Still can't get enough of Badger hockey? Neither can we. That's why we dedicated our summer issue of Badger Nation Magazine to reliving the 2005-06 men's and women's hockey seasons and their glorious runs to their unprecedented dual NCAA Championships.
Double the excitement. Double the thrills. Double the championship celebration. As Athletic Director Barry Alvarez said, "We own college hockey."
We talk to Patty Kazmaier winner Sara Bauer and the men's senior class that saw it all. We follow up with two goalies who were nearly flawless in the postseason, Brian Elliott and Jessie Vetter, in leading their teams to championships. We find out what it's like for both teams to win those golden NCAA trophies — the season-long journeys and championship celebrations. The issue also includes features on former Badgers Robbie Earl and Ryan Suter and three photo montages.
This issue isn't just about the hockey seasons in retrospect — we look ahead to future years with stories on the men's team's new captain, Andrew Joudrey, and two men's verbal commitments from a prestigious St. Paul high school, plus commentary on why the Badger men and women should be favored to repeat. The future is bright in the State of Hockey.
