Wisconsin Badgers Hockey TicketsThe Wisconsin Badgers have one of the most storied ice hockey programs in the NCAA. After claiming their first NCAA title in 1973 by defeating Denver, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Badgers went on to win the championship in 1977, 1981, 1983, 1990 and 2006. Hockey fans note that the 2006 title is particularly notable because both the men's and women's programs won their respective NCAA championships that year, marking the first time it had occurred in NCAA hockey history. After 2006, the Badgers faltered. During the 2014 and 2015 seasons, the team won just 12 of the 70 games it played. Since 2016, things have turned around under the leadership of head coach and former Badger player, Tony Granato. With Granato at the helm, fans made a big return to support the Badgers' during their comeback. During the 2018–19 season, the team posted 14 wins. With a roster full of young prospects, including several NHL draft picks, there's never been a better time to be a fan of Badgers hockey. Get your Wisconsin Badgers Hockey tickets at StubHub.
