Today under the national spotlight and the only NCAA Men’s Hockey Division 1 game on the schedule, the Wisconsin Badgers beat the best team in the country as they shutout the Notre Dame Fighting Irish by the score of 5-0 from the United Center, home to the National Hockey Leagues Chicago Blackhawks.

Boston Bruins 2016 first round pick and Badgers forward Trent Frederic had an outstanding game especially on the penalty-kill scoring his second shorthanded goal of the season and fourth of his career. The 6′-3″ 215-pound St. Louis, Missouri native now has 11-8-19 numbers in 25 games this season in Big Ten action, and with eight games remaining in the 2017-18 regular season, the 19-year-old Wisconsin forward could come close to his career high of 33 points he contributed in his freshman year.

Below is today’s shorthanded as he skates in unmolested for the Badgers second goal of the game and extends his goal streak to three consecutive games.

Frederic and his Wisconsin team get back to work next weekend with two back-to-back contests at home against Penn State. The Badgers are second to last in the Big Ten and are ranked 18th in the USCHO Division 1 Men’s Poll as of 1-15-18 which could have the team go up a couple of ranks with today’s massive win over the University of Notre Dame.
