The Wisconsin Badger men’s hockey team will be shifting to the Big Ten Conference next season. They opened their final WCHA
campaign last night with a 2-0 win over Minnesota-Duluth at Amsoil Arena in Duluth last night.
Wisconsin junior center Mark Zengerle assisted on a goal by junior right-winger Tyler Barnes in the first period, then scored on a power play in the second for the only two goals of the game.
Sophomore goaltender Joel Rumpel kept the Bulldogs from scoring in a 29-save effort. Rumpel recorded his 4th career shutout for Mike Eaves Badgers, who improved to 1-2 on the season and 1-0 in the WCHA.
The final game of the 2-game series is tonight in Duluth.
