College Hockey:
NCAA To Investigate Minnesota

Reportedly Gopher head coach Doug Woog gave co-captain Chris McAlpine $500 after the conclusion of the 1993-94 hockey season, once defenseman McAlpine had used up his hockey eligibility. The money was to be used to finish school.

University officials had no official comment to make on the matter.

McAlpine played four years for the Minnesota team, from the 1990-91 seasons. In his senior season he was co-captain, and is on the all time leader board for assists and points by a Minnesota defensemen. He was named to the second team All America squad in 1994.

McAlpine is currently with the Albany River Rats of the AHL.
