Patrick Johnson

The Wisconsin State Journal reports Patrick Johnson of the Lincoln Stars will be headed to the University of Wisconsin, even as early as next fall.

All in the family Patrick Johnson, whose father and grandfather are Badgers legends, appears headed for UW and could play as early as next season.

Johnson, 17, now plays for Lincoln (Neb.) of the U.S. Junior Hockey League where he has seven goals, three assists and 10 points in nine games for the Stars.

Johnson definitely deserves a look at big schools, but another year in the USHL may be beneficial. Coach Mike Eaves could use the offense though.
