Scouting Report

"He came back to the bench (after blocking shot) and said 'I deserve that because I lost the faceoff so clean. That's the kind of lad he is. That's taking responsibility. He's the type of guy who wants to sit and watch his shifts after every weekend, he goes and works with our trainers on his own for extra workouts. He's very focused on his goals." - Wisconsin coach Mike Eaves
