UWBadgers.com Video Series

I'll check this out more when I get home from work, but I thought I'd clue you guys into a new video series about the Camp Randall Hockey Classic being produced and released on UWBadgers.com. From the website:

MADISON, Wis. -- In the first episode of the 10-part "It's a Great Day for Hockey!" series, junior Patrick Johnson takes the crew to a frozen pond where he used to play as kid.

Johnson and childhood friend and current UW student, Johnny Byce, go back to their roots to a small frozen pond in Verona, Wis., where they grew up playing hockey with each other. This serves as an introduction to outdoor hockey, which is how many of UW's men's and women's players first experienced the game.

During the seven-minute video, Badger men's coach Mike Eaves and Badger women's coach Tracey DeKeyser talk about some of the differences about playing hockey outdoors and what their players can expect during the Culver's Camp Randall Hockey Classic.

Watch the entire episode here.
