The Seawolves are traveling down to Madison, Wis. to hit the ice against the Badgers.
The University of Wisconsin currently has a record of 3-2-1 while the Seawolves hold a record of 3-5-0.
On Nov. 4 Collegehockeynews.com named the Badgers the “Team of the Week”.
They had two impressive victories over New Hampshire where the Badgers won 4-1 and 6-1. Along with being called the team of the week, Wisconsin also had two defensemen – junior Brendan Smith and freshman John Ramage – that earned WCHA player of the week awards. The Badgers are looking forward to facing off against the Seawolves at their home rink.
“I think right now because we’re in the process of trying to get our group to find its identity and play consistently, the fact is we’re playing UAA at home, this is a good team we’re playing. And the fact that they’re coming in our barn and we want to continue forward in our quest of finding that identity and playing to it, you know, for 60 minutes, 120 over the course of the weekend, which becomes our next task,” says Wisconsin Head Coach Mike Eaves.
UAA is tied for last in the 10-team WCHA with Michigan Tech, while Wisconsin is just two spots ahead of them. The Seawolves will need to come out strong and play the full 60 minutes at their best if they want to take down the Badgers while on the road. Players UAA will need to watch out for include sophomore forwards Derek Stephan and Jordy Murray. They both have been stand out players so far for the Badger squad.
