make up from blueline departures.

Maybe thats just a sign of what little offensive firepower there is this season.
He looked good though, as did Murrary.
From what I saw, the Badgers are going to be much more of a defensive, puck control team this year. The goaltending will need to be awesome, the Badgers will need to get a lead and play keepaway as much as possible.
Im actually feeling optimistic about this season. The Badgers have some very talented players; they are just all so young and its going to take them time to gel and be able to deal with the pressure.

That's what happened the year Turris was on the team and it cost them some wins; notably the playoff game against NoDak. Well, that and allowing Kaip's offside goal.

At any rate I hope to never see that style played by Wisconsin or any other team. I understand clamping down defensively and working with what you have ala Michigan Tech the past couple years but there is enough offense on the team to make a difference. Craig Smith, Derek Lee, 1st Star Zengerle, Jason Clark, Tyler Barnes and Jordy Murray all have 20+ point potential...let them play. I wouldn't be surprised to see Podge or Dolan have a career year with some extra minutes. Even with the losses the team is still in much better position than half the conference offensively.

Hopefully Im wrong on this, but Im expecting to see the Badgers' wins being games that have a final score of 2-1 or 3-2. IMO, if they get behind by more than 2 goals, they will be in trouble.
It may not be all that exciting, but it is what it is and the Badgers will need to play to their strengths. This year, goal scoring probably wont be one of the Badgers' strengths. As much as I like Jordy Murrary, he's definetly no replacement for Blake Geoffrion.

The Wisconsin men’s hockey team starts the 2010-11 season with a clean slate. After reaching the NCAA championship game in 2010, UW replaces two assistant coaches, seven seniors and four early departures who left after signing NHL contracts.

The 2009-10 Badgers were an upperclass team for the first time since the 2006 NCAA title team, but while this year’s version of Wisconsin will see 17 of its 26 players coming from the freshman or sophomore classes, the age of this year’s team is just three months younger, on average.

Despite the massive turnover in student-athletes and staff, Wisconsin returns a healthy dose of talent and welcomes an intriguing group of newcomers to the Badger family.
Here we go, the puck drops in about 27.5 hours!

The No. 5 Wisconsin women's hockey team (2-0-0) begins Western Collegiate Hockey Association play this weekend, hosting league foe Bemidji State (1-1-0) in a Friday/Sunday series at the Kohl Center. Wisconsin takes on BSU at 7 p.m. (C.T.) on Friday, and the teams conclude the series at 2 p.m. Sunday.
Wisconsin owns a 41-3-2 all-time record against Bemidji State. The Badgers and Beavers split four meetings during 2009-10, including two shutout wins by BSU. Wisconsin outscored Bemidji State 9-5 in the last four games between the two squads.

What a bummer of a way to lose a season opener. I take nothing away from BU's game, but Bucky got screwed courtesy of replay equipment not being used. A technicality put a blemish on a otherwise dominating night for the WCHA in non-con action.

Hopefully Jason clark will be in the lineup soon. Nice game by Derek Lee..I'm looking for him to have a big year.
