Men's Hockey

Senior captain Cameron Hughes and the Badgers lost two four-goal contests against Ohio State in Columbus.

Badgers almost complete comeback, ultimately tie Michigan 4-4 for four-point weekend

They were losing, then winning, then losing again and then they ultimately tied. Saturday night’s matchup with Michigan (2-2-1-1 Big Ten, 6-4-2 overall) followed an unusual, yet familiar story for Wisconsin’s men’s hockey team (3-2-1-0, 8-5-2), as they mounted a comeback to erase an early deficit but couldn’t seal the deal in an eventful 4-4 tie. The stage was set dramatically in the first seven minutes as the Badgers dug themselves a quick two-goal hole on goals from Michigan’s Cooper Marody and Tony Calderone.

Trent Frederic has not been as dominant as many predicted thus far in his sophomore season. If Frederic can respond and pick up some offensive momentum, the Badgers will likely earn a sweep this weekend against Michigan State.

Michigan resembles 2016-’17 Badgers, looks to add to surprising Big Ten run this weekend against Wisconsin

Coming into this season, many thought the Big Ten was going to primarily be a five-team race between Minnesota, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Ohio State and Penn State. Now, after a 2-1-1 conference start and a 6-3-1 overall start, including a win and a tie against No. 7 Minnesota, Michigan has reestablished themselves as a competitive, quality hockey team with legitimate Big Ten Championship aspirations.
