Jack Skille will return to Badger hockey team for at least one more season

Finally, some positive news about Badger hockey...

from Associated Press

MADISON, Wis. - Right winger Jack Skille says he's decided to return to the University of Wisconsin hockey team for his sophomore season.
Skille was chosen by Chicago in the first round of the 2005 National Hockey League entry draft, but said he decided after discussions with his family it would be best to continue his development with the Badgers.
"I decided there was just too much of a gray area," Skille said. "I want to go (to the pros) when it's 100 percent, when I feel like I'm absolutely ready to make the jump."
Skille had 13 goals and eight assists in 41 games as a freshman.
Wisconsin coach Mike Eaves said he believed Skille "made a wise, mature decision."
