Badger senior forward Michael Davies (St. Louis), who played a key role as the now-No. 2 Badgers earned three points from then-No. 1 Denver last weekend, has been named Red Baron® WCHA Offensive Player of the Week for Jan. 26.

A 5-8, 175-pound senior right winger, Davies ran his streak of multiple-point games to six straight and his overall scoring streak to a career-best seven games while producing four scoring points.

Davies punched in one goal and contributed one assist in last Friday's 3-3 overtime tie against the Pioneers. With the Badgers trailing 2-0 in the third period, Davies assisted on teammate Blake Geoffrion's tip-in goal to get the team on the board at the 4:31 mark. Less than three minutes later, Davies gave the puck to linemate Derek Stepan on one side of the DU goal, then got a return pass on the other side for a one-timer and the Badgers' second goal.

Last Saturday, Davies earned the primary assist on the game's first goal at 15:47 of the first period, giving him 100 points for his UW career. He then scored the game-winning goal at 13:30 of the third period as the Badgers earned a 4-3 victory over DU and snapped a six-game winless streak against the Pioneers.

Davies is now tied for the Wisconsin scoring lead with 30 points (11g, 19a) in 22 games. The Badgers will need Davies to keep producing, as UW heads north to battle conference-leading Minnesota Duluth this weekend in a crucial WCHA showdown. The puck drops at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday night.

Overall, a decent weekend for the Badgers. They won on Friday but lost on Saturday. I can accept a weekend split with UM-D.

The second -ranked Wisconsin men's hockey team (15-6-4, 11-5-3 WCHA) topped the first-place Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs (16-10-1, 12-6-1 WCHA) Friday night at the DECC. The Badgers saw two goals and an assist by senior forward Aaron Bendickson (Thief River Falls, Minn.) in the crucial victory for UW. The Badgers were relentless on their shots-on-goal production, as they outshot UMD, 52-19, in the game.

The Wisconsin men's hockey team (15-7-4, 11-6-3 WCHA) was shutout for the first time this season as it fell 4-0 at Minnesota Duluth (17-10-1, 13-6-1 WCHA) Saturday night.
Penalties played a large part in the game. The Badgers were 0-for-5 on the penalty play, while the Bulldogs scored on one their nine chances. It was the UW penalties that wrecked any chance at a comeback by repeatedly stopping momentum gains.
When all was said and done, UMD edged UW in shots-on-goal, 31-28.

Men’s head coach Mike Eaves made his usual media appearance on Monday. In it, he discussed this weekend’s outdoor game and touched on last weekend’s series split with UMD. The Badgers are currently 15-7-4 overall and 11-6-3 in WCHA action. This Saturday, No. 3 UW will square off the No. 19 Michigan Wolverines (15-12-1, 10-9-1 CCHA) at 5 p.m. in Camp Randall. Wisconsin is currently tied for fourth place in the WCHA, and it only trails league-leading Denver by three points.

After months of preparation and anxious waiting, it's finally here. This Saturday, the Wisconsin men's hockey (15-7-4, 11-6-3 WCHA) team will move outside to take on the Michigan Wolverines (16-12-1, 11-9-1 CCHA) and attempt to avenge an early-season 3-2 loss in Ann Arbor, Mich. Though non-conference, the game carries huge implications in regards to the PairWise rankings, which mimic NCAA tournament selections.

Like many members of both Wisconsin hockey teams, junior Brendan Smith (Mimico, Ontario) reminisced about his childhood years after hitting the ice in the Culver's Camp Randall Hockey Classic Saturday night, the first hockey game at Camp Randall Stadium.

Smith, however, had an outdoor experience that will forever remain in his collegiate hockey memories as he led the Badgers with two goals in Wisconsin's 3-2 victory over Michigan in the winter showdown.

Not only did he play a key role in obtaining the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Museum Game Trophy, Smith extended his game-winning goal tally to four goals.

Smith may have been the one to seal the deal, but he believes his teammates and their ability to set up both of his power-play goals were the key element in his own ability to find the back of the net.

