This afternoon, the Big Ten Conference has announced that they’ve suspended Wisconsin Badgers junior ice hockey player Jedd Soleway. He’s been suspended for one game under the conference’s supplemental discipline process.
This comes on the heels of an incident in a game against Alaska Nanooks last night. The conference was forced to take action after they reviewed what occurred in the third period.
Near the 18:17 mark of the third period, Soleway hit an Alaskan player from behind, which results in a major penalty and a game misconduct.
He’ll be ineligible to play in tonight’s game, which is also against Alaska.
The Big Ten Conference says that this matter is now closed and they will have no further comment on it.
Tyler Morley also had two goals for the Nanooks. He first had a short-handed goal in the second period, before adding another one late in the third quarter.
Nolan Huysmans also scored a goal in the second quarter.
Soleway was a seventh-round draft pick, 193rd overall in the 2013 NHL Draft.
This season, he had four goals and three assists for seven points. He also has a 53 PIM and a -18 in the +/- in 22 games.
