College Hockey:
Lowell Goalie Suspended

— UMass-Lowell athletic director Dana Skinner has confirmed reports that goalie Martin Fillion was suspended for violating team rules.

Tuesday’s Boston Globe reports that Fillion’s suspension spans four games. He will miss Lowell’s Hockey East-opening series against UMass-Amherst Oct. 25-26, and the two game stint with Boston College on Nov. 1-2.

Reportedly, Fillion will be eligible to play again on Nov. 8 against Merrimack.

Fillion, a native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, was the work-horse for Lowell last season posting a 24-9-3 record with a 3.79 goals against average. Fillion was a preseason All-Hockey East selection this season.
