Pregame

The University of Wisconsin men's hockey team has shuffled the left wings on its top three lines for Saturday's game against No. 3 Ohio State at the Kohl Center (7 p.m., FSW+, 1310 AM).

That puts the third line of Roman Ahcan, Dominick Mersch and Brock Caufield back together; it had been successful before Ahcan got moved up to play with Tarek Baker and Sean Dhooghe.

The Badgers are retiring the No. 10 jersey of all-time leading scorer Mark Johnson in a pregame ceremony.
