09/10 Role: likely 4th line

08/09 Recap: Maria saw a lot of playing time in the first half of the season and notched her first goal and assist as a Badger in the first game of the season against Quinnipiac. During the second half of the season she lost playing time to Kayla Hagen on the 4th line. Unless my eyes deceived me last season, the 4th line doesn’t see much ice time.

09/10 Thoughts: The Badger Women will be short at forward this season, so Maria should be a regular in the lineup and see some good playing time. It’s harder for me to judge the Women than the Men, but I’d think her role will stay on the 4th line. I blame Coach Johnson (jokingly) for the reason why I don’t know more about Maria Evans.

Prediction: 34 games, 1-4-5
