What's wrong with the Yellowjackets? That's the question buzzing around town as the University of Wisconsin-Superior men's hockey team takes a 1-1-3 record into Thursday's Northern Collegiate Hockey Association opener at UW-Stout. The Yellowjackets opened the season with a win over Northland College (6-0), a loss to St. Thomas (3-0) and ties with St. Mary's (4-4), Augsburg (2-2) and Hamline (1-1).
