Verona native Claudia Kepler, who co-captained the University of Wisconsin women's hockey team last season, will play professionally in Sweden.

Kepler has signed a one-year contract to play for HV71, the team announced Friday.

Kepler led the Badgers with 22 goals in her only season with the team following a transfer from Ohio State.

Because of the move, she had to sit out the 2016-17 season under Western Collegiate Hockey Association rules.

She was selected for the WCHA's second team after a 25-point senior season.

Former Badgers defensemen Meaghan Mikkelson and Molly Engstrom played professionally in Sweden in the 2017-18 season.
