Badgers receive 2013 WCHA Final Five playoff championship rings

The Badgers were rewarded with new rings this week to commemorate their 2013 WCHA playoff championship.

Wisconsin started its 2012-13 campaign on a rather rocky road, going just 1-7-2 in its first 10 games. Its finish, however, will go down as one of the most memorable in program history. The Badgers lost just six times in their final 32 contests, picking up some hardware along the way.

Needing to win the WCHA Final Five to earn a birth in the NCAA tournament, Wisconsin did just that. The Badgers started by sweeping Minnesota-Duluth in a first-round, WCHA best-of-three playoff series, and capped off the run by beating Minnesota State, St. Cloud State and Colorado College at the Final Five in St. Paul, Minn. For their efforts, the Badgers were awarded the Braodmoor Trophy and earned an at-large bid into the NCAA tournament.

The players received rings on Wednesday to commemorate the accomplishment.

With a loaded roster of upperclassmen slated to return for the 2013-14 season, the Badgers likely have dreams of a ring with a few more diamonds coming their way next summer.
