Defenseman Jeff Slinde, a Monona, Wis., native, has been added to the Wisconsin men's hockey team. Slinde comes to Madison from the Springfield Spirit, where he played the second half of the 2003-04 season. He originally played for the Dayton Gems of the North American Hockey League but the team folded and Springfield took him on in a dispersal draft. He had five goals and 17 points in 45 games throughout the season; all five goals and 15 of the assists came with in the 25 games he played with the Spirit.
"Having Jeff gives our defensive corps depth, which is very good for us," head coach Mike Eaves. "Jeff will have the opportunity to improve and become a player for the UW."
The 6-0, 185-pound defenseman spent his freshman and sophomore years at Monona Grove High School before transferring to Culver (Ind.) Academy for his final two seasons. In Indiana, he played for the No. 2 team in the country and finished the season 38-9-1.
