Men's Hockey

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.

Badgers fall in conference opener against Ohio State

Sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same. The Wisconsin Badgers (0-1-0 Big Ten, 1-1-0 overall) learned that lesson the hard way in the closing stages of a 3-2 loss to Ohio State (1-0-0, 1-0-0) at the Kohl Center Friday night, as a pair of key defensive miscues soiled an otherwise strong defensive performance by the Badgers. The Buckeyes came out stronger in what was their season opener, possessing the puck for long stretches and keeping junior netminder Sean Romero out of danger with only four shots on goal allowed in the opening period. “I think they came out and got to their game before they let us get to ours,” head coach Tony Granato said.

Granato to coach both Wisconsin and the U.S. Olympic Team this season

Earlier in the summer, recently named general manager of the USA Olympic hockey team and former Badger hockey player Jim Johannson needed to create a coaching staff to lead the United States during the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Luckily, at an impromptu reunion of the 1988 Men’s Olympic hockey team that Johannson was a member of, the general manager turned to longtime friend, former UW teammate and current head coach for Wisconsin Tony Granato for the job. Johannson and Granato were teammates on three UW hockey teams.

Denver Pioneers clear favorite to repeat as national champions

There are 60 teams in college hockey and they will all be chasing Denver this season. The Pioneers suffered only three regular season losses en route to claiming the regular season NCHC title and cruised through the NCAA Tournament, defeating Minnesota-Duluth in the final to earn the school’s eighth national championship. DU returns over three-quarters of the goals from last season, and while the Pioneers will be without last year’s Hobey Baker award winner, Will Butcher, the amount of talent left on the team is scary.

Junior Jack Berry stopped just 11 of the 15 shots he faced in Friday night's 5-0 loss, costing the Badgers a chance in a game where they outshot North Dakota.

All-American transfer primed for big impact in first season with UW

For Wisconsin men’s hockey, it may be out with the old (goalie) and in with the new. Matt Jurusik, the team’s full-time starter two seasons ago and starter at the beginning of last year — he ended up splitting time with Berry as the season progressed — decided over the summer to leave Wisconsin to play in the United States Hockey League with the Sioux City Musketeers.
