Devils prospect Joe Faust commits to Wisconsin

New Jersey Devils' fourth round draft pick, defenseman Joe Faust, has committed to Wisconsin of the WCHA for next season. Best of luck to Faust, and hopefully he makes the team for 2010-11. Hat-tip to Chuck Schwartz of Sixty Minutes. No Alibis. No Regrets, who found the Minnesota Hockey Hub article confirming the news.

On second thought, we probably shouldn't build that right now

The building of a new hockey facility that would connect the Kohl Center and the SERF has been put on hold, the UW Athletic Department announced Tuesday. Here is the official release: MADISON, Wis. -- A facility project that would include a new ice arena, as well as locker and team room functions for the UW men's and women's hockey and swimming programs, will be delayed until further notice, UW Director of Athletics Barry Alvarez said Tuesday. "This project has been very well received and we are most appreciative of those who have supported it financially thus far," Alvarez said. "We are, however, not quite where we feel we need to be to move forward at this time from a financial standpoint. It simply would not be responsible, particularly in this economic climate, for us to proceed until we feel comfortable doing so. We will continue to work diligently toward our goal of building this important facility." The new building, which would be connected to both the Kohl Center and the Southeast Recreational Facility (SERF), would encompass a hockey arena that would serve as a competition and practice facility for the UW women's hockey team and a practice surface for the men's team. Included as well would be a variety of locker, athletic training, meeting and office spaces for the hockey and swimming programs.

Jamie McBain turns pro, reports to Albany

As expected, UW junior defenseman Jamie McBain turned pro and will finish the season with the Albany River Rats (AHL), the Carolina Hurricanes' top minor league affiliate. McBain led the Badgers in scoring this season with 37 points and was named the WCHA Player of the Year. He is a Top-10 finalist for the Hobey Baker Award.
