The Wisconsin Badgers snapped a three-game winning streak last night with a 5-4 overtime loss to the hands of the Northern Michigan Wildcats. The Badgers will try to seek redemption today as both teams are set to face each other at 5pm CT. Although the second loss in six games was tough, the efforts of Boston Bruins forward prospect Trent Frederic cannot go unmentioned.


Frederic, a 6′-3″ 215-pound St. Louis, Missouri native was selected with the 29th pick in the 2016 National Hockey League entry-draft and is currently playing in his sophomore year with the Badgers contributing seven points in six games this season and is riding a three-game point streak going 3-1-4 during that time. His longest career NCAA  Men’s Hockey point streak was in his freshman year when he had points in eight straight games during the 2016-17 season.

Below are clips of Frederic’s two-goal effort from last night which was a 2017-18 season high for him.

First Period – Frederic ties the score at one with his third goal of the season assisted by Peter Tischke and Matt Ustaski at 14:39


Third Period – Frederic once again there to tie the score at four and forcing the Wildcats to overtime with his fourth goal of the year with the lone assist to Ryan Wagner at 17:50


Trent is on track to pass his career high of 33 points in 30 games last year where he missed some time with an upper-body injury, so if he remains healthy for the remainder of the season, I can definitely see him passing his 15-18-33 numbers as he continues to develop under the guidance of former NHL player and now Badgers Head Coach Tony Granato.
