The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s hockey team has been on an exciting journey this season, showing remarkable progress and determination as they navigate their way through a challenging schedule.

The season opener saw the UW-Milwaukee hockey team face off against the formidable Louisville Cardinals, a tough opponent by any measure. Although they put up a valiant effort, the Panthers fell short, suffering a tough series loss. Their second series of the season, against Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE), also ended in disappointment as they were unable to secure a win.


However, the team’s fortunes began to turn around when they faced off against Aurora University. In a thrilling match, the Panthers secured their first win of the season in game 2, showcasing their potential and tenacity.


The following week, the Panthers faced a strong DePaul University team and managed to take them into overtime. While they couldn’t clinch the victory, the team demonstrated their ability to compete with top-tier teams. The Panthers were hungry for more success.


The momentum continued to build as they split the series with Roosevelt University, showing that they could go toe-to-toe with another competitive squad. But the most significant achievement came when they took on the Lewis Flyers. The Panthers delivered an impressive performance, sweeping the series and securing a crucial pair of victories.


With this impressive sequence of results, the UW-Milwaukee hockey team now holds a record of 4-6-1-1, a testament to their growing strength as a team. Leading the charge is Jake Boudreau, the team’s leading scorer, with six goals and seven assists to his name. His contributions have been vital to the team’s success. Captain Cade Knoeppel has been instrumental in providing leadership both on and off the ice, guiding his teammates towards their goals.


As the season progresses, the Panthers are now setting their sights on an eagerly anticipated matchup with their cross-town rivals, Marquette University. This game promises to be a thrilling showdown and a significant test of their skills and determination.
