Badgers Women’s Hockey announce full 2015-16 schedule

The Wisconsin Badgers earned a fifth WCHA playoff title and an eighth appearance in the NCAA tournament in the 2014-15 season, despite a ton of turnover and lots of “getting to know you” moments.

Joseph LaBate signs contract with Vancouver Canucks

One of the lone bright spots on a dreadful season for Wisconsin Badgers men’s hockey was the play of forward Joseph LaBate.
