Wisconsin sophomore defenseman Jake McCabe of Eau Claire, has been named
captain of the U.S. National Junior hockey team.
McCabe is the 3rd straight Badger to captain the squad. Current Badger defenseman John Ramage captained the 2011 team and ex-Badgers forward Derek Stepan served in that role in 2010.
McCabe has nine points this season for the Badgers.
The U.S. team will compete in the 2013 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship, which begins play in Russia on Wednesday.
