Wiercioch Switches

Defenseman Patrick Wiercioch verbally committed to Wisconsin this winter, but this week, switched his commitment by signing a letter of intent with Denver.

Wisconsin has many, some might say too many, defenseman committed to their team for the next couple of seasons, and Wiercioch would have had to wait to 2009 to join the Badgers. But Denver had a spot on their blueline open up when David Carle's hockey career was sadly cut short, and Wiercioch, who was a second round draft pick of the Ottawa Senators in this year's draft, was anxious to play college hockey next season, and jumped at the opportunity.
