Wednesday morning catch-up

That's right kids, it's time for another catch-up linkorama.
  • The Daily Cardinal wraps up the Badger Women's sweep of Bemidji

  • Sophomore forward Maria Evans and senior goaltender Ryan Jeffery were named WCHA Scholar-Athletes. Nice work, Maria and Ryan.

  • The Daily Cardinal and The Badger Herald take a look at the Badgers' 4 Patty Kaz candidates: Jessie Vetter, Hilary Knight, Meghan Duggan, and Erika Lawler.

  • Speaking of the Patty Kaz, the NHL Foundation is continuing its support.

  • Gearing up for the 2010 Olympic Games, hockeycanada is profiling players who are likely to make the women's Olympic team, including Badger Bobbie Jo Slusar.

  • Hockeycanada is also asking prominent Canadians to name their rosters for Canada's Men's Olympic Team, and Badger Meaghan Mikkelson weighs in with her choices, including Badger Dany Heatley.

  • I haven't really been following the WIAA state hockey tourney, but DPlaya tells me the following:
    • #1 Appleton and UW recruit Matt Paape were upset Tuesday by potential UW recruit Wes Wauters and Ashwaubenon. Appleton had been undefeated.
    • Madison Edgewood with UW recruit Cody Strang won Tuesday and have advanced to their Sectional final.
    Needless to say, I recommend not relying on me for additional information; much better choices include HIW, Wisconsin Prep Hockey, and No Sleep Til Madison.

  • When the Badgers get us down, I suppose we might as well take some comfort in the gophers also being down. I'd rather be celebrating Badger victories, but since that wasn't in the cards last weekend, I'll allow myself to be entertained by this and this from Goon.

  • This is over a week old, but I keep forgetting to post it. WQOW has an interview with Derrick LaPoint. Thanks to Michael Trzinski of Wisconsin Prep Hockey for pointing it out.
