New year, same expectations for Wisconsin Women’s Hockey

MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Women’s Hockey team is a little over a week into their return to the ice for the upcoming season.

And this group will look a lot different. The Badgers lost a majority of their scoring and goaltender from last year’s team that reached the NCAA Regional Finals. But that doesn’t mean they’re inexperienced.

UW has a handful of players returning from Olympic redshirt years that have Olympic and National team experience.

Mark Johnson named senior forward Britta Curl the team’s captain for the 2022-23 season. Natalie Buchbinder, Nicole LaMantia, and Casey O’Brien will serve as alternate captains for the Badgers.
