University of Wisconsin officials will dedicate the Kohl Center ice sheet to
former legendary coach Bob Johnson tonight. Johnson led the Badgers to three national titles (1973, ’77 and ’81) during his career.
Wisconsin women’s coach Mark Johnson (Bob’s son) will be on hand for the dedication.
Several members of the Johnson family will be on hand, as well as several former players that played under Johnson at the UW.
The Badgers (1-2-1, 1-0-1 WCHA) will face Colorado College (3-3-0, 0-0-0) this weekend.
It’s the 182nd and 183rd meetings in the long history of this series. Wisconsin’s 108 victories over CC is the most over any of its opponents. Wisconsin will be trying to break a 4-game losing streak to CC.
