The Bobcats will be without captain Chase Priskie.
He’s been suspended for two games after a kicking penalty against Yale last Saturday.
It happened after Bulldogs player Tyler Welsh fell to the ice. It was kick to the chest area.
It drew a five minute major and game disqualification, which comes with a one game suspension.
After review, the ECAC added an additional game.
Priskie said in a release that he reached out to Welsh and said his action has no place in the sport.
Yale head coach Keith Allain is not fond of the league ruling. He said,
“I think the suspension is woefully insufficient, I mean i’ve been around hockey my whole life. I’ve never seen a guy kick someone and were talking about a player who was down on the ice was not threat to you whatsoever and you’ve got this molded plastic boot with a 12 inch razor blade on the end of it and you’re kicking to do damage, I think our league made a huge mistake in its judgement of this one. The penalty should’ve been much more severe.”
It was an uncharacteristic play from the senior defenseman. It was the first major penalty of Priskie’s career.
