The University of Wisconsin men's hockey team added another forward to its list of recruits.

Liam Malmquist, an 18-year-old from Edina, Minnesota, announced his nonbinding oral commitment to the Badgers on Twitter on Thursday.

Malmquist scored 30 goals and assisted on 31 in 30 games for Minnesota Class AA champion Edina as a senior last season. He potted his fourth hat trick of the season in the state semifinal against St. Thomas Academy.

Listed at 5-foot-8 and 146 pounds, Malmquist was a classmate of defenseman Mike Vorlicky, who has signed to be part of next season's Badgers freshman class.

Malmquist was selected by the Madison Capitols in the second round of the United States Hockey League draft, 27th overall, earlier this month.
