Badger hockey to open season in Eau Claire

MADISON, Wis. -- With a nod to Wisconsin-Eau Claire's 2013 NCAA Division III Men's Ice Hockey championship, as well as the hometown of current Badger assistant captains in senior forward Jefferson Dahl and junior defenseman Jake McCabe, the Wisconsin Badgers will use their first official day of practice for the 2013-14 season with their Red-White scrimmage in Eau Claire, Wis.

Skating at Hobbs Ice Center on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 1 p.m., the Badgers will start with 30 minutes of practice, then follow with two officiated 20-minute periods. An autograph session with the men's hockey team will follow.

The 2013-14 Wisconsin men's hockey season marks the first year of Big Ten hockey. UW enters the season after a four-month surge that culminated in the program's 12th and final WCHA playoff championship.

Pre-sale tickets for the Red-White Scrimmage go on sale Monday, Aug. 19 for $15. Tickets will cost $20 at the door. A total of 1,500 tickets will be available. All proceeds will benefit the UW-Eau Claire men's hockey program.

Pre-sale tickets will be available through the UW-Eau Claire Service Center in Davies Center, over the phone at 715-836-3727 or online at
