St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Wisconsin freshman forward Nic Kerdiles scored late in the second period on Saturday night to give the Badgers a 3-2 win over Colorado College in the 2013 Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) Final Five tournament at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn. Tyler Barnes and Sean Little also scored for the Badgers, and Joel Rumpel finished with 20 saves in the winning effort. The Wisconsin goaltender was also named the Final Five MVP after allowing just five goals across three games in the tournament.
