BIG TEN MEDAL OF HONOR 100TH ANNIVERSARY SPOTLIGHT – Wisconsin’s Erik Raygor: During his four years as a forward at Wisconsin, Erik Raygor made quite the impression on the ice and in the community.

He was awarded the Big Ten Medal of Honor in 1998, the same year that he earned the Hockey Humanitarian Award, given annually to the college hockey player who best exemplifies personal character and commitment to studies.
