Sammy Banga has been accepted to graduate school at Brock University , and will be returning to the Badger men’s hockey team this season as a result. Last year, the Windsor, Ontario native served as alternate captain for the Badgers. Banga played left wing for the Badgers, and was awarded Rookie of the Year for the 2013-14 season.