The No. 3 Badger men’s hockey team (16-7-4, 11-6-3 WCHA) is coming off last weekend’s come-from-behind victory in the Culver’s Camp Randall Hockey Classic against Michigan. This weekend, UW gets back into WCHA play as it hosts Minnesota State (12-14-2, 6-13-1 WCHA) at the Kohl Center. Wisconsin is currently in a fourth-place tie in the conference, but it only trails conference-leaders Minnesota Duluth and St. Cloud State by four points. On Monday, Mike Eaves talked about last weekend’s game and touched on the team’s final conference stretch.

Thurber is suspended from competition and practice pending the availability of further information relating to his case.

During the suspension, Thurber will remain on official squad lists and may continue to receive support service in the sports medicine facility, the academic support center and the weight training room.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) protects any additional information regarding disciplinary actions toward a student.

The No. 3 Wisconsin men's hockey team (16-7-4, 11-6-3 WCHA) gets back into conference play as it battles the Minnesota State Mavericks (12-14-2, 6-13-1 WCHA) this weekend at the Kohl Center. Both games begin at 8 p.m.
Minnesota State will be the first unranked opponent the Badgers have faced since Jan. 2 and just their second unranked opponent since the first weekend of December. Rankings mean little, however, as the Badgers and Mavericks split a series in Mankato back on Oct. 23-24. Wisconsin captured the first game, 6-0, and dropped the second, 3-2. Wisconsin leads the all-time series by a 18-14-4 edge and a 13-4-1 margin in Madison.

The Badgers have won the last three games in the series at the Kohl Center, including a first-round WCHA playoff sweep last March 13-14. The Badgers own five series sweeps over the Mavericks, all at home, and would enjoy making it six this weekend.

The Badgers have much going for them at this point. Wisconsin boasts the nation's second highest-scoring offense, led by Hobey Baker Award candidate and the nation's leading scorer on the blue line in junior Brendan Smith (33 points). Junior goaltender Scott Gudmandson currently owns a nine-game unbeaten streak (6-0-3) and senior forward Blake Geoffrion owns the top spot in the WCHA with 18 goals in all games and 16 in WCHA play. In addition, Badger freshman forward Craig Smith is tops among WCHA freshmen in league scoring with 20 total points.

Wisconsin saw a goal and three assists by senior tri-captain Blake Geoffrion (Brentwood, Tenn.).

Michigan Tech should be a couple of easy wins for Denver. Wisconsin easily beat them earlier this year (I think one night was 8-2 and the other night was 6-0).
St Cloud State is going to be a tough series for Wisconsin. If they manage to split the series, I'll be happy.

Badger senior tri-captain Blake Geoffrion (Brentwood, Tenn.) has been given the National Player of the Week laurel by Inside College Hockey. This comes off a seven point weekend in the No. 3 Badgers' series sweep of the Minnesota State Mavericks.

Geoffrion had a goal and three assists to factor in all four of Wisconsin's goals in a 4-3 win Friday night over Minnesota State. He added a pair of goals and an assist in Saturday's 8-4 Badger win, including a power-play goal in the first period that put Wisconsin in front to stay. He leads the WCHA with 21 goals and ranks third on the Badgers with 35 points.

The No. 3 Wisconsin men’s hockey team (18-7-3, 13-6-3 WCHA) welcomes the No. 4 St. Cloud State Huskies (19-9-4, 14-7-3 WCHA) into the Kohl Center this weekend in a crucial WCHA-showdown.

UW currently sits in a tie for third place in the conference, and it trails second-place SCSU by two total points. The Badger shave played two fewer league games than the Huskies.

Wisconsin can clinch home ice for the WCHA playoffs with a few scenarios this weekend. The most straightforward way is with a sweep over St. Cloud State.

The series will mark the 75th and 76th games played all-time between the two schools and the 40th and 41st in Madison. Earlier this season, the teams split a two-game series in St. Cloud, Minn., after each team posted a 4-1 victory.

The team that wins this weekend will take the season series and will own the WCHA tie break.

The Badgers are two victories away from their fifth 20-win season in eight years under Head Coach Mike Eaves and the 33rd in school history.

The Badgers were also powered by sophomore Derek Stepan’s (Hastings, Minn.) three assists and one goal in the win.
