Wisconsin Hockey

The Wisconsin athletic department behind (I'm assuming) the direction of Men's Hockey Athletic Communications Director Paul Capobianco has created a new web site for the hockey program.

From what I can tell by just looking at the site briefly, the main purpose of the new site is to help assist fans in the purchase of tickets. And they certainly do a nice job of that.

There are sections devoted to informing fans on how to renew season tickets, how to start a new season ticket package, how to get student tickets, as well as information on different types of ticket packages.

There is also a section devoted to informing fans about the women's game facility that will also be used by the men for practice. I'm not sure if they have done this in the past but this season they are including a spot for you to donate money for the project on your season ticket order form. They currently project the facility opening prior to the 2012-2013 hockey season.

Other features on the site include information on parking, the teams upcoming schedule for the 2010-2011 season, a news ticker on the bottom with recent relevant news, information on how to purchase women's hockey tickets, and it looks like there will be a feature in the future where the fans will be given an opportunity to design Senior goalie Scott Gudmandson's paint job for the upcoming season, as well as a letter from head coach Mike Eaves.
