Wisconsin freshman forward Cole Caufield (Stevens Point, Wis.) was named the Big Ten Conference’s second star after debuting with a five-point weekend.
Caufield led the Badgers with four goals and five points, becoming the first player in the modern era of Wisconsin hockey to record consecutive multi-goal games to start his career.
Caufield scored the Badgers first goal of the season and later added a second at Boston College on Friday. He added two goals and one assist in a victory at Merrimack on Saturday, including a goal six seconds into the third period, one second shy of the school record for fastest goal to start a period.
Caufield and the Badgers skate on home ice for the first time this season this weekend. They’ll host a pair of games against defending NCAA Champion Minnesota-Duluth on Friday and Saturday.
