College Hockey:
Three Maine Students Charged

— Three members of Maine’s men’s hockey team face charges of criminal threatening, and will appear in Bangor District Court on Jan. 16, 1998.

The charges come following a Dec. 14 incident in which one student allegedly made “reprehensible” comments, and at least one student may be charged with making racial slurs in violation of Maine’s Civil Rights Act.

The three players alledgedly involved in a threatening phone call, which included insulting racial language, are 22-year-old junior Bryan Masotta, 22-year-old sophomore Shawn Mansoff, and 23-year-old junior Matthew Oliver.

The three players have been suspended from the hockey team for an indefinite period of time by the team’s coach, Shawn Walsh.
