Putting Together Next Season's Schedule

Icebadger over on the USCHO forum has done a great job of compiling the 2008/2009 schedule as information becames available. I'll take no credit for the following information and give it all to him. Thought it would be good to pass this on to those who don't frequent USCHO. Everything is tentative til UW releases the official schedule, which will hopefully occur next month.

Date Opponent
Oct 3-4 - - - - -
Oct 10-11 at BC, UNH (tentative dates)
Oct 17-18 at DU
Oct 24-25
Oct 31-Nov 1 at UND
Nov 7-8 vs MTU
Nov 14-15 at UMD
Nov 21-22 at SCSU
Nov 28-29 College Hockey Showcase (Mich, Mich St)
Dec 5-6
Dec 12-13 - - - - -
Dec 26-27 Badger Hockey Showdown (tentative dates) (Harvard, AL-Huntsville, LSSU)
Jan 2-3
Jan 9-10 @ UAA
Jan 16-17
Jan 23-24
Jan 30-31 vs UMD
Feb 6-7
Feb 13-14
Feb 20-21 vs DU
Feb 27-28
Mar 6-7 vs UND
Mar 13-15 WCHA 1st Round Playoffs (campus sites)
Mar 19-21 WCHA Final Five (St Paul MN)
Mar 27-29 NCAA Regionals (Manchester, NH, Bridgeport, CT, Minneapolis, MN, Grand Rapids, MI)
Apr 9/11 Frozen Four (Wash DC)

To Be Scheduled: home vs UAA, home vs CC, home/away vs Minny, home vs NMU, away vs MSUM

Tough start is shaping up. I would assume N. Michigan will be the home series on Oct 24/25. Hopefully UW doesn't schedule a series on Jan 2/3, so the WJC doesn't interfere w/ WCHA play again this season.
