The defending NCAA champion Wisconsin women’s hockey team opens the season this weekend at the Kohl Center tonight and Sunday. The Badgers face Lindenwood University tonight (7pm faceoff).
The Badgers have won four of the last six NCAA titles, but look to replace last year’s National Player of the Year, Meghan Duggan, among others.
Senior Hilary Knight, the leading goal scorer in school history, will serve as the Badgers captain this season.
The Badgers will unveil their latest National Championship banner before tonight’s game.
