Badger Women Dominate National Stats

The Badger Women are off this weekend, which makes sense w/ a large part of the team playing in the Four Nations Cup. The Badgers are about 1/3 of the way through the season, good time to take a look at how the Women are doing Nationally and in the WCHA. Hilary Knight, Jesse Vetter, Brooke Ammerman and Erika Lawler head the naitonal statisics.

Sure the Badgers kinda beat down some easy non-WCHA opponents, but they are doing very well in the WCHA. Brooke Ammerman is a standout frosh for the Badgers, her goal on friday night against the Foreign Legion of Duluth was outstanding, going top shelf while being tripped.
