Minnesota forward Luke Levandowski commits to Wisconsin Badgers men’s hockey team

December 15, 2018 GMT

The University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team added to its recruiting list Friday night with an oral commitment by Minnesota forward Luke Levandowski.

Levandowski, 16, is a sophomore for Rosemount High School in the Twin Cities suburbs who has scored four goals in his first five games this season.

He was a finalist for the Minnesota Bantam player of the year award from Youth Hockey Hub last season.

The earliest he’ll join the Badgers is the fall of 2021.

A 5-foot-11, 148-pound left-hand shot, Levandowski was described by Youth Hockey Hub last season as a “sleek skater with great hands and vision.”

Levandowski played for the Minnesota Blades U16 team before the high school season.

He’s the seventh player born in 2002 who has given a non-binding oral commitment to play for the Badgers. The other six all are in 11th grade this season.

UW has five other 10th graders on its recruiting list: forwards Ethan Mann and Caden Brown and defensemen Grayden Daul, Joe Palodichuk and Corson Ceulemans.
