MADISON, Wis.— A day anticipated as soon as the 2016-17 season ended is upon us – the release of the 2017-18 Wisconsin men's hockey schedule.The schedule features some high-quality matchups for Tony Granato and his players.
"We have a schedule filled with quality opponents that I think both our team and our fans will enjoy," Granato said. "We get North Dakota and St. Lawrence at the Kohl Center and we travel out to Boston College and back to Green Bay for games.
"This is a unique year for our schedule in that we jump right in to Big Ten play for the first since the Big Ten formed and we also add Notre Dame as a league member. I've seen early thoughts that have them highly ranked for next year. That will add to the quality of play in the Big Ten. There are great recruits all around the league that we'll get to face and watch and that will make the league very strong again."
The Badgers open practice on Saturday, September 30, then open Big Ten play on Oct. 6-7 with a Kohl Center series against Ohio State. The Badgers opened Big Ten play on Dec. 9 at Michigan last season.
