Johnson and childhood friend and current UW student, Johnny Byce, go back to their roots to a small frozen pond in Verona, Wis., where they grew up playing hockey with each other. This serves as an introduction to outdoor hockey, which is how many of UW's men's and women's players first experienced the game.
Day Two - "What A Bummer"
Take a look at Tuesday, Feb. 2, four days prior to the Culver's Camp Randall Hockey Classic. That was tentatively scheduled to be the first day that both the men's and women's teams practiced on the ice in Camp Randall Stadium. However, a small snowstorm Monday night into Tuesday morning delayed some of the ice preparation and forced the teams into the adjacent Shell for practice.
Day Three - "Indescribable"
