To the surprise of few, Badgers men’s hockey coach Tony Granato was shown the door following multiple seasons of disappointment. How did they get here?
In their first home series in over a month, the Wisconsin Badgers proved to be their own worst enemies once again.
This past weekend’s abominable performance against archrival Minnesota was yet another reminder of Wisconsin’s fall from grace as a proud men’s hockey program and waning chances to return to that prominence. Changes must be made.
Although the Badger men’s hockey season started poorly, they gained some hope in the form of their first conference win of the season, against Michigan. Here’s what stood out over the weekend.
Wisconsin earned their first two home victories of the season this past weekend amid a season fraught with disappointment. Will the two wins create momentum, or are they simply aberrations?
The Wisconsin Men’s Hockey team started their season 0-4 after losing their opening two series, one against Big Ten opponent Ohio State and the other against former Western Collegiate Hockey Association rival St. Cloud State. Despite losing their opening four games this year, the team displayed some potential, especially against No. 8 St. Cloud.
As pressure mounts on head coach Tony Granato, a potential successor awaits in ex-Badger Andy Brandt.
The Wisconsin Badgers began their 2022-23 campaign with an exhibition matchup against the Lakehead Thunderwolves. Despite accumulating more shots on goal, the Badgers suffered a 3-2 loss in overtime.
