2005-06: Ben Street was probably the best player on the Wisconsin roster this season that almost no one was talking about. The Coquitlam, BC native was one of just six Badgers to play in all 43 games this season and the only player on the team who didn’t register a single penalty minute. He notched 15 points (ten goals, five assists). One of Street’s most memorable performances came in the NCAA Semi-Final versus Maine on April 6. In that contest, he posted a goal to help lead the Badgers to a 5-2 win and a spot in the national championship game.
Street is an extremely intelligent player who is quite meticulous in his approach to the game. Not surprisingly, he is also the consummate student of the game. Street is a player that works and competes hard yet draws very little attention to himself. One of the most impressive attributes about Street is his great ability in assessing situations on the ice. He has great awareness, especially as far as where his teammates are and has a knack for picking his spots on the ice carefully. He is strong on skates and has good speed. In addition, Street possesses a heavy shot to go along with a very quick release.
