College Hockey:
Sacred Heart Sanctioned By ECAC

— The Sacred Heart men’s hockey program, like Fairfield and Quinnipiac before it, has been declared ineligible for the ECAC playoffs because it awarded athletic scholarships, the Associated Press reported Friday.

According to ECAC officials, Sacred Heart’s games will not count towards the ECAC North/Central/South league standings. The penalties are identical to those levied against the other two schools, Fairfield earlier this week and Quinnipiac last December.

All three programs are preparing to join the newly-created Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference, which will start play as college hockey’s fifth Division I conference next season.
