Big Ten puck 2

The University of Wisconsin men's hockey team returns from a three-week break Friday night against Michigan State, and it'll be without its captain.

Luke Kunin, who won a gold medal at the World Junior Championship on Thursday in Montreal, is sitting out the opener against the Spartans.

It's the first Badgers game that Kunin has missed since Jan. 23, 2016, against Minnesota.
