Former Wisconsin hockey forward Sean Dhooghe entered the transfer portal last week and will leave the program. Dhooghe tweeted late last week that he’ll play his final season at Arizona State.
It’s not known at this time if Dhooghe will have to sit out a year under NCAA transfer rules, or if he’ll be allowed to play immediately. The NCAA is considering allowing athletes to transfer once during their career without penalty, which could go into place for next season.
