Mark Johnson has found his goaltender of the future. Saturday afternoon, Oakville, Ontario native Nikki Cece announced her verbal commitment to play for the Badgers.

Currently tending goal for the Oakville Jr. Hornets of the Provincial Women's Hockey League, Cece will be a 2016 recruit. That lines Cece up to take the spot of current redshirt junior Megan Miller when she graduates. Cece will overlap with current starting goaltender, sophomore Ann-Renée Desbiens, by one season.

Cece has played in five games this season for Oakville, and has registered a 2.13 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage while notching one shutout.
