Andy Baggot of the Wisconsin State Journal reported yesterday that Wisconsin forward Chris Hickey will be transferring to another school, after it became apparent that he wouldn't be playing much for the Badgers.
It's no surprise that he didn't play much at Wisconsin last year, since UW's coaches wanted to keep him in juniors another year, but Hickey convinced them to take him last year. It's another story of a kid that really wanted to play for Wisconsin, and was told that he could, but when the time came, there wasn't any room for him. It's also another red flag for any kid considering committing to Wisconsin. This type of thing has happened frequently enough over the past couple of years that it should make any player think twice before agreeing to play for the Badgers.
