8 Badgers Players make IIHF World Women's Championship rosters

8 Badgers have made their countries' rosters for the upcoming IIHF World Women's Championship in Hameenlinna, Finland.

Defenseman Carla MacLeod and forward/defenseman Meaghan Mikkelson (she made the roster as a forward) will be representing Canada.

Defensemen Kerry Weiland and Molly Engstrom, goaltender Jessie Vetter, and forwards Erika Lawler, Meghan Duggan, and Hilary Knight will be representing the US. And of course Mark Johnson will be their head coach.

Needless to say I'm a bit disappointed that Bobbi Jo Slusar and Jinelle Zaugg didn't make the cut for their respective teams.

The tournament runs Apr 4 - 12, although there are some pre-tournament games before that. I'll do my best to keep up with things for you!

Good luck to our International Badgers!
