Wisconsin redshirt sophomore forward Morgan Zulinick has left the University of Wisconsin hockey program in order to move back to British Columbia and spend more time with his young son, according to a press release from the school. Zulinick was quoted in the release:
"I've decided after three years here at Wisconsin, my heart is back home with my family and my son, Noah," Zulinick explained. "I've found my desire to be back home with Noah outweighs my desire to continue on playing hockey. I think I really need this."
Zulinick was third on the Badgers in scoring last season with a scoring line of 5-10-15 in 35 games, and would have been the second-highest returning scorer on next year's Badger team.
