... to College Hockey.
The Wisconsin Badger Hockey season ended last weekend. After a disappointing loss to Denver in the WCHA semi-finals, Bucky knocked North Dakota in the third place game.
The big news this week, is the unsurprising news that star Defenseman Jamie McBain is turning pro.
McBain was great this year, but unfortunately my memories of him will be the North Dakota game where, on a power play with a one-goal lead, he turned the puck over and it lead to a Sioux short-handed goal. Bucky lost 2-1 (much to my chagrin).
All in All McBain was a stud this year, and if he wins the Hobey Baker he deserves it. I look forward to seeing him in the NHL.
