09/10 Role: 1st or 2nd line, PP, PK

08/09 Recap: Jasmine was another piece of the dominant 3rd line for the Badgers a season ago. She also saw a lot of ice time on special teams, and if my memory serves correct she was part of the 1st all-forward PP unit. Her stats really took a big jump as they basically doubled from her sophomore season, and along the way was one of the most consistent Badgers scoring in about 75% of their games.

09/10 Thoughts: Jasmine has been named team captain for the 09/10 season. Similar to Mallory Deluce and Kyla Sanders, I have Jasmine tabbed as a player who needs to step up as her role on the team expands further as a senior. She plays in all situations and w/ the graduation of Erika Lawler and the Olympic departure of Hilary Knight is one of the only Badgers remaining to do that. Part of her job will be to lead the Badger Women to NC #4 this season.

Prediction: 34 games, 15-25-40*
