Joseph LaBate, a 6-foot-4, 195-pound center who played for the Academy of Holy Angels in Minnesota, has confirmed to The Hockey News that he has committed to the University of Wisconsin.
LaBate had 29 goals and 52 points in 26 games for the high school team, which did not qualify for the state tournament. In the Stars’ playoff loss to Prior Lake, LaBate had points on all three of his team’s goals.
He will play for the Badgers next season and is draft eligible this summer, where he is expected to go in the second or third round.
