Badgers hire Strand as hockey assistant

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) - Badgers hockey head coach Mike Eaves has filled another vacancy on his staff with a local coach. Eaves announced the hiring of Madison Capitols head coach/general manager Luke Strand.

"I am excited to get a coach of Luke's background to join our staff," Eaves said. "If you look at his resume, in kind of academic terms, he's got his Ph.D. in coaching."

Strand grew up in Wisconsin. He played and coached at UW-Eau Claire. He also had stops at St. Norbert College and the Green Bay Gamblers. So, for Strand, this job was an opportunity that hit close to home.

"The opportunity to be at the University of Wisconsin for me is a bucket-list opportunity that in being from the state is impossible to pass up."
