MADISON, Wis. –- The Wisconsin men’s hockey team is inviting area youth to help welcome the Badgers to the ice pre-game at select home games this season.
The team has experimented this year before three of its first four home games and has watched the numbers grow to nearly 100 youth ushering the Badgers onto the ice for its games.
Badger fans, ages 4-12, can sign up to form a tunnel outside the Badgers’ locker room in the lower level of the Kohl Center and welcome the team as they walk to the ice prior to the start of select home games. These home games include (click on a game to register):

The waiver will be sent via e-mail following online registration.
