Three Badger Alumni players could be participating in the Game. Brian Rafalski (91-95) is sure to play for the Redwings. Chris Chelios (81-83) has just returned after breaking his leg and is a good possibility to play for the Wings. That leaves Adam Burish (02-06) who is also returning from injury and is yet to be annonced for the lineup. Adam is no stranger to the outdoor game which should help Adam get into the lineup.
