That's awesome. Looking at his path I see he played AAA hockey in Madison, then made & played for the U.S. National Team Development Program over in Ann Arbor, MI for a couple years. Then one year in the USHL and they got him playing as a freshman in Denver.

Reading his old reports, although undersized lots of really good strengths about him.

I learned this past Frozen Four there were eight players from Wisconsin on the various teams. I see Denver also has Kevin Conley out of Wausau West.
