Army sophomore Shane Hearn received a one-game suspension from Atlantic Hockey commissioner Robert DeGregorio for a hit in the Black Knights 2-0 win over Canisius on Saturday at West Point.
Hearn leveled Canisius junior forward Matthew Grazen early in the game. No penalty was called but DeGregorio and Gene Binda, Atlantic Hockey Supervisor of Officials, determined Hearn targeted Grazen's head.
Grazen left the game and did not return while Hearn scored both goals for Army, including an empty-netter.
Hearn will sit out Army's next game, scheduled for Friday Dec. 20 against Providence. Interesting to note it's a non-conference game.
Grazen, who has seven assists and is a plus-8, suffered a lower-body injury. The team has been off for final exams and does not play again until Dec. 28-29 when they travel to Vermont to play in the Catamount Cup.
