==========================================================================
Minnesota center NICK BJUGSTAD (27), the homegrown junior from Blaine who led the Gophers in goal-scoring for a second consecutive season by finding the back of the net 21 times this term, skates the puck as Wisconsin right wing SEAN LITTLE (18) prepares to confront the first round pick (# 19 overall) of the Florida Panthers at the 2010 National Hockey League Draft during the neutral site clash of Big Ten rivals earlier this winter on the outdoor rink at venerable Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois.

NOTES — the all-time records for the NCAA men’s ice hockey tournament, which has seen the format change a few times over the years, include two ties for Wisconsin as well as one draw for UMass – Lowell … the tournament records of Denver University in 1973 and Wisconsin in 1992 were officially invalidated as a result of NCAA rules infractions – the Pioneers and the Badgers both reached the NCAA tournament final before losing in the years that were voided.
