09/10 Role: 3rd or 4th line

08/09 Recap: Emily spent the season as a regular on the Badgers’ 4th line. As one might expect of the 4th line, they didn’t see nearly as much ice time as the top three lines, and for some reason tonight I’m really drawing a loss at their play last season.

09/10 Thoughts: Emily has played in every game during her Badger career and this year should be no different. She is one of four seniors (by eligibility) on the team and has been named an alternate captain. I’m not sure what Emily’s role will be on the team, though in a captain’s role and having 123 games of NCAA experience, her leadership and experience on the ice will needed to help the Badgers succeed this season.

Prediction: 34 games, 3-5-8*
