The Michigan State Spartans hockey team was slated to play a two-game series at Munn Ice Arena Tuesday and Wednesday this week against the Wisconsin Badgers. However, a positive COVID-19 test within the Wisconsin program has caused the series to be postponed.
There is no official make-up date for the series scheduled at this time. MSU is 2-3-1 and the Badgers are currently 5-5. The initial 10-game schedule released for the first half of Big Ten play leaves just a two game series at Notre Dame left.
