Wisconsin's Street Lost At Least 3 Months
CHN Staff Report
Wisconsin, off to an 0-4 start for the first time in the modern era, lost co-captain Ben Street, for at least three months and perhaps the entire season.
Street suffered ligament damage in his right knee, according to reports, in the first period of last Saturday's game against Denver, when Pioneers defenseman John Ryder checked Street, then landed on the back of his leg.
Street, a key member of the special teams and the team's best faceoff man, will sit out after 128 consecutive games played.
"What a way to miss your first game," Street told the Capital Times. "It's going to be a long time. Thankfully, I guess, it was early in the season, and I think there's an option to redshirt so I could get another season out of it. You can't be upset, you can't be too down about it. It is what it is. Things happen for a reason, and we'll just make the best of the situation."
Street told the paper that he's more inclined to take a medical redshirt and come back for another season, than to leave Wisconsin after this year.
