Saturday morning Badger updates

Todd Milewski at The Capital Times has a story up about Jake Gardiner being selected #17 overall by the Ducks.

Andy Baggot
from the Wisconsin State Journal also checks in with an article on Gardiner and the histroy of Wisconsin defensemen.

Jake Gardiner had all the right things to say to the Ducks media as Adam Brady from gives us some insight on the pick.

The L.A. Times has a quick blirb about Gardiner in coverage mostly focused around Kings pick Drew Doughty.

The Battle of California blogger checks in with his thoughts on the draft selection of Gardiner.

St. Paul Pioneer Press has coverage of the the selection. Gardiner says he should be ready for the NHL in 1 to 2 years. I personally think it's more like 3 but we'll see.

Another gardiner article off the yahoo sports ticker.

Minneapolis Star Tribune's Michael Russo on Gardiner's selection.

I personally will be gone all day so don't expect any draft updates from me until tonight. Not sure if the other members of the staff are busy today or not. Hopefully I'll be checking in sometimes tonight for a recap.

USCHO has a draft tracker for just college hockey players that hopefully they will keep up to date during the day today.
