Skille staying with Badgers
The Wisconsin State Journal reported that Jack Skille will return to Wisconsin for his sophomore season.
This is a big development for the defending national champion Badgers, who lost their top five scorers from last season's team. Skille, a first round pick of the Chicago Blackhawks in 2005, will be looked at as the big offensive weapon for Wisconsin this season.
In the story, Skille says that if he wanted to sign, Chicago would have struck a deal with him.
It sounds like UND's Jonathan Toews is in a very similar situation. If Toews wants to sign, there is no doubt Chicago will do so. But Toews has said that he wants to make sure he will be on the NHL roster and he will be an impact player before he signs. Otherwise, he said he would be happy to return to UND for his sophomore season.
